Course abstract

Goal of the course is to teach about labour work organization methods, technological maps of work sequence, labour-consuming characters, construction site layouts. Also this course provide knowledge at rational material and technical resource planning, optimal selection of devices and mechanisms for the main construction works, warehousing, temporary buildings and roads, energy solutions (services), appropriate building technology choices based on technical and economiccal culation sofrational construction machinery.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

After the course studies the student knows the theoretical and practical knowledge about the legislation in the field of construction, construction regulations; construction work processes, technology, construction work planning, organization and management on the construction site. Is able to develop a project of organization (performance) of construction works (calendar plan of construction works, general plan of construction works, technological scheme of construction works and quality assurance plan) and knows the acquired skills in organization of construction works on construction sites. Able to develop a project for the performance of planning and management of the construction process and comply with the technology for the performance of work in accordance with construction standards, prepare and complete executive documentation, as well as determine labor protection measures. Able to monitor the construction process, know the technical and quality control of the work performed. Knows the accounting of completed work, is able to check the covered work and is able to control the executive documentation.
Evaluation of results in the form of a test.

Requirements for awarding credit points

At the end of the study course, the student must pass a test with a mark. Test - independent individual work in the classroom, where the student develops a technological map for the types of construction work considered in the program, calculates the workload, compiles a calendar time schedule, including the load schedule of construction workers and construction machines.

Description of the organization and tasks of students’ independent work

Independently gets acquainted with the construction legislation applicable in Latvia, as well as with the application of State standards regarding the quality of construction works, studies the latest books, periodicals and Internet resources.

Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

The student is able to prove the acquired knowledge and skills about the issues discussed in the course program (by answering control questions). Distribution of course evaluation: tests 60%; homework 40%.
