This paper presents and discusses the results and work carried out in a feasibility study, in cooperation with Swedish companies and a Japanese company to evaluate the possibility to introduce and adapt a new building system in Europe. The system is a column-beam systems developed in Japan and have been analyzed and evaluated in this project regarding to European conditions. The work carried out for about 18 months starting in June 2008 and finishing in 2010. The choice of the building system is determined by both performance and economy. The build system has a potential for various construction projects and has numerous advantages. The system flexibility should be increased to meet other types of construction and thereby increase its market potential. Each building is a unique object, so there is no pre-given solution what system is the best in each case.
