      I was looking into a book that would give guidance on how particular design decisions affects the cost of a building. For example, I was reading Mitchell's Structure & Fabric Part 1 and there was a section termed " Economic aspects of building construction". Get this from a library! Cost-effective building: economic concepts and constructions. [Christian Schittich;] -- "Cost efficient building requires particular care and attention throughout the entire planning and construction process - starting with office organisation, through the design phase and coordination.

      A direct benefit of good cost planning is to reduce project risk. Steps should be taken to ensure that project development budget opportunities and threats are fully identified and assessed. Ferry and Brandon, in previous editions of this book, described the cost planning process in three phases: Phase 1. Defining the brief and setting the budget. More conventionally, cost has to do with the relationship between the value of production inputs and the level of output. Total cost refers to the total expense incurred in reaching a particular level of output; if such total cost is divided by the quantity produced, average or unit cost is obtained. A portion of the total cost known as fixed cost—e.g., the costs of a building lease or of.

      Approach to cost planning. The purpose of initial cost estimates is to enable the project team to make timely decisions on the key elements of the design, such as building form. Once these have been agreed attention turns to detailing the major elements of the building and preparing realistic costs is key to enable options to be quickly assessed.   Book Description. This practical guide to cost studies of buildings has been updated and revised throughout for the 6th edition. New developments in RICS New Rules of Measurement (NRM) are incorporated throughout the book, in addition to new material on e-business, the internet, social media, building information modelling, sustainability, building resilience and carbon estimating.
