The course is focused on certain building types in the field of building design and special requirements put onto the structures of those building. Students are to learn about garages and parking places, single storey buildings, chosen commercial and agricultural buildings, and at last also about wooden houses. Students are to receive knowledge regarding architectural, typological and structural viewpoints of previously mentioned building types.

Learning outcomes

The subject is focused on acquainting with selected specialized structures and constructions in the field of building construction. The student will gain knowledge about the possibilities of designing garages, selected public and agricultural buildings. Students will also get a basic overview of the possibilities of solutions based on wood. The student should learn the principles of architectural, typological and structural solution of the above-mentioned selected constructions.
Learning outcomes of the course unit The aim of the subject is to acquire the knowledge and the latest knowledge in the field of building construction, in the complex of interrelations between the structural components of the construction and the requirements imposed on them. This is especially the so-called PSV work, with a link to the used material, element or product, always with regard to its required functional properties and constructional physical connections when it is incorporated into other structures of the building with respect to the trouble-free operation of buildings.
Accepting and accepting conceptual work while adhering to the requirements of legal regulations, standards and respecting the technological regulations of PSP work.
Introducing students with examples of impeccable design and execution from a real building process.


The Students will use the acquired knowledge in building physics (thermal engineering, acoustics and daylighting inside buildings), fire safety of buildings and civil engineering, acquired by completing the prescribed courses in previous studies.
In the course of study the student will use of knowledge of the subject Design Detail and Modern Building Materials.


Student will use in the study of knowledge from the subject Design detail and Modern building materials.

Planned educational activities and teaching methods

The subject is taught in the form of lectures and exercises. In the lectures, students will be introduced to the requirements of applicable laws, decrees, regulations and standards in the area of building design as well as principles of technical regulations of manufacturers. In the exercise, they will process the protocols, drawings and reports of the model calculation and verification in the specified area, including an assessment and description of a specific measure that ensures compliance w

Forms and criteria of assessment

Credit awarding criteria include attendance, standard of elaboration of protocols, drawings and reports. The test will consist of written and oral part and the condition and is to achieve more than a half of the number of points.
