In recent year the increase of population, commerce and trade and the cost of land in cities have resulted in a considerable increase in the number of tall buildings. At present, there are many factors effecting the selection and design of the high-rise building structural system. Therefore, various method of analysis in computer computation are easy available in the market. Two different softwares which are the STAAD.PRO and ESTEEM were used in the analysis and design the concrete and steel multi-storey buildings for 4 and 12 storey building. However, it is predictable that these computer softwares help us to understand how patterns affect the design of building, the performance impact and how they fit. The various types of loads (dead, imposed, lateral load) were computed based on the 8S6399 and 8S5950. The results were checked by various methods. Comparisons of the output from STAAD.PRO and ESTEEM (bending moment, axial force on the structures frame and etc were compared).
