The New Belgrade represents the city of post-war social housing where some 250.000 inhabitants live on more than 4.000 hectares. It was planned as a modern city to be the administrative center of New Yugoslavia, but the post-war demand for dwellings and new incoming populations turned the plan from 'administrative city' to 'city of housing', as a consequence of the political and economic crisis. Conventional design approach and 'cast in place' construction with large panel couldn't respond for the complex post-war situation. By modernizing the technology and applying industrial construction methods building structure become a prefabricated systems' configuration of two technologically independent parts: load-bearing structure and building envelope. Partition walls and different supply systems has been installed independently from load-bearing level. Different Yugoslav construction technologies has been developed by industry to control and to satisfy the flexibility performance of the systems' building process. Massive structure become a systems' configuration model of primary construction (load-bearing system) and secondary construction (building envelope). Finally, the 'open' quality of the Yugoslav IMS skeleton construction technology is flexibility in the production and assembly of elements of the primary and secondary construction. Flexibility value of systems' model and open hierarchy assemblies will be considered for integration of new regeneration and energy efficient systems, toward more flexibility and energy efficiency at the building level, with the special emphases for the potential benefit of new infill industry development for housing systems rehabilitation from "inside"
