Concrete buildings are most prone to damage during as well as after the earthquake. Their damage leads to consequent loss of lives and properties. This can be tackled by focussing on the laying down of building foundation. It would help getting the idea about how and at what dimension the foundation of any building is laid. If the building construction is done at a calculated height of its foundation, as well as the height of the building, the shock absorptive capacity of the building is managed in such a way that the building is not damaged, and further does not lead to any damage to lives and properties. It suggests that the building must have sufficient height from the ground level, so that the maximum of the shock waves are absorbed by the foundation laid. Thus, the shockwaves are unable to climb up to the building height, and the building is damaged at least extent.
