Checking for a height conflict

I have two feature classes (Eg. Building and Crane). Both have height stored in their attribute table. I'm first checking for space conflict as in if they are touching each other and secondly I have to check for height as in, Check if height of crane is less than that of building. How can I achieve this either by using model builder or python in arcmap.

Thanks in Advance!

a spatial join specifying an appropriate selector and an optional distance field will enable you to identify which are within a distance of 0  Once identified, you can determine the height differences from the data within the fields (ie Z or from the Shape field information
