Construction industries nowadays are implementing new concept known as liveable built environment. A proper plan, build, integrate and sustain built environment are needed in a way that meets current and future needs. It helps to increase affordability and livability that meets diverse social, cultural and economic needs requirement. This research project focuses on creating a new design approach without effecting the strength of the structure. The hooked end steel fibre is used as scattered reinforcement by fully replacing to the reinforcement bar in concrete column. 1.5% (by weight) replacement of steel fibre is used as total replacement to the reinforcement in concrete column. Based on the experiment result is evident that 70% increment in term of strength for the steel fibre (SteFib) column was determined compared to the conventional (control) sample. On top of that the cost comparison also shows 70% reduction compared to the control sample. It is evident that SteFib column can be applied as one of IBS component since these column are used in single storey IBS prototype house in this case here the whole building uses SteFib as replacement for reinforcement.
