The urbanisation and modernisation has led to requirement of construction of high sky scrapers which are aesthetically eye pleasing with large column free space. The scope of present study is based on the effect of a G+10 multi storey building with and without floating column at ground, third, sixth, ninth floor roof under seismic excitation for medium soil under consideration. The dynamic analysis is carried out for the entire project using STAAD PRO V8i and the comparison of various models is presented. Various arrangements and locations of floating column were analysed. The structure was analysed with different location of floating column namely, building with exterior floating column, building with floating columns in the interior and a building with a combination of floating column both in interior and exterior. It has been concluded that the building with internal floating column is the most preferred followed by combination of both internal and external floating column but in building with floating column in exteriors sides is least preferred.
