The building are high rise structures domestically used for residential purpose, this research work is concerned with the analysis for building structure for the purpose of safety. The building is subjected to different seismic zones and variation in soil type. The present paper considered four cases. (Soft soil with zone V, Medium soil with zone V, soft soil with zone II and medium soil with zone II). Analysis were performed to analyze and observe the behavior, performance and response of G+12 story building. Parameters selected and tested are deflection, stresses, bending moment and shear force. Results were traced in tabular format for all parameters value and observed against selected zone like V or II with varying soil type. Conclusion were made to describe the behavior and comparison of result values to set the standard thinking and policy for design engineers and researchers. It is also concluded that the software can be used frequently with positive faith to model, analyze and design buildings which reduces design cost and increases reliability of design with time saving.
