Precast is not the popular method among the Malaysian construction industry to build a building beside ‘in- situ’ method. This traditional method has been found to be good practice producing the good quality building, due to time constrains. Precast construction has been used progressively employing several component and materials that are inexpensive, rapid site erection and it lends itself to innovation in design and construction. This paper focused on the behaviour of frame structure consists of stress, strain and deflection failure of the frame structure for single storey housing. ‘W’ shape steel with 5 mm thickness and 410 N/mm2 strength is proposed to replace all reinforcement in the beam and column. The failure on the structures was based on principal stress P1, principal stress P3 and resultant displacement contour plot.
