Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to introduce students to low-energy and environmentally oriented construction. Introductory classes will focus on legislation and energy performance of buildings. The course also looks at specific materials with a low carbon footprint. The course will not explicitly focus only on biomaterials, from a sustainability perspective it is necessary to combine modern synthetic materials with purely eco-friendly ones. The aim of the course is for students to be able to appropriately combine modern materials with purely natural ones, to be able to minimise the negative environmental impact of the construction industry, and to be able to create a pleasant interior with a healthy microclimate. Last but not least, to assess materials in terms of their entire life cycle, i.e. production, maintenance and subsequent disposal or better recycling.

Requirements:

None
