The use of monolithic construction in building high-rise residential buildings in most cities have gained wide spread acceptance by scholars and practitioners in the building construction industry. The complexity of calculation of high-rise building requires search for better methodological approaches to construct such long lasting high-rise buildings. For this reason, technological advancement has made it possible to use Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software package to design and undertake structural calculations. The purpose of this research is to make computer modeling study of elastic and firm base multi-storey buildings and conduct feasibility studies of applying their computational schemes. The research design was exploratory and made use of Complex Program (CP) Lira to design and calculate 18-storey residential buildings with basement. The results indicate that displacement for the model with elastic base foundation exceeded the model with rigid base foundation; the compressive stress for model with elastic base foundation also exceeded the model with rigid base foundation while the tensile stress for model with elastic base foundation was less than the model with rigid base foundation. It could therefore be concluded that the design model with elastic foundation could affect the deformation state of multi-storey buildings.
