Ferry and Brandon’s Cost Planning of Buildings

Written by: Richard Kirkham

The eighth edition of this leading textbook has been thoroughly updated to reflect the significant changes that have occurred in the UK construction industry since the new millennium.

Whilst retaining its core structure of the three–phase cost planning process originally developed by Ferry and Brandon, the text provides a thorough grounding in contemporary issues including procurement innovation, whole life–cycle costing and modelling techniques.
Designed to support the core cost planning studies covered by students reading for degrees in quantity surveying and construction management, it provides a platform for understanding the fundamental importance of effective cost planning practice.
The principals of elemental cost planning are covered from both pre– and post– contract perspectives; the role of effective briefing and client/stakeholder engagement as best practice is also reinforced in this text.
