Currently, many buildings are constructed with precast concrete methods. However, they still use the cast in-situ method, especially for the beam and column connection system where there are some obstacles in the casting process and the possibility of installing the reinforcement bars on site not following the design. Hence, there is potential for structural failure in that part of the connection. To reduce the connection constraints, it is proposed that the method of connecting precast concrete with an innovative connection system that is simple, lightweight, fast in the manufacturing process, can be constructed quickly and effectively on-site, and easily meets the specifications of connection quality. This proposed type of connection is a dry joint type that only uses bolts for the connection system with steel box components. This study will prove that the dry joint system can receive the moment and shear load due to earthquakes still in the elastic phase, not experiencing plasticity. The concept of connection planning does not change the concept of the Special Moment Frame System which applies the concept of Strong Column Weak Beam and Plastic Hinges. The connection is ensured in strong conditions, there is no yielding and damage at the time of a large earthquake, so the failure is not in the connection but occurs in the precast concrete block element that is at the end of the beam outside the planned connection in flexural failure with ductile behavior, not shear failure.
