Prerequisites for registration:
Assesment methods :
Credit: essay (semestral project).

To obtain a trial and must be obtained at least 93 points for the evaluation of at least 86 points B, C rating on at least 79 points for the evaluation of at least 72 points D and E on the evaluation of at least 64 points. Student receives credit for the subject in the case of evaluation mark from A to E.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
After completion of the subject the student can then receive and apply knowledge about technical and technological possibilities of the relief adjustments, earthworks and cubature method of determining the earthworks as well as proposals for the implementation machinery earthworks, which can be used in concrete project for landscape architecture and landscape engineering purposes.
Course contents:
Capital construction and its participants. Building Act. The role of government in the construction. Documentation of buildings. Characteristics of soils and their classification. Engineering-geological survey and its role in the construction. Earthwork in excavation - the basic concepts. Preparatory earthworks - demarcation work, removal of vegetation, removal of stones and boulders, removal of old buildings, stripping humus layer, clipping off the sod, setting up stages in soil embankments, soil scarification, setting up the site. The other earthworks - construction site dewatering, excavation sheeting. General earthworks - disconnection and extraction of soil (excavation execution) moving and transport sediments, storage and installation of earth (creating mounds) of soil compaction. Finishing work - security, maintenance and repair of earth structures, earth fault structures. Mechanization of earthworks - machine performance data, design mechanisms for construction work; means of mechanization division (earth-moving machines, machines for transport). Metering equipment and devices used in earthworks. Profiles - longitudinal profile, characterized by cross sections, alignment design. Determination of cubature earth dust (methods). Distribution of materials - transverse and longitudinal transport in the implementation of earthworks.
