Course detail

Structures and building techniques

FA-TESAcad. year: 2020/2021

Lectures follow the current trends in deal with sanitary rooms, facilities management, water, elevators and escalators, low-voltage installations, HVAC installations and methods of management buildings. Emphasis is placed on energy efficiency and the impact on the environment and quality of life for building users. The conclusion is presented and explored the concept of energy self-sufficient building.
