Construction: lecture by invited guests from UAB Prefabeta

In 2023, on 28 November, the Faculty of Civil Engineering hosted a lecture for the students of Civil Engineering studies by the representatives of the TERIVA overlay manufacturing company Prefabeta UAB – the company’s director Genadij Janč and the project manager-engineer Rokas Gladkauskas.

In a lecture-seminar, the first and second year full-time students of the Construction and Smart Building Engineering degree programmes were introduced to ribbed beam and block slabs, which consist of lightweight reinforced concrete beams with a spatial steel truss, blocks and monolithic concrete cast on site. The company’s representatives presented the company’s activities, the TERIVA system, discussed the main technical parameters of the slabs, and explained how to easily and quickly install the slabs in new and renovated buildings, where the layout of the building is complicated or where the installation conditions are difficult. The fact that EPS overlays are lighter than traditional overlays was discussed in detail, making them particularly suitable for renovation of cultural heritage buildings, industrial buildings, warehouses, overlapping roofs, etc. The installation of overlays without the need for a complex formwork system or lifting equipment is also discussed. The students had the opportunity to learn about the advantages of such overlays, interesting solutions and completed projects.

The lecture-seminar was organised by Dr Marija Vaičienė, Head of the Department of Civil Engineering.
