Maciej J. Nowak, Paweł Kreja - Decisions on building conditions and land development as a spatial policy instrument in “Polish metropolises”
The aim of this article is to identify the role played by the decision on building conditions and land use in the development of a group of cities, the so called “Polish metropolises”, that is Gdańsk, Poznań, Kraków, Łódź and Wrocław.

Krzysztof Zima, Edyta Plebankiewicz - The influence of the building shape on the costs of its construction
The choice of a particular architectural solution when designing a building considerably influences the costs of its construction. Generally speaking, the more complex the form of the horizontal projection is, the greater expenditures for the construction must be paid. The article presents the indexes which may relate to the complexity of the building shape and which were then specified and compared on a specific example. For the selected elements of the exemplary building the change in expenditures were analyzed in relation to the degree of shape complexity. Examples of the influence of the building shape on the size of the usable floor area and costs of formwork of the premises were also discussed.
Cezary Tomasz Szyjko - Energy Efficient Stadiums, Euro 2012
Current environmental and climate change concerns clearly illustrate the need to strive towards more resource efficient and eco-innovative production processes. As part of the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production and Sustainable Industrial Policy the European Commission initiated the latest revision of EMAS in order to fully exploit the scheme’s potential for improving the resource efficiency of production processes. Sustainable growth based on a more resource-efficient, greener and more competitive economy is also part of in the EURO 2012 CHAMPIONSHIP.

Dariusz Trojanowski Paweł Kisiel - Price calculation of water supply and sewage networks to be purchased by supply companies - rent capitalization method
Under the conditions of the Polish economic life municipalities tend to, more and more often, transfer the operational management of water supply and sewage networks to companies specially created with that goal in mind. A company performing tasks which have a public utility character has, on the one hand, a typical owner, i.e. the municipality (territorial self-government units such as municipalities should naturally operate as non-profit entities), but, on the other hand, it is a business entity which should operate in a market environment and its management team should make profit-oriented rational and economically justified decisions. The paper is an attempt to indicate the ways of calculating the price which may be applied by utility supplying companies to appropriately set the sales value of water supply and sewage networks built by a “private” investor. Two methods are considered based on the method of discounting cash flows. In the first paper of the series, the authors describe the specific character of the goods offered for sale – that is the water supply and sewage network - and focus their attention on the use of the Net Present Value method for the calculation of the sales price of the network.
