Reconstruction Technologies

FAST-CW024Acad. year: 2018/2019

Performance of structural investigations from the construction technology perspective, technical documentation of buildings and design of technical procedures used in reconstruction work with regards to the results of investigations, the rehabilitation of foundations from the perspective of their load-bearing capacity, removal of moisture from structures, rehabilitation and reinforcement of load-bearing vertical and horizontal structures, reconstruction of wooden trussing, concrete panel buildings, the most frequently used methods and their economic evaluation, reconstruction of heritage structures and the most frequent risk factors during the design of technical procedures, examples of executed reconstructions presented via photographs of executed construction work and a field trip to a construction site where reconstruction is ongoing.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will gain knowledge about the methods of conducting technical investigations into buildings and producing relevant documentation. They will gain knowledge about the reconstruction of selected parts of buildings. They will gain knowledge about the methods and options for the reconstruction of buildings fabricated from concrete panels. They will gain information about the procedures employed during the reconstruction of structures protected as part of cultural heritage and about the building materials used in historic buildings. They will be able to perform costing for the reconstruction, repair and maintenance of buildings.

Prerequisites

KKnowledge about the technologies used in the construction of new buildings is expected, as well as basic knowledge regarding the statics of building structures, properties of building materials and the creation of a budget for the construction of a new building.

Co-requisites

Expansion of knowledge about the technologies involved in construction processes and the properties of building materials.

Recommended optional programme components
