Technology of Constructions 1

FAST-BW001Acad. year: 2019/2020

General foundation in the scientific field of the technology of constructions , analysis and principles of preparing construction sub-processes, principles of creating design projects for processes.
Construction sub-processes connected in particular with the main construction of building structures.
Principles of the staking out of buildings and built structures, principles of technological approaches and relationships during the performance of the technical stages of earthwork, basic lower structures, basic upper structures and the outer envelopes of buildings. Solution of the technological, spatial and temporal structures of construction processes, sequence of activities, level of preparedness of a workplace for construction, mutual dependencies and requirements concerning quality and safety – also with regard to the environment.
