Course detail

Technology of Constructions

FAST-AW051Acad. year: 2020/2021

Technology of constructions is dealing with research, development, modelling and implementation of production processes in civil engineering. The objective is an optimum and economic manner of the execution of building structures, buildings and their complexes.
The course covers introduction into the branch of the technology of constructions, division of construction processes, their technology, spatial and time structure and optimisation of their course. In addition the students are acquainted with preparation and realisation phase of the investment process, from the letter of intent up to the passing over of a completed building into operation.
