13 weeks, 2 hours/week, compulsory


1.- 2. Earthworks, measurements and demarcation of structures, procedures for earthwork execution, management of excavation work, time schedule. 3. Graphical representation of the earthwork processes, selection of machinery for earthworks, techniques used in working with selected machines, scheme for the movement of machinery on the construction site. 4.- 5. Formwork, reinforcement and concreting of monolithic reinforced concrete structures. Design of formwork systems for monolithic structures, installation process. Listing of elements, drafting of parts of wall and ceiling formwork, formwork details. 6. Procedure for executing the concreting of a monolithic structure, selection of suitable machinery, time schedule, scheme for the transportation of concrete mixture and its placement in formwork. 7. Wall construction. Creation of comprehensive technical documentation for the execution of an assigned brick structure, including calculations and a list of necessary materials. 8. Procedure for the execution of wall construction for one storey of a studied structure. Machinery, devices and tools used in wall construction. 9. Time schedule for the construction of walls for one storey of a structure, graphical representation of the wall construction process for one storey. 10-12. Alternatively (always in the form of technological regulation): Assembly of wooden structures – execution of roof trusses or wooden buildings. Construction of enclosing shells or roof cladding. Installation of small unit roof coverings. Performance of metalworking on roofs, including sheet metal roof coverings. 13. Assessment of completed assignments, defence of proposed solutions, credit.
