—The increase of population in major cities led to the rise in housing need. In line with the growth of the city, the available land in urban areas increasingly limited and expensive. Construction of flats is one solution to meet the housing needs. In practice, many conventional construction methods require lumber for formwork and scaffolding. Excessive consumption of wood has shown to reduce forest cover and damage the environment, which is negatively affecting human life. This paper examines the precast method as an alternative system that can be used. Object of research is done on the construction of flats in the city of Batam, Bantul and Bandung. Result of the discussion suggests that the prefabricated system can save the use of wood, reduce the cost of construction, maintain the environment and also contribute to the green building.
