The prime objective of conducting this study
was the design of a multistorey (G+2) building. Two
different design methodologies were used for the design
of this building and the quantities of concrete and steel
obtained using both these approaches were compared.
Limit State method is based on the concepts of
serviceability and thus renders reduced sections of
members. The study assess the amount of reduction in
the quantity of steel as well as concrete when limit state
philosophy is used over the working stress philosophy
which is based on the safety criteria.
