Learning objectives
Introducing students with basic functional elements and materializing of construction system and envelope of masonry/solid of buildings. In the course of teaching, a masonry system of the building is processed and individually each elements of building are processed. They design constructions that are simple, easy to understand and can begin empirically explain to beginners without applying a static calculation that students do not yet know. The structure/system of the building is divided into components: foundations, insulation from underground moisture and water, walls (facade and interior, partition and constructive), ceilings, flat roofs, windows and doors.
Learning outcomes
Prior to coming to the exercise, students need to get to know the problem that is being addressed in the exercises, through attendance at lectures and studying the recommended literature. After completing this course, students will be able to project simple masonry constructive systems and details of basic structural elements, such as: foundations, walls, floor structures, flat roofs, as well as windows and doors without the application of static calculation, approximation calculations.
Elements of the building - terminology, construction systems. Buildings with masonry construction, function of elements of construction. Excavations for buildings with and without basement; Building ground; Classification of the foundations, Isolation of the underground moisture of a building without and with basement. Isolation of basement from groundwater; Walls - classification and function, Brick and block walls, Concrete blocks; Walls of broken stone; Facade walls, flat roofs, drainage principles; Covering flat roofs, floor ceilings-classification, function; reinforced concrete cast ceilings, semi-assembly and prefabricated reinforced concrete ceilings; Hollow ceilings with hollow blocks, Openings in walls; Windows - function, classification, materials, windows - construction, installation, glazing, curtains. Doors - classification, construction, installation, wing construction, exterior doors. Floors - function, classification, construction

Evaluation and grading
- 5 independent graphic works, including the student`s activity in the class, are scored in total with a maximum of 50 points (maximum 10 points for each graphic work), - the exam is rated with a maximum of 50 points A passing grade is obtained if you collectively accumulate up to 51 points -  Attendance continued at least 80%, performed and rated graphic works (total of 5 graphic works with max. 50 points), cumulatively rated with minimum 51% of max. number of points (ie 25.5 points from 5 graphic works). A student who is unjustifiably absent from teaching more than 20% and does not pass at exercises, min. 25.5 points, must renew the listening of the subject.
Specific remarks
Exercises take place in groups. Before the start of each exercise, students are provided with a detailed program for each graphic work, the content of the graphic work, and the conditions and deadlines for receiving graphic works.
