Excursion
We attended Bravo-M furniture factory. We looked at machine tools, materials, fittings and technologies of furniture production
Legal requirements
There should be no less than 6 square meters per person in dormitory. The families should live in isolated rooms.
Analysis of planning decisions:
Block-type Dorm and Corridor-type Dorm
The options for furniture placement
