COURSE
BUILDING FACILITIES (051)

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Building services have a very important role in every kind of building; thus, its learning is vital during the training of an architect. Thinking architecture without considering installations would mean the failure of a project; that is why the main target of the subject Building Facilities is to form the students both in design and calculation aspects, so they achieve the necessary knowledge to succeed during their professional activity.

From a teaching point of view it is indispensable not to focus only in a theoretical area, but to complement it with the self- investigation of the student, and especially with the solving of exercises that relate the achieved knowledge with the reality of professional activity, and therefore helping to secure the rote knowledge. Consequently, during the year the students will apply their theoretical knowledge to practical cases, proposing, designing and calculating different kinds of building services, selecting the necessary systems, materials and products to satisfy the current technical regulations.
