Learning outcomes of the course unit

Student will be able to elaborate a project documentation for design sanitation of the building including constuctively-hygric exploration and biotic exploration. Student is also able to accomplish proposal method for sanitation of the building in relation to realized facts.

Prerequisites

Building-physical relation of water transfer in building contruction, building construction theory, mechanical endurance and stability of building construction, drawing building construction by valid rules.

Co-requisites

Basic knowledge from subjects building construction, physics relating to construction, load-bearing construction and structural mechanics.
