Nowadays there are so many disasters happening all around the world, like terrrorism, natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, Hurricanes etc, actually “Earthauakes don't kill people the buildings do” so it has become more important to design a building that can withstand these acts and give protection of the building occupants, the structure and for the continuity of operations during such hazards is of priority right now, So what are the safe construction measures that are required for the buildings of today.

Asses threats and Risks

idea posted by Venkatesh M Warehouse Manager, Larsen and Toubro
All facilities face a certain level of risk associated with various threats. These threats may be the result of natural events, accidents, or intentional acts to cause harm like terrorism. Regardless of the nature of the threat, facility owners have a responsibility to limit or manage risks from these threats to the extent possible.

Gaps between the buildings

idea posted by Abhik Datta Construction-Heavy, Sobha Developers
This is mainly for plain earthquake reason, remember earthquake in india in Gujrat, so many lives were lost and so much damage. When a building experiences earthquake vibrations its foundation will move back and forth with the ground. These vibrations can be quite intense, which creates stresses and deformation throughout the structure making the upper edges of the building swing from a few mm to many inches dependent on their height size and mass.

So a building needs to be slightly flexible and also have components, which can withstand or counter the stresses caused in various parts of the building due to horizontal movements caused by earthquakes.

Effect of Sanitary systems

idea posted by Subhendu Roy Construction-Heavy, DLF

Wherever proper planning is done during construction, sanitary vertical stakes are fixed on outer faces of the walls. But in the recent years a trend has started to embed these pipes with in walls in smaller housing just for getting better looks and creating designs inside the toilets and on the outer face from elevation point of view embedding hides these pipes, because of this causes these pipes to pass through structural members such as beams at times in positions of maximum shear or bending moment.

 So go back to old days on this issue, people had kept pipes outside the building wall for a reason guys.

I agree with you anant. It is the best method...  
I agree with Mr.mohammad and  I think there is no such empirical formula so you can spend a reasonable amount on site investigation.... 
Hey this will help you to find the right institute.....
