Course detail

Construction Project Planning

FAST-NWA014Acad. year: 2023/2024

The subject analyses and explains the necessity of construction technology planning, their classification and the connections between them. It deals with methods of processing construction technology planning documentation and its content at the investment stage of a construction project and during preparations for building production. It contains the principles governing the creation of a budget for a construction project and the use of BIM technologies for the preparation and management of construction execution.

Institute of Technology, Mechanisation and Construction Management (TST)

Entry knowledge

Students are required to have a basic understanding of the planning of construction execution and a basic knowledge of engineering economics. The topic taught is also linked to knowledge from the area of the mechanical equipment and techniques used in construction sub-processes and building execution.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

Extent and forms are specified by guarantor’s regulation updated for every academic year.


The objective of course is to make the students acquainted with the principles of building- technological preparation and to learn them to elaborate its basic documentation. The students obtain knowledge in the area of building-technological planning, resulting in the knowledge how to elaborate the documents for the construction preparation and realization especially from the point of view of the building contractor.
The students will master the objective of the Construction Technology Planning (R )course, they become acquainted with fundamentals of the construction technology preparation and they learn elaboration of the respective basic documents.
