The design and construction techniques of tall building structure have been evolved and improving throughout the past. In today's modern world, improvement on construction materials, development of new structural systems and the usage of structural software have all significantly contributed to the effectiveness of tall building design. This analytical study was carried out to investigate the influence of various parameters on the design of tall building structures of 200 to 250 m height. The influencing parameters include the effects of various concrete grades, such as grade 50, 60 and 80 as well as effectiveness of the structural system based on rigid frame system and the shear wall system. The analysis was carried out using structural software STAAD.PRO 2002. Based on analytical and structural design results as well as obtained from computer analysis, higher concrete grade resulted in appreciable reduction in the vertical member sizes such as column dimensions and the shear wall thickness. Although analytical values ofmaximum drift at the roof level was obtained within permissible limit for rigid frame, however shear wall structural system has shown a lower value of the maximum drift at the roof level. In studying the shear wall system, three different configurations andarrangement of walls were considered, which also affected themaximum drift.
