—Construction of buildings always spend substantial funds because of high construction costs and so we need a way to save on construction costs without lowering the specifications of the building itself. The study was conducted to determine the efficiency of the construction cost using precast method to the conventional method. It is intended that funds are available to build more buildings. The calculation of the cost of construction of precast units refer to SNI 9832-2012 (SNI 9832-2012, "Calculation Procedure Unit Price Work Precast Concrete Building Construction"). In this study, which reviewed the building is 3-10 storey building in Jakarta and Papua. Which large computation efficiency in terms of both structural components with foundation and without foundation. Based on calculations using precast method is then compared with the results obtained by the conventional method that precast method can reduce the cost of construction and the method of precast become more efficient. In Jakarta and Papua without foundation structure results obtained cost efficiency in 3-10 buildings storey of 7.6% -19.8%. And with foundation structure results obtained cost efficiency in buildings 3-10 storey buildings of 4.7% -15.05%.
