Lateral stability of building under horizontal loads are the main concern of structure designer while designing any building. Two major types of lateral loads act on building i.e. earthquake load and wind load. Therefore, in present paper, 15 storey RCC framed building was considered when analyzed with earthquake forces and wind forces. Along with lateral forces, different types of bracing system were adopted so that these lateral forces can be resisted well. Comparison between different bracing system along with the earthquake and wind forces was carried out by collecting the results from staad.pro. From the result, it can be concluded that cross bracing and V bracing reduced the maximum displacement of a building by half. And very slight variation was seen in the results of RCC building analyzed with earthquake and wind forces.
