This subject introduces all major building construction components (walls, foundations, floors, roofs, skeleton frames, stairs, ramps, doors and windows) and primary building engineering service systems. During lectures, the building is considered as a composition of spaces with different functions, separated by special surfaces. The course aims to introduce and explain the grammar of architectural design through practical tasks, such as the survey of one’s own flat. Concurrently, the basic dependant factors of the creative design process are described. Students are acquanted with technical terminology as well as the role and use of various construction solutions including their classifications. The above shall assist students with both starting independent design exercise work and the continuing of building construction studies in greater detail.

Walls: Effects on walls, and how to fulfil the requirements. Sorting the walls by function, position, material, by layer-order. Walls built from elements, the development of walling elements. Floors: Functions, effects on floors, how to fulfil the requirements. Elements of floor construction.   Types: plain floors (in details), arches (overview). The materials, construction lines, building methods, About the future of floors Joints between walls – floors, skeleton frames – floors. Methodology of the floor design. Stairs: Functions, effects on staires, how to fulfil the requirements, principles of stressing and how to choose construction. Sorting the constructions by material, load bearing method, building method … etc. Design possibilities.

The subject deals mainly with pitched roof constructions, roof coverings and different types of foundations – the latter with consideration to waterproofing solutions. During seminar lectures the  principles and details of shallow and deep foundations are introduced, according to functional and load bearing requirements of various building constructions as well as subsurface water and soil type effects. Also introduced are the functions and primary principles of different pitched roof constructions such as: traditional roof, rafter type (modern) roof, purlin and truss type roof as well as contemporary methods of carpentry. Further explanation is provided on occupied (built-in) attic constructions with focus on principles, layers, ventilation, windows and lighting. The main types of roof coverings are shown, such as concrete and clay tiles, flashings and metal roof coverings with special attention to principles and details.

General and detailed review of the structures of the elevation constructions. The most important aim of the subject is the analysis of the external separating constructions. Principles of the continuity of the protecting levels depending on the position in the structure. Multi-layer external separating walls, construction methods of the elevation claddings and elevation coverings, the ordinary and special external doors and windows. Complementary structures for the external doors and windows, especially the shading devices. Requirements for the external separating structures and performances of the different constructions. Building physics: heat and vapour physics, acoustic features of the external separating structures.

Topics: This subject is about the efficient structural design methods of the load bearing systems built by silicate (r.c.) pre-cast big block or built with monolithic industrial techniques and its special additional structures. Procedures for structural design. Energetic, vapour protecting, acoustical, fire protecting aspects of the design and its legal background. Modular planning, rules of the synthesis, structural connections. Monolithic and pre-cast wall and frame structures. Special foundation and isolation techniques, deep foundations. Pre-cast r.c. facade elements. Pre-cast r.c. stairs. Solutions for structural dilatation gaps. Placing water supply and sewerage system pipes. Aim is showing the structural set-up of the entire building.

This subject introduces the students to the precast reinforced concrete, steel and the timber load bearing construction systems of the big span halls and their special additional structures by a system- and performance-based approach. Details both of heavy elevation and roof slab structures made of prefabricated r.c. sandwich panels and lightweight external constructions are presented. Specific flooring, big size doors and partitions of industrial and commercial halls are shown.
 
It is also an objective to present the special construction rules and the service system aspects of the buildings of lightweight system and their particularities in the terms of building physics and fire protection.
 
Additional information is presented about multilevel pre-cast r.c. skeleton frames, its typical technical details and the structural solutions of mass produced blocked and panel load bearing systems in case of residential buildings.
 
The main object of the course is to explain the constructions of one storey high big span halls. Students practice knowledge transmitted during the presentations and workshops in their semester projects on basis of the whole complexity of previous studies.

The goal of the subject to introduce the building methods and the presentation of their validation possibilities. Today,  the social, environmental and energy crisis in Central Europe as well is forcing to take into account the requirements of sustainability. The task of the subject the description of the sustainable construction methods, of the technical means, "gentle techniques" and  presentation of specific structural systems having preserve and utilize of the existing values  and environmentally conscious design and facility management of new buildings.   The aim is to educate architects who are able to comprehensively, the ecological, social, value-defense, engineering, energy, economic, aesthetic considerations are also taken into account and finding and accepting reasonable compromise, adopting individual decisions.
