In March and April of 2019 we hosted the group of thirteen students from Tehnička škola Slavonski Brod in Croatia. Students had a great opportunity to learn about how to create an ecological brick from adobe – natural material, how to read and interpret building plans, to make the measurements necessary for the project to be undertaken, to plan and distribute the walls, to choose the most appropriated material for each part of the building, to use the construction tools, to take measures taking into account the building plans and to prepare the main bio/recyclable material to start to build.
After that practice, trainee is able to: start up and carry out a construction project, to understand the importance of being coordinated with all builders in the construction team, to understand the importance of the environmental friendship by using of biomaterials in construction, is able to analyse the properties of the used materials and determine the environmental impact, plan the construction tasks taking into account the project to be undertaken, manage and supervise the construction project etc.
Apart from the bioconstruction practice, they went on various trips, like to Granada and Malaga. They were hosted by the host families – they made new relations with the local people.
They took part in interesting activities like Language and cultural exchange or the Bowling afternoon. The group got to know Ubeda and its rich architecture quite well, as they were living here for three weeks.
