Course detail

Technology of Constructions I

FAST-TW01Acad. year: 2019/2020

The task of the construction engineering is not only to plan the building correctly but also to execute it in high quality and reasonably. The topic of construction execution is part of the Construction Technology field. The technology deals with methods and procedures of an optimum building process execution. In order to be modeled technologically, time-wise and in resource aspects, optimized and successfully controlled, the processes must be studied first.
The course includes the study of the construction processes connected with the primary construction production. This means construction demarcation, technological regulation process and connection during the individual technological stages of earthworks, superstructure and subgrade construction and facing mythe. They solve its technological, spatial and time structures, sequence, workplace preparation, mutual continuation, duality and environmental requirements.

Principles of placing of reinforcement into casing, covering of reinforcement by concrete. 6. Concrete mixing processes. Production, haulage, deposit and treatment of fresh concrete. Hardening control, principles of casing removal. Technology breaks.
7. Masonry processes. Principles of execution of walling of bricks, shaped bricks and stone. Principle rules of the walling bonds. Module, technology and quality requirements. Organisational and time structure.
8. Assembly of timber structures and buildings. Execution of classical and new trusses, glued timber structures and their assembly.
9.Timber buildings, principles of production and assembly. Quality requirements.
10. Erection of enclosing shells and roof claddings. Assembly principles and procedures of silicate sandwich, small unit and metal-plastic claddings.
11. Installation of small unit coverings, quality inspection.
12. Execution of roof plumber works incl. metal coverings and on the house façade. Readiness of construction, sequence of processes, fixing and joining, quality requirements.
13. Working and protective scaffoldings. Types, division. Working procedures and assembly principles for segment, element and spatial scaffoldings. Scaffolding design, static assessment, stability and safety measures.


The main objective of the course is to teach the students to apply the individual selected processes for superstructure and subgrade construction in practice and to solve specific problems on practical models. The course deals with the methods and optimal creation of selected production processes. That includes the study of construction processes connected primarily with the constructional operations. That means demarcation of the constructed buildings, principles of the technology processes regulations and connection during the execution of the earthworks technology stage, superstructure and subgrade construction and the facing mythe. The students will elaborate the technological, spatial and time structure, sequence, construction site preparation, mutual continuity and duality and environmental requirements.
