Abstract: For discrete groups $ \Gamma $ with a bound on the order of their finite subgroups, we construct Bredon projective resolutions of the trivial module in terms of projective covers of the chain complex associated to the poset of finite subgroups. We use this to give new results on dimensions of $ \underline {\operatorname {E}}\Gamma $ and to reprove that for virtually solvable groups, $ \underline {\mathrm {cd}}\Gamma =\mathrm {vcd}\Gamma $. We also deduce a formula to compute the equivariant Euler class of $ \underline {\operatorname {E}}\Gamma $ for $ \Gamma $ virtually solvable of type $ \mathrm {FP}_\infty $ and use it to compute orbifold Euler characteristics.
