With the perspective of different consultants roles, the course deals with different parts of construction planning of which strong emphasis are focused on heating insulation , damp protection, sound insulation, fire protection, installation and selection of material.

The course deals with important subject areas relevant to project work such as: construction technique, building physics/building technique, installation techniques, fire protection, acoustic and preparing drawings. The course also constitutes working with technical choices in planning.

The pedagogical idea and the overall goal for the course is to expose students on the insight and understanding of construction industry working conditions by working on project work that is linked to an actual live project in the region. Work is performed with the help of different type of authorities and industries contact. Students are guided through the whole construction process and work on their own with different working elements that occurs throughout the construction phase from inception till completion. This exposes the students on the actual working environment. Guest lectures and external cooperation is part of the project work.

Lectures, exercises and course material support the ongoing case work and relate to the detail parts in general. Great emphasis lies in the integration of education of anoverall view of the detailed parts. The course deals with standard and determined associated to the detailed parts.
