Many buildings in recent times have planned and constructed for architectural complexities such as building with floating columns at various levels and locations. These floating columns are highly disadvantageous in building built in seismically prone areas. Present study examines the effect of floating columns in building. Models are developed for multistorey (G+5) buildings with and without floating columns to carry out comparative study of structural parameters such as natural drift values,
