The primary scope of this thesis is a conceptual design implementation for a new building systems approach. This system is based on a standardized, economically feasible and widely used prefabricated structural component. The type in question is a precast, prestressed, hollow-core concrete slab, extending its use from its current application in floor and roof decks to load - bearing wall panels. The system incorporates three additional structural members in order to perform autonomously: continuous prefabricated reinforced concrete beams, high - strength steel bolts and prefabricated reinforced concrete support panels. Its application, though primarily directed towards the housing industry, can be utilized in the commercial and industrial areas as well.
