Course detail

Technology of Constructions 1

FAST-BWA002Acad. year: 2023/2024

General foundation in the scientific field of the technology of constructions , analysis and principles of preparing construction sub-processes, principles of creating design projects for processes.
Construction sub-processes connected in particular with the main construction of building structures.
Principles of the staking out of buildings and built structures, principles of technological approaches and relationships during the performance of the technical stages of earthwork, basic lower structures, basic upper structures and the outer envelopes of buildings. Solution of the technological, spatial and temporal structures of construction processes, sequence of activities, level of preparedness of a workplace for construction, mutual dependencies and requirements concerning quality and safety – also with regard to the environment.

Institute of Technology, Mechanisation and Construction Management (TST)

Offered to foreign students

Of all faculties

Entry knowledge

Knowledge of building design principles.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

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


The course objective is to teach the students to make a technological regulation of the selected partial construction processes of rough construction and finishing works and to be able to use these elaborated documents in practice for the construction execution.
By mastering the objectives of the Technology of Constructions course II the students acquire principal knowledge of partial technology stages of the building operations process, in particular of some carcass superstructure processes and interior and finishing processes.
