Technology of Constructions 2
FAST-BWA003Acad. year: 2020/2021
The subject follows on from Technology of Constructions 1 and covers the area of building processes, linked with the erection of constructions, interior and finishing work. Principles of the manufacturing, transportation and storage of prefabricated components. Preparedness of the construction site for assembly. Procedures used in the assembly of reinforced concrete and steel structures. Issues connected with interior and finishing processes, principles governing their performance, sequence of activities, preparedness for construction at the place of work, mutual relationships and their coordination. Quality and safety requirements, and requirements with regard to the environment.
