13 weeks, 2 hours/week, compulsory


The aim of the exercise is to practice the standard used for drawing drawings of building parts and presentation of outputs in the design of building construction (floor plan and cross-sections of a non-basement building with 3 floors). Outputs are solved in the form of studies or drawings. 1. Introduction. Standards used to draw drawings of components. Editing drawings and studies. Dimensions and adjustment of drawing sheets. Scales. Lines on building construction drawings. 2. Literary research on a given topic. Familiarization with standard requirements and legislation applicable to administrative buildings, listing of main information in the form of a study. 3. Assignment of the layout of the administrative building, information resulting from the literature search, repetition of the requirements for the building itself and how to draw the study itself. 3. Consultations on the elaboration of a given topic, possible solutions, interventions in existing dispositions. 4. Installation of the object into the terrain - explanation of the construction of the installation, elevation and planimetry of the object, finding the heights necessary for further drawings 5. Design of staircase space, design of the staircase itself, floor plans of individual floors and section of the staircase space 6. Entering the building drawing and drawing according to the valid standards of the ground plan of the floor, the solved object of the administrative building. 7. Entering the building drawing and drawing according to the valid standards of the floor plan 2 NP, solved object of the administrative building 8. Consultation of a given topic, possible ways of solution, explanation of drawing principles and common mistakes. 9. Design of monolithic ceiling structure, orientation design of load-bearing elements, way of drawing and details. 10. Entering the construction drawing and drawing according to the applicable standards of section A-A, the solved object of the administrative building. 11. Assignment of construction drawing and drawing according to valid standards of technical and architectural perspective, solved object of administrative building 12. Enter technical report for the object. 13. Assembly and delivery.
