Construction Economics provides students with the principles underlying the relationship between economic theory and the construction industry. Its new approach specifically examines the problems of securing sustainable construction and this fifth edition broadens the message to address the immediacy of the problems relating to the carbon-based world that we have constructed. Embracing the whole process of the construction life cycle, the new edition discusses the economic impact of the Covid pandemic on the industry and the broader implications of the promise to build back better. It also includes new coverage of the opportunities offered by technology, the establishment of higher standards to achieve greater energy efficiency and wellbeing, the adoption of the principles of a circular economy, the retrofit of existing buildings and the recycling of materials. New sections also highlight the methodology of the subject to identify the boundaries of construction economics and clarify what to expect and what can be achieved. As with previous editions, it retains a tried and tested format including: a clear and user-friendly style use of colour for emphasis regular summaries of key points a glossary of key terms extensive use of tables, figures and data readings from Construction Management and Economics tutorial questions to review each section research guidance reviews of useful websites.
