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.

Learning outcomes

Students will acquire knowledge about the preparation and execution of selected construction sub-processes. They will be able to draft project documentation for construction sub-processes connected with basic upper structures, as well as interior and finishing work, and will be trained in assessing preparedness for construction using these processes. Students will learn about the mechanical equipment and mechanisation involved in such processes, and basic occupational safety rules. The monitored outputs of the course consist of prepared technical documentation for selected studied construction sub-processes.


Knowledge of building design principles.


Extending knowledge in field of building construction designing.

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods include field trips to already implemented structures (primarily building structures), with the focus on assembly and interior/finishing work. The tuition also involves the drafting of technical designs for selected construction sub-processes and their presentation during the educational process.

Forms and criteria of assessment

The conditions for course completion are: obligatory seminar attendance, and successfully completed assignments regarding technical documentation concerning construction sub-processes, these assignments being produced to obtain the credit for the subject. The subject is tested by an exam.


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.
