The session “Basics of Building Construction, part 1” that is designed as a pure series of lectures includes the idea of constructive connections and detail solutions that are usually to be found with building construction projects. All relevant construction basics about the individual components of a building (from the foundation up to the roof) are handled by means of practical examples.
The session “Basics of Building Construction, part 2” that is also designed as a pure series of lectures includes the idea of basic connections of heat, humidity, sound and fire protection that are explained by means of simple examples in addition to typical building constructions. In this connection, reference is also made to materials and their physical behavior.
