Building Constructions C / Innovative Building Constructions

the seminar imparts expertise on the interplay of construction elements in buildings for extreme demands and strains (extreme climatic conditions, high loads, extreme position and assembly conditions, exeptional building dimensions and span of the load bearing structure, complex shapes, special material applications, etc.) Acrucial criterion for innovative building constructions is efficiency (optimal relationship between expenditor and benefit). In particular, an awareness ist to be created for the interplay between the selection of material and technology and the shape of the building parts as a whole.
