In the period from the second half of the 19th century by 1960, more than 250 thousand of two- to five-story brick apartment (mainly rental) houses in traditional brick technology were constructed in the Czech Republic.

Brick buildings from this period were built according to regulations, building codes and laws from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. Multi-storey brick tenement houses do not meet the current thermal, acoustic and other requirements, the requirements of a dynamically developing society to the required extent, and in many cases require regeneration and modernization interventions, including the replacement of non-compliant and out-of-date structures and equipment enabling their further use. The course is focused on the current issue of renewal, reconstruction and modernization of brick multi-storey rental apartment buildings, on historical structures and materials, the issue of degradation and aging of structures and materials of historic brick residential buildings, their residual life, failures and reconstruction of historical buildings and their parts. Furthermore, the course is focused on the issue of improving the well-being of the internal environment, the replacement of finishing structures, opening fillings, etc. as an integral part of the modernization of these buildings.
