Given that the property development industry is one of the major leading industries in the world today, it is surprising how limited the availability of relevant property development text and
expertise is. This study, called Residential Property Development: A Framework for Successful Developments, contributes to the lack of available text in three ways. The first contribution is the
literature review that culminates substantial property development information into a single document. The second contribution is the property development framework for developers, which
defines the crucial routes to developing successful property developments. The third contribution is the empirical study which illustrates the structured and sequential process of property development on a project of a property development company, E.T Construction. This study consists of various techniques which serve as a road map, action plan and tool for the successful development of a residential property and will ensure that all relevant aspects and alternatives are covered during the process of property development.
