AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course deals with the theoretical and operational tools related to the economic and financial sustainability assessment of interventions on built heritage at the construction and urban scale.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Attendance and participation in theoretical lessons and exercises will allow the student to:
• recognize what are the costs and benefits related to a real estate investment project (new building intervention or recovery/renovation)
• estimate, through the appropriate methodologies, the costs and benefits over time deriving from the real estate investment;
• evaluate the economic and financial feasibility of the investment also for the purpose of selecting the best alternative option;
• recognize and evaluate the effects produced by the main project variables on the economic and financial feasibility of a building intervention;
• draw up an economic-financial feasibility report relating to the real estate investment building project assigned as a case study by the teacher or proposed by the student.

TEACHING METHODS

The module is divided into lectures on theoretical and operational tools for assessing the economic feasibility of interventions and classroom exercises; student attendance is recommended.

For the purpose of the exam, each student will have to develop and deliver the Cost-Benefit Analysis of the case study assigned by the teacher or proposed by the student.

Working students and students with certification of SLD, disability or other educational needs special to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to agree teaching and examination methods that, in compliance with the objectives teaching, take into account learning methods individual.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The module is divided into two parts.

The first part will deal with the theoretical tools for estimating the costs and benefits deriving from the building intervention with particular reference to the characteristics of the real estate market, the types of investors, the financial mathematics tools useful for evaluating the costs and benefits in the time.

The second part of the module will deal with the Cost-Benefit Analysis technique from a private perspective and the main indicators for evaluating the economic and financial sustainability of real estate investments, in particular: Economic and financial Net present Value (NPV); economic and financial Internal Rate of Return (IRR).

An example of an economic-financial evaluation of a building intervention will then be developed through the application of a Cost-Benefit Analysis and presented the case study on which students will have to develop a similar evaluation.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam is in written form and consists of a test with four questions (open questions or calculation exercises) relating to the topics covered in the module.

The duration of the test is 2 hours.

There will be 3 sessions in the summer session and 3 in the winter session.

To access the exam, the student must deliver the tutorial on the Cost-Benefit Analysis of a real estate investment assigned by the teacher or proposed by the student.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The exam will verify the student's acquisition of the methodologies for assessing the economic and financial feasibility of building interventions.

The overall evaluation of the module will take into account both the results of the written test and the exercises developed individually by the students.

In particular, the student must demonstrate that:

  • recognize the costs and benefits deriving from a building intervention (new construction, renovation, etc.);
  • knowing how to estimate the costs and benefits deriving from the building intervention;
  • knowing how to apply the evaluation tools (Cost-Benefit Analysis) to verify the economic and financial sustainability of a building intervention;
  • knowing how to identify and evaluate the main variables that affect the economic and financial feasibility of a building intervention.
