Real Estate Development includes activities like the renovation of existing structures (brownfield) and the development of structures on land banks (greenfield). Development is the pre-construction phase, ranging from the purchase of lands, conducting studies on how best to develop the land and/or type of assets, sourcing planning, and permits, and conducting master the plan and design. The development stage of a project requires the expertise of different professions including Civil Engineers, Architects, Planners and many more.
