    Precast elements have been used for decades in the building industry. Main reason for this are reduction in price, reduction in erection time, and increase of the quality as production in factories often reduce the possibility of faults. Since the beginning of the 70's, we have in Denmark made several attempts to change from large panel buildings into systems which allow much more flexibility in the use of the building including changes during the lifetime of the building. Column/beam/slab building systems have been introduced, but the flexibility is still limited. Column/slab building systems are preferred, but due to transportation and lift capacities on the site, the size of the slab elements is limited. A building system with great distance between columns, reasonable sizes of slab elements and great possibilities for the architect to form the façade lines, would be a step forward for the building industry. The Building Department of the Education Ministry has initiated such a development, and very simple building systems will be used for the next building complex at Aalborg University. The partners who did the development for the Building Department, are Carl Bro Group, Dall & Lindhardtsen and Aalborg University.
