New Dewberry Real Estate Development Resource Books Published

Dr. C. Kat Grimsley, director of the MS Real Estate Development program at George Mason University, was the editor of Development of the Built Environment, one of three real estate development books collectively issued last April as the Land Development Handbook.  The books are issued by the nationally recognized Fairfax-based engineering firm Dewberry with company founder Mr. Sid Dewberry serving as the editor-in-chief for all three books.  The books are published by McGraw-Hill.

Now in its fourth edition, the Land Development Handbook is a widely used reference for design professionals, students, and private and public land developers and was originally published in 1995. The first three editions have sold nearly 40,000 copies to date.

The new edition expands the resource from one book to three, focusing on design, business, and construction. The series includes:

  • Land Development Handbook, 4th Edition
  • Development of the Built Environment 
  • Construction Practices for Land Development 

Each text focuses on a different perspective of the land development process and includes new case studies for both public and private project types. The books were influenced by experts across the country and include contributions by Dewberry employees, other engineering firms, real estate developers, and faculty with George Mason University and Virginia Tech.
