Adding Floors

I have a problem of adding extra floors to a building. I will post a picture of the basic skeleton of the building below. Basically, what I am doing is selecting a portion of the top half of the building including the interior column, then I can't seem to find a way to extrude upwards while copying and pasting the floors as I go up, help?

I can't quite understand what you're saying... Are you using components?

No I am not unfortunately it is quite a complex model and to be fair I aint no expert. Basically I have that piece of the model there in the picture. I cut the top part off (the roof) so I could add more floors up to the grand total height of 2000ft. The thing is, I am struggling to do this and cannot seem to find any way to do it.

Make one new floor "in the ground" and make it a component (select all the floor, right click, "make component"). Then copy and paste it anther five/ten times to make a group of five/ten floors. Then just add them to your building and keep copying and pasting them as it reaches the height you want.

Ah OK thanks, if I can get a decent floor for the component this should work!

Don't forget to make the cieling fit with the floor above it. Basically make each floor a part of a jigsaw puzzle. You can even do components for helical buildings, just make sure you rotate them properly.
