Mr Johnny Siu FRICS FHKIS MBA (HKU)
What makes a property development successful? Who is involved and how were stakeholders’
expectations managed? Will the building stand the test of time? To answer these questions and
create a successful development strategy, professionals need to understand the fundamentals of the
development process, from initial concepts to making decisions for the built scheme. Property
Development Strategies deal with critical issues that impact the decision process, including site
appraisal, planning, development appraisal and development finance. Participants will be guided to:
• Identify fundamentals in the development process and valuation of development land
• Manage the development process prior to the construction phase, either as an agent, advisor
or as a developer
• Recognise the interactions between issues at different stages of the development
• Assess methods of valuing development land and when certain appraisals are used
• Recognise different methodologies for the assessment of project and manage financial risk
• Analyse types of development finance and how they can be accounted for in the valuation
