Structural design is responsible for the design and development of structural plans. It consists of multiple steps that have to be performed sequentially. As the output of a step acts as an input for the next one, using optimization tools to aid the design process can help in achieving a better overall quality or a particular design. In this paper, we present a heuristic method that can provide useful suggestions in a short time for the structural design of a building based on preliminary plans. We also introduce a mathematical model that can be used as quality control of the results.
