Structural planning and analysis is an art and science of designing with economy, elegance and sturdiness. Structural designing requires an in-depth structural analysis on which the planning is predicted, to compete within the ever competitive market, The use of software can save many-man hours and efforts in structural analysis and an effort was made in the present study to achieve this objective. Study deals with the planning and analysis of G+3 multi-storey building using AutoCAD and Staad-Pro software. The building consists of a parking space on the ground floor and the other three units i.e. one unit of 2BHK and two units of 1BHK on the first second and third floor. The drafting and detailing work was completed using AutoCAD software and thereafter the entire design work was completed using “Staad-Pro v8i ss6. Manual analysis of seismic load is compared preferably with the results of software and thus it's concluded that Staad-Pro is suitable tool that may save considerable time and gives sufficiently accurate results.
