SSUD71-125: Feasibility Analysis

Description

This subject builds upon the principles of knowledge established in the subject SSUD71-124 Property Development. The primary purpose of Feasibility Analysis is to allow students to gain the skills to be able to prepare advanced feasibility studies on mixed-use property development projects using a variety of case studies and industry-accepted feasibility programs. The content considers more complex projects and models the time, cost and value variables and includes a detailed analysis of project risk. The subject will involve a number of site inspections, case studies and guest lecturers/development practitioners to provide insights into real-life projects and examines how successful developers manage a diverse range of project parameters.
