This research involves analysis of building types, dimensional standards and structural answers to seismic action of steel; acquisition of a steel building process, which offers advantages because of the minor band and the higher possibility of uses. Designing matrixes of the metasystem were elaborated considering the dimensional standards, jointing the residential units in different combinations according to the most diffuse types of skeleton framing permitted by the non conventional building system.

The research has been developed individualizing the works of completion and finishing with respect to the performance levels and integrative possibility of the constructive procedure defined as non conventional. The solution individualized through the examination of a sample of production has been catalogued and applied to some building typologies according to the standards of the plan of the metaproject. An automatic procedure, which aims to supply a guide to the design by using the most common software for the plan and for the automatic calculation, has been combined with the metasystem set-up. .
