Recently more extensive use of precast/prestressed concrete components, which are fabricated off-site and then connected on-site, has been taking place in Indonesia. This technology becomes more popular in Indonesia since it shows significant benefits compared to the conventional poured on site concrete technology. Among others, the benefits are in accelerating the construction time, enhancing the quality of concrete works, improving its durability and in general generating competitive structural cost. In view of the fact that Indonesia is located in a region with high-seismic risks, implementing the Precast/Prestressed Concrete System in this country requires special connection detailing in order to guarantee its full continuity and monolithic action. Various research works, therefore have been focused in developing the most suitable joint-systems, which meet the criteria of safety, economy and workability to meet the capability of local workers. The most recent development of research works of these equivalent monolithic systems and their applications in some building projects are discussed in this paper.
