High-tech development on laboratory with high resolution and sensitive device is increased nowadays. This equipment requires very sensitive location to accommodate in a special room, because it may cause improper functioning for a certain devise which required low level of vibration. Due to this problem, the aim of this study are to perform the structural response on two story laboratory subjected to ground vibration input due to traffics and to assess the level of vibration at the floor. The vibrations input are measured by using portable equipment called Laser Doppler Vibrometer. The field measurement is done at the laboratory Block E, Faculty of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). Finite element ANSYS software is fully utilized to model the building structure and perform analysis in order to determine structural modal and transient analysis for the building. Time history response from ANSYS post-processing is transferred into ModalV analysis in MATLAB software in order to evaluate the vibration criteria level of the floor according to specific overseas guideline. It was found that the vibration response on the middle slab of the first floor at level Vibration Criteria, VC-A or maximum particle velocity level at 50μm/s. Vibration Criteria (VC) curve analysis on floor slab indicated the highest vibration will occur at the middle of floor slab and the lowest vibration will occur at the edge of slab which near the column and below VC-E level for ground floor slab
