The Faculty of Allied Medical Sciences is a medical college, which is located in the Arab American University in Al-Zababdeh- Jenin. The aim of the establishment of this building is to solve the problem of congestion in the old building and   to improve the academic ability of the university by providing additional medical specialties with high standards, which in turn will contribute in the prosperity of the university in the long term     .  This project, which is currently under construction, consists of a basement floors, ground floor, and top two floors, with a total area of 7155m2.  The basement consists of lecture halls and offices with an area of 1713 m2.  Ground floor has offices and a laboratory with an area of 1713m2.  In addition, the first floor has a medical laboratory and lecture halls and offices, the area of the floor is 1695 m2, and the second floor has a Nursing Laboratory and lecture halls and offices with an area of 1713 m2.  This building was chosen because it has a special structural design due to its long spans (up to 9 m) with two-way solid slabs system  .  Structural models will be analyzed and designed by using computer software like SAP2000/Etab, and the results will be checked by hand calculations. In addition, AutoCAD will be used in drawing sections and details .  The Structural elements will be d esigned as reinforced concrete members according to strength and serviceability criteria as specified in ACE 7-2010 and ACI 318, for seismic design UBC 97 and IBC 2012 will be used .  Comparison between codes and specifications for wind and seismic loads will be introduces
