Building Construction 3 is a newly designed course that, based on the basic knowledge of construction design, only deals with advanced questions of construction (>"HB3"). Sufficiently advanced construction knowledge is absolutely necessary to understand this advanced content.

In the curriculum, the HB3 lecture takes place BEFORE the HB2 VU, the former studio. In terms of content, the knowledge offered in the HB3 lecture is essential for adequate processing of the HB2 VU. We therefore expressly point out that you should attend these courses in the order intended in the curriculum!

Professional and methodical knowledge:

  • Holistic view of the building - from the whole building to the details 
  • Promoting an understanding of the basic principles and fundamental problems of  building construction (water, fire, light, air, egress)
  • Contextual examination and evaluation of details
  • Conveying professional competence with the ability to independently assess detail solutions regarding proper execution and knowledge of appropriate mpovements
  • Demonstration of multiple solutions for a given detailing situation
  • Introduction in the fundamental structure of standards and codes as a basis for independant and critical application
  • Conveying ressource-efficient planning and building to reduce technology dependency - sustainability not as a subsequent technical procedure but as an integral part of the design
  • Communicating current trends and developments, technology and materials

Cognitive and practical abilities:

  • Ability to recognize and understand fundamental problems of building construction as well as to systematical and forward-thinking planing of detailing solutions.
  • Strong relation to realization on the construction site  - knowledge of the processes and the participants in the planning and realization process. Promoting an understanding for the intertwined nature of the work of different crafs and the time schedule on site
  • Critical examination of the position of the architects profession - the architect as a specialist, a generalist or as an uncritical executor of investors' interests.

Social competence, competence to innovate and creativity:

  • Ability to develop innovative concepts following the accepted rules of engineering for building construction and materialisation 
  • Interdisciplinary planning and realization process

Students acquire the skills to correctly apply structural, design and construction principles to create an architectural solution. They are able to arrange materials and substances in accordance with the design and ready for realization to structures and components in building construction and to join them in a way that is appropriate for the material.

A timely registration for the LVA is essential to get access to TUWEL!

Subject of course

The following content is taught in the course: Functional, construction and material-spanning teaching of structural engineering design principles with a focus on the implementation of architectural solutions with special consideration of energy and resource-related aspects; practice-oriented construction and joining principles of wall, ceiling and roof structures; Building physical and structural requirements for the execution of facade and envelope constructions as well as roof and wall-bound building greening; Requirements, basics and application of prefabricated components and building systems; basic construction typologies of temporary and changeable spatial structures

Teaching methods

Due to ongoing restructuring, this lecture is offered this semester in an adapted form based on the principle of "blended learning": The topics of detailing and application are read in detail in face-to-face lectures, while the theoretical part of the lecture series and a repetition of required building construction knowledge are covered by lecture videos for self-study through E-LEarning.

Attending the lectures is strongly recommended. The personal, present participation is demonstrably reflected in a statistically significantly better knowledge transfer and examination rates.
