The FLAT slab system of construction is one in which the beam is used in the conventional methods of construction done away with the directly rests on column and the load from the slabs is directly transferred to the columns and then to the foundation. Drops or columns are generally provided with column heads or capitals. Grid floor systems consisting of beams spaced at regular intervals in perpendicular directions, monolithic with slab. They are generally employed for architectural reasons for large rooms such as auditoriums, vestibules, theatre halls, show rooms of shops where column free space is often the main requirement. The aim of the project is to determine the most economical slab between flat slab with drop, Flat slab without drop and grid slab. The proposed construction site is Nexus point apposite to Vidhan Bhavan and beside NMC office, Nagpur. The total length of slab is 31.38 m and width is 27.22 m. total area of slab is 854.16 sqm. It is designed by using M35 Grade concrete and Fe415 steel. Analysis of the flat slab and grid slab has been done both manually by IS 456-2000 and by using software also. Flat slab and Grid slab has been analyzed by STAAD PRO. Rates have been taken according to N.M.C. C.S.R It is observed that the FLAT slab with drop is more economical than Flat slab without drop and Grid slabs.
