FA-TZ1CompulsoryBachelor's (1st cycle)Acad. year: 2010/2011Winter semester3. year of study4  credits

The subject "Technical installation in buildings" (hereinafter TZB) synthesises a series of technical disciplines. Classes and seminars are focussed primarily on conceptual problems and on the linkage of technical installations to the building as a whole. Emphasis is put especially on interior fittings, the knowledge of which is essential for the future architect's successful co-operation with specialists. The classes in Part I TIB include water, gas and power supply of buildings, waste management, sewers and waste water disposal, with view to environment . The aim is to provide the students with a comprehensive knowledge of technical installations in buildings, which make an integral part of public, residential, industrial and agricultural buildings, and may be applied with creativity in architectural design.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

After successfully passing the subject "Utility facilities in buildings", the student will have a synoptic idea of the proportion of utility facilities in buildings, in particular as regards sanitary facilities and electrical equipment. He will be able to make use of the gained knowledge in the architectural and interior design of buildings.

Mode of delivery

90 % face-to-face, 10 % distance learning


The student is expected to know the basics of typology, in particular of the sanitary rooms of buildings, the basics of building design, and to be able to make simplified drawings of incorporation of utility facilities into buildings.

The aim is to gain synoptic view of utility facilities in buildings, primarily sanitary facilities and electrical equipment that make an integral part of public, residential, industrial and agricultural buildings. The knowledge gained can be made use of in studio design and other creative studio work.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Tutorials are continuously monitored, the progress of the semestral work is corrected twice a semester, in the scheduled weeks of teaching. Missed lessons will be made up for in form of an individually assigned substitutive program.
