In the last ten years, the growing trend of telecommunication towers has seen a demanding growth. There have been many competitors among operators that have to enhance network reliability and coverage area. The location of tower is very important because it uses latitudes and longitudes with the specified height of mounted antenna which focus towards the practical necessities of the network. In urban areas, it seems that there is scarcity of land and there is no substitute but to implement roof top towers which satisfies ideal installation conditions with respect to its position and height so that spectrum covers the large area. In this work, the results are obtained in terms of the multistoried building situated in seismic Zone-IV. Staad Pro program is used on the structure which is experiencing seismic forces with telecommunication tower positioned at 5 different placing with respect to square base of tower and optimum location of tower over roof.
