Considers a building as an economic instrument that can serve to maximise a client's return on their investment. Useful for construction clients, this book examines the problem of managing a building as an investment, and discusses how a well-designed and constructed asset can deliver greater capital returns for the client.
The benefits delivered by well-designed business premises are often intangible and thus overlooked in favour of low cost solutions. Current market-based approaches to property valuations frequently neglect to take account of the costs and benefits that can accrue through `design investment' - investment that is specifically targeted towards increasing the quality of a building so it better meets the needs of the clients.How Buildings Add Value for Clients considers a building as an economic instrument that can serve to maximise a client's return on their investment.
