The economic analysis of a building is a complex subject and traditionally it has focused on a single aspect of the structure or a single part of the construction process. Dr Tempelmans Plat is a leading proponent of a new methodology which focuses on the building as a stock of services to be supplied over a long lifespan. This method is more realistic since it takes into account the changes in use and the adaptation of the building over its life. This book will be the first to make this method comprehensible to a wide audience of postgraduate students and professionals in the field of construction economics.
unique in its focus on the building as a durable means of production
presents an innovative and valuable new approach to building economics
includes many examples to highlight the practical relevance of the approach

From the Foreword: "Herman Tempelmans Plat has been among the first scholars who have reflected on the economic consequences of what has become known as the 'Open Building Approach'. What he calls 'horizontal segmentation' takes into account the hierarchical structure of the large project. This book summarises his findings. Its methodology may serve many. Ultimately, builders, designers, manufacturers and users, as much as clients will benefit from a solid economic base for a more flexible and responsive built environment." N.
