Securing the right site

This module covers the development process from site selection through to acquisition. You’ll walk away with an understanding of how to find out what the market is looking for and where to find planning information. Armed with an understanding of zoning you move onto ways to structure the acquisition from a financial perspective followed by an overview of contract, property, and construction law. The day wraps up with a final session on site identification and how to negotiate its acquisition.

07 OCT
Practical application

The focus of this module is wrapping your head around the due diligence, funding, and feasibility aspects of development. A developer will take you through a practical case study detailing the due diligence process for a project as well as costing and pricing.

The last piece of the puzzle is understanding a feasibility study, which you’ll be walked through by a seasoned professional.
