Research in property and construction covers a wide range of activities. While we are interested in every aspect of research in property and construction, there are particular areas we specialise in. These include property valuation, construction and project management, construction economics, and energy use in buildings.

In property and planning, our recent research has focused on business improvement districts, the use of taxation in sustainable development, and property and development finance. Property research has also focused on commercial leases and rent reviews.

Research into the technical aspects of construction concerns the role of building services and design technology for low carbon building. Other research is concerned with fibre-reinforced concrete, passive solar design, and energy issues of the built environment.

Our construction management research focuses on incentivisation schemes in project management, risk management of projects and project finance. Research in construction economics has been in infrastructure markets, international construction and economic theory applied to the construction sector.
