Reconstruction Technologies

FAST-NWA028Acad. year: 2020/2021

Performance of structural investigations from the construction technology perspective, technical documentation of buildings and design of technical procedures used in reconstruction work with regards to the results of investigations, the rehabilitation of foundations from the perspective of their load-bearing capacity, removal of moisture from structures, rehabilitation and reinforcement of load-bearing vertical and horizontal structures, reconstruction of wooden trussing, concrete panel buildings, the most frequently used methods and their economic evaluation, reconstruction of heritage structures and the most frequent risk factors during the design of technical procedures, examples of executed reconstructions presented via photographs of executed construction work and a field trip to a construction site where reconstruction is ongoing.
