The movement away from traditional rented approaches to meeting the housing needs of those on modest incomes has taken on new momentum in the latest economic cycle. This book answers some of the questions around affordable housing and low cost home ownership, and whether these intermediate tenures have the potential to play a longer term role in achieving sustainable housing markets. The editors clarify the principles on which the development of affordable housing and intermediate tenures has been based; analyse the policy instruments used to implement these ideas; and make a preliminary assessment of their longer tem value to households and governments alike. Making Housing More Affordable: the role of intermediate tenures brings together an evidence base for researchers and policy makers as they assess past experience and work to understand future options. The book draws mainly on experience of the intermediate housing market in England but also on examples of policies that have been implemented across the world. It clarifies both the challenges and the achievements of governments in providing a well operating intermediate market that can help meet the fundamental goal of ‘a decent home for every household at a price within their means’. The first section outlines the principles and practice of intermediate housing and examines the instruments and mechanisms by which it has been provided internationally. The next section estimates who might benefit from being in intermediate housing and projects the take-up of different products in the future. Section III examines the supply side and Section IV introduces some case studies of who gets what. The final section looks at how effectively the intermediate market operates over the economic cycle.

This timely book addresses key challenges faced by policy makers and the house-building industry in a post-credit crunch world. It examines the implications for households, the housing market, the economy, as well as for government's policy choices. Challenges of the Housing Economy: an international perspective brings together experts from around the world to examine recent housing market trends. The contributions reveal common long-term trends in housing markets worldwide. Despite differences in supply conditions and the role of planning, there is a trend toward rising house prices that has created significant barriers to home ownership for young households while increasing the wealth of older generations. The financial crisis had a differential impact on housing markets but in many countries where mortgage finance became severely constrained, house prices fell and there was a dramatic fall in housing construction. The falls in house prices in these countries have ostensibly improved affordability but the housing markets have been dominated by the lowering of loan to values applicable to new mortgages which has further raised the hurdles to potential first-time purchasers. At the same time as young households are increasingly rationed out of owner-occupation, public sector expenditure cut-backs in many countries result in limited new social housing. Instead, value for money imperatives will mean new funding models for affordable housing that require greater use of public-private partnerships. The private rented sector could potentially meet the demand for the new generation of long-term renters. However, there are doubts – in the UK at least – that this sector will be able to expand significantly or provide an appropriate type and standard of housing. This is an essential advanced text for students and researchers of land economy and land management; property and real estate; housing policy; and urban studies.

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Africa, , language: English, abstract: Rental housing takes the biggest share in Addis Ababa's housing stock; above 50 percent. 37% is the share of the private rental sector; which is characterised by continuous rise in rent price and is becoming unaffordable for many poor households. Contrary to this is the public rental housing sector (PRH); it provides the most affordable housing units so far. With unrevised rent price and contract the sector has become permanent affordable shelter for many. Government policy that promotes home ownership has frozen the production of new PRH units.The study examines existing PRH stock in Addis Ababa in search of potentials and lessons for further developing the sector in the future. It focuses on apartments constructed by Agency for Government Houses (AGH); and studies development process, target group and management. Based on findings the study also proposes a strategy for developing thesector anew.

Winner of the Royal Town Planning Institute award for research excellence This critical examination of the development and implementation of planning gain is timely given recent changes to the economic and policy environment. The book looks both at the British context as well as experience in other developed economies and takes stock of how the policy has evolved. It examines the rationale for planning gain, how it has delivered substantial funds for infrastructure and affordable housing and, in the light of this, how it might continue to play a role in the funding of these. It also draws on overseas experience, for example on impact fees and public sector land assembly. It looks at lessons from the past for future policy, both for Britain and for countries overseas. Mechanisms to tap development value are also a global phenomenon in developed market economies – whether through formal taxation or negotiated contributions. As fiscal austerity becomes an increasingly challenging issue, ‘planning gain’ has grown in importance as a potential source of funding for infrastructure and new affordable housing, with many countries keen to examine, learn from, and adapt the experience of others. a critical commentary of planning gain as a policy timely post credit crunch analysis addresses recent planning policy changes

The Government of the United Kingdom launched the Help to Buy scheme as a response to the persistent mismatch in housing supply and demand along with the consequent trend of ever rising house prices. In the book on hand the different components of the scheme are described and their official aims are revealed. These are contrasted with the real effects the scheme has on the residential property market. It is further evaluated whether Help to Buy has the intended impact and therefore is an appropriate measure to narrow the gap between housing supply and demand in addition to making home ownership more affordable. In this context, a cost-benefit analysis is undertaken and the scheme's scientific verification is assessed. Suggestions are presented on how to better target the scheme and alternative measures to tackle the problems on the housing market are developed. Finally, a recommendation for the most appropriate transition strategy after the expiration of Help to Buy is made and an unconventional view on the relevance of a high home ownership rate for an economy is expounded.

The Global Leadership and Organizational Behaviour Effectiveness Research Program has started in 1993 and continues until today. The aim of the GLOBE project was to develop societal and organisational measures of culture and leadership attributes that could be used across cultures (House, Hanges, Ruiz-Quintanilla, Dorfman, Javidan, Dickson, Gupta et al., 1999). Before starting the project a common understanding and definition of Leadership and Culture was achieved. GLOBE researchers agreed to define the LEADERSHIP: "Leadership is the ability of an individual to influence, motivate and enable others to contribute towards effectiveness and success of the organizations of which they are members" (House et al. 2004; 15). The GLOBE team used the four leadership attributes developed by Geert Hofstede: uncertainty avoidance, masculinity femininity, individualism-collectivism, and more recently future orientation (Hofstede 1980, 1991) as a basic and developed nine leadership characteristics: Performance Orientation, Uncertainty Avoidance, Humane Or...

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, University of Huddersfield, course: Msc. Business Project Management, language: English, abstract: Over the past two decades, the Pakistani construction sector is experiencing many problems particularly housing shortages, cost and time overruns, and construction defects due to lack of adequate project management practices. The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of project management practices in Pakistan compared to the UK to avoid time and cost overruns of construction projects. A blend of primary and secondary data collection methods are used to achieve this aim where primary data is collected through survey method. The findings of the paper suggest that Pakistani construction industry is different from the UK in terms of not adequately practicing most of the project management practices. A majority of construction participants agreed that such practices are inherent to avoid the cost/time overruns but some problematic factors are hindering the implementation of those practices in Pakistan.Some of the critical factors include changes in the scope of the project, lack of knowledge, skills and experience, fear of change, lack of top management commitment, and excessive bureaucracy. The paper concludes with a set of recommendations to Pakistani construction sector explaining how they can adopt modern PM practices undertaken in developed countries ...

There are few images of 20th century architecture more iconic than the nighttime view of Case Study House #22 set on its eagle's-nest site high above the lights of Los Angeles. With his two innovative houses for the famous project of the Arts and Architecture magazine, American architect Pierre Koenig (1925-2004) became one of the leading figures of the Modern movement in America. While still a student of architecture, he designed and built his first exposed steel house in 1950, proving that the use of prefabricated materials could allow for spatial freedom in affordable houses. Koenig's houses, like the Johnson House (1962) or the Oberman House (1962), are a direct response to Southern California's extremely warm and dry climate. His work is deeply marked by his commitment to environmentally and socially responsible design. His houses have thus become characteristic of the spirit of a whole generation: they perfectly capture the excitement and optimism of the American postwar society. Издание на английском языке.

It was developed by the Office of Government Commerce and launched by the name PRINCE2 in 1996. PRINCE2 is now a de facto project management standard and widely used by the UK government as well as in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally.PRINCE2 is a process oriented approach, which can be adjusted to any type of project due to its flexibility and scalability. The approach and the needed basic knowledge are assigned to three categories: processes, components and techniques. Processes ensure that start, end and advancement of the project are monitored and controlled. The processes embrace the activities from setting the project off on the right track, through controlling and managing the progress to the completion of the project. Each PRINCE2 project will have to regard these processes differently. The following processes are applied in PRINCE2: Starting Up a Project, Initiating a Project, Directing a Project, Controlling a Stage, Managing Product Delivery, Managing Stage Boundaries, Closing a Project and Planning. The components are key aspects of project management that are used throughout the processes and include the Business Case,...

The Melnikov House: Icon of Modernism, Family Home, Architecture Museum

The Melnikov House, a building designed by the architect Konstantin Melnikov in Moscow for his family (1927 - 1929), is an icon of the architectural avant-garde. The house was originally built as an experimental cylindrical house to test out Konstantin Melnikov's very own concept of mass construction of residential estate. The original layout, elegant spatial arrangement, and smart engineering techniques made this masterpiece world famous. According to the words of Melnikov, the essence of the house lies in its 'even distribution of weight, light, air, and heat'. Being of a unique architectural form, it still looks modern while retaining the authentic memorial atmosphere of the twentieth century, thus reflecting the tragic life of this maverick architect. This book covers the house in its current condition - during its transformation from a family home to the State Melnikovs Museum, awaiting an in-depth survey by specialists and conservation works. The book contains rich archival materials as well as recent photographs. It describes the challenges and choices that need to be made during the process of museumification. Many of the memorial objects from the house linked to the professional life of the architect will be published for the first time.

The Arden family has fallen on hard times -- Edred and his sister, Elfrida, live in a small cottage with their Aunt Edith near their ancestral home. "It had been a great house once, with farms and fields, money and jewels -- with tenants and squires and men-at-arms. The head of the house had ridden out three days' journey to meet King Henry at the boundary of his estate, and the King had ridden back with him to lie in the tall State bed in the castle guest-chamber. The heir of the house had led his following against Cromwell; younger sons of the house had fought in foreign lands, to the honor of England and the gilding and regilding with the perishable gold of glory of the old Arden name."

All countries aim to improve housing conditions for their citizens but many have been forced by the financial crisis to reduce government expenditure. Social housing is at the crux of this tension. Policy-makers, practitioners and academics want to know how other systems work and are looking for something written in clear English, where there is a depth of understanding of the literature in other languages and direct contributions from country experts across the continent. Social Housing in Europe combines a comparative overview of European social housing written by scholars with in-depth chapters written by international housing experts. The countries covered include Austria, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, The Netherlands and Sweden, with a further chapter devoted to CEE countries other than Hungary. The book provides an up-to-date international comparison of social housing policy and practice. It offers an analysis of how the social housing system currently works in each country, supported by relevant statistics. It identifies European trends in the sector, and opportunities for innovation and improvement. These country-specific chapters are accompanied by topical thematic chapters dealing with subjects such as the role of social housing in urban regeneration, the privatisation of social housing, financing models, and the impact of European Union state aid regulations on the definitions and financing of social housing.

Managing a major remodel of your home involves learning various aspects of a construction project: permitting; hiring contractors; clarifying what you really mean and want; managing a budget; overseeing quality, avoiding regrets; doing what’s right for yourself and standing up for yourself. It’s a big job. The learning curve is high and often we homeowners don’t get to apply the skills we learned again.In this book, the stories of a couple going through this learning curve is told through the lens of a novice just like a conversation with a homeowner over a cup of tea. What they thought they wanted (a brand new house in modern minimalist style with solar panels and recycled materials) is very different than what they ended up with (remodel of a 90-year-old house in the classic Arts and Crafts style to meet the stringent international building standard called Passive House). What caused this shift? How did they choose the contractor? How did they navigate out of overwhelm of green building choices? How did they manage the relationships? What would they do differently? Was it worth it?This book chronicles the journey by a couple from choosing the location through living in the house after the renovation completion. It wasn’t all about finding smart people and following expert guidance. When expert opinions diverged and they got stuck in analysis paralysis they had to trust their judgment and chose what they felt was right for them. After all, they’ll be living in the house for ...

Housing problem is severe in Dhaka, one of the most densely populated cities of the world. Due to the enormous population growth in Dhaka in the past decades, it is almost impossible on the part of the government to ensure housing for all. The Formal Private Sector Housing that constitutes Real Estate developers has evolved to quench the ever increasing thirst of people for shelter. Construction of apartment buildings has become a viable solution to meet the growing demand for residential accommodation in the limited land of Dhaka. At the beginning most of the developers aimed to cater the upper income group of the society. But recently the private housing companies also started to construct apartment for the middle income people who are the largest segment of population of Dhaka city.This research try to investigate the issues related with housing standard expected by the middle income group and to study the affordability of the target group to meet the housing cost. The study also suggested some measures to address the expectation of the middle income residents of Dhaka.

The design process of every project is a complex and iterative one, which defines the project concept. It is the most important aspect of project definition, since it defines the scope, key deliverable and acceptable attributes. An effective design management process enhances the construction process and prevents scope creep. This research reviewed some models of the design process, highlighted the importance of the design management, and the role of project management in today's built environment. The book challenges managers of the design process to effectively coordinate the key stakeholders of the project to maximize gains and the achievement of key performance indicators and value for money on every project.

Ghana is faced with a huge housing deficit of at least 1,000,000. Governments, private individuals and the Ghana Real Estate Developers Association over the years have been making efforts to provide housing units for the populace especially the urban dwellers. In the light of these housing challenges, governments have resorted to borrowing heavily with its attendant high interest rates to build affordable houses for the citizenry. Observations in our communities however showed that not much or nothing at all is done to maintain the existing housing stock and yet building more houses seemed to be the concentration of our governments and individuals. This work therefore investigated the extent of management of both state and private residential facilities in the Bolgatanga Municipality in Ghana. Findings included low level of land documentation, absence of planned maintenance schedules, occupants mostly burdened with maintenance responsibility, among others. Suggestions made included the need for attitudinal change, among others. This work is expected to re-orient the state and property owners as well as Estate Officers to improve the maintenance of their real estates.

Written for small builders and tradesmen such as bricklayers and carpenters, as well as householders wanting to provide more space and enhanced living conditions without the substantial cost of moving house. While there are many books that deal with the construction aspects of extending a house, there are few sources that combine the planning, construction and regulatory aspects into one easily accessible source. Extending and Improving a Home meets that need. By focussing on specific building elements – foundations, walls, roofs, services, finishes etc – the book neatly provides a comprehensive, accessible guide to the areas of home improvement that cause most concern for householders and small builders. Extending and Improving a Home will: Guide you through the maze of legislation that affects most building alterations and extensions; show how to go about getting a project realised in terms of design, choice of contractor and construction, successfully and to budget, and give sound technical solutions for all the elements of a project that also comply with Building Regulations.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2018 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1.7, Furtwangen University, course: Master of Science, language: English, abstract: The goal of this thesis is to find and to analyze the factors that ignited the housing bubble across different countries and to apply them to the German mortgage market. The reason for research is that the global financial crisis emphasized the risks associated with real-estate booms.In any great financial crisis, the mortgage boom was buoyed by the housing rise and economic activity. When that spiral inverts, falling house prices make tightened lending standards, which bring to widespread failures and debt overhang. The consequences are recessions and high surges in public debt. The thesis is composed of four chapters, each of them dealing with different perspectives of housing boomlet and macro-financial factors.The purpose of this thesis is to define whether there are also housing bubbles within the German mortgage market, as well as to find out which factors prevent Germany from a housing bubble. In order to do so, secondary data from prestigious financial institutes will be analyzed. The result is that there is no housing bubble in Germany at the national level, but that there has been a housing bubble in several cities. Fusions of macroprudential policy (loan-to-value), monetary policy (interest rate) and other housing financial characteristics (term to maturity, cost of registering proper...

“Longer lifespans and the needs of the oldest old are challenging the senior living industry to find bold and compassionate solutions to combine programs and services with housing. Victor Regnier's latest research provides a thoughtful and insightful roadmap that arrays new ways of thinking from small-scale settings to community based options. International case studies offer possible solutions with the best thinking from around the globe…all with Vic's unique perspective of extracting themes and concepts that are broadly applicable and essential to addressing the needs of those that live on life's fragile edge.” —David Hoglund, FAIA “Supporting the independence of the oldest-old is a tough problem Victor Regnier addresses in his latest book on aging and housing. Like previous work, Victor relies on the best practices of northern Europeans to outline a three-prong approach. First, providing extremely comprehensive home care services in an «apartment for life» setting. Second, reforming the conventional nursing home by exploring small group style accommodations. Third, combining new technology with community based services to age in place. Case studies document the experiences of others in making these programs work here and abroad. The magnitude of the 90+ and 100+ population increases in the next 50 years make it clear how important it is to address this concern today.” —Edward Steinfeld Darch “The movement of health care from the institution to the home is a theme that Regnier identifies as one of the most important lessons in rethinking the issue of how to support the ever growing and increasingly aged older population here and abroad. He examines simple but profound approaches we can take in making long-term care a more humane proposition. Familiar themes like humanizing technology and optimizing the impact of the natural environment are brought together with clear policy thinking about what we need to do. The timing is good because the impact of this growing segment of society will have major repercussions on health care for the next 50-70 years.” —Stephan Verderber, Ph.D. A comprehensive guide to designing housing for the world’s aging population The dilemma of helping older people maintain their independence through better housing with services is growing. This book presents innovative solutions for those who create and provide housing for the world’s increasingly longer-living population. By focusing on three specific housing and service arrangements, it offers alternatives that provide greater freedom of choice than the current living arrangements that exist today. It presents selected examples of housing and service solutions from the US, Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands to stimulate thinking about the possibilities of community-based service models. Housing Design for an Increasingly Older Population looks at a trio of options for housing the “oldest-old:” the Dutch Apartment/Condo for Life Model (AFL); decentralized Small/Green Houses; and the provision of enhanced personal and health care for people who want to stay in their own home. It offers unique and eye-opening chapters covering: what older people want; what age changes affect independence; demographics and living arrangements; how long-term care is defined; concepts and objectives for housing the frail; care giving and management practices that avoid an institutional lifestyle; innovative case studies; programs that encourage staying at home with service assistance; therapeutic use of outdoor spaces; how technology will help people stay independent; and more. Based on the author’s numerous conversations with other experts, as well as his examinations of high quality settings from Northern Europe and the US Building case study examp

Harris Beider Race, Housing and Community. Perspectives on Policy and Practice

2234.04 руб.
This book provides an important new contribution to debates around housing policy and its impact on community cohesion. There has never been a more prescient time to discuss these concepts: the book provides an interpretation of housing, race and community cohesion in a highly politicized and fluid policy context. It is designed to initiate discussion and debate but this should not be esoteric and limited to a group of academics. Rather the objective is to bridge academic and policy audiences in the hope that this fusion provides a basis for a new agenda to discuss these topics. Race and community have been key features of social housing policy over the last 20 years with many high-profile interventions, from the proactive approach by the Housing Corporation to support black and minority ethnic housing associations, to the influential Cantle Report documenting segregation in towns and cities following riots, and the National Housing Federation led Race & Housing Inquiry leading to sector wide recommendations to achieve equality. However, volume of policy interventions and reports has not been matched by academic outputs that co-ordinate, integrate and critically analyse 'race', housing and community. Housing, Race & Community Cohesion is the first systematic overview of 'race', housing and community during this tumultuous period. The material presented is robust and research based but also directly engages with issues around policy and delivery. It is designed to reflect the interests both of the academic research community and policy makers on both sides of the Atlantic. It is not rooted to specific policy interventions that could quickly date but instead focuses on developing new ways to analyse difficult issues that will help both students and practitioners now and in the future.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 1999 in the subject Sociology - Work, Profession, Education, Organisation, grade: Pass, Lancaster University, language: English, abstract: This dissertation discusses the importance of strategic people project management in critical cultural change projects. Appropriate people management in projects is as important as the application of tools and techniques. People make things happen. Their input into the delivery of goals and objectives is essential. These can be achieved by sharing knowledge, good communications and working as one team. I argue that nobody is perfect but a team can be. People in projects really matter. Tools and techniques assist project managers to manage their projects better but they are not a panacea to successful project management. They are simply there to be used as means to assist the project manager to manage his projects better.My approach to strategic people project management proved highly effective to bring together the people elements of this project. Project Managers should familiarise themselves with and adopt the learning outcomes of this dissertation and consider applying these in their projects in future.
