Sustainable Property Development

De
192 pages
This book identifies, defines and explains in detail property-related environmental issues. It is written in an easy-to-follow style and presented in a lively format.

Issues are explained with reference to relevant background information, practical issues and problems posed.

The book is supported by current case studies, and there is learning material - with model answers - for students and lecturers to use for group work.

Each topic - e.g. law, economics, property development - is structured in the same way: headline - the big issues and important questions; background - historical, legislative, technical; practical problems and solutions; discussion points; case studies; sources of information/further study.
