Due to the boom in the telecommunication business, number of buildings carrying a roof top tower has been increased rapidly. Most of the building were not originally designed to carry a roof top tower, but later converted to carry roof top towers due to the changed requirements. In the present work an attempt has been made to study the behavior of buildings with roof top tower in the event of an Earth Quake using STAAD pro. A typical commercial building is considered for the analysis. Four towers with height 9m, 15m, 21m, and 27m is considered for the study. The building is analyzed by keeping these towers at four different locations at roof top to identify the most suitable location of the tower.
