Accounting for Construction : Frameworks, Productivity, Cost and Performance, Hardback Book

Accounting for Construction : Frameworks, Productivity, Cost and Performance Hardback

Edited by Rick (Bond University, Australia) Best, Jim (University College London, UK) Meikle


Accounting for Construction follows on from Measuring Construction, edited by the same team.

It extends the coverage of some of the material in the first volume and expands the range of related topics to include, inter alia, shadow economies, accounting for informal construction and the treatment of the built environment sector in national accounts.

Taken together, the two volumes collate a range of topics that are only addressed, if addressed at all, in occasional academic papers and the publications of bodies such as national statistical offices and the World Bank.

Accounting for Construction presents international examples from the UK, Australia and New Zealand and from both academic and professional contributors.

This book is essential reading for all researchers and professionals interested in construction economics, construction management, and anyone interested in how the construction industry affects the global economy in ways previously under-represented in the literature.
