Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The foundation of the building at present has to include a wide range of knowledge from the area of the structure of the lower structure and the connection to the underlying rock massif. The trend of setting up objects on less suitable or unsuitable base soil is clearly evident in urbanly developed countries and cities. The aim of this course is to offer an unconventional view of new procedures in the field of building establishment and possibilities of elimination of unfavorable subsoil for the life of the building.

Summary

The foundation of the building at present has to include a wide range of knowledge from the area of the structure of the lower structure and the connection to the underlying rock massif. The trend of setting up objects on less suitable or unsuitable base soil is clearly evident in urbanly developed countries and cities. The aim of this course is to offer an unconventional view of new procedures in the field of building establishment and possibilities of elimination of unfavorable subsoil for the life of the building.
