Let R be the radius, and h be the height of the cylindrical portion.

Height of the building, R+h = 2R = D = internal diameter.

This gives, h = R.

Volume = Volume of cylindrical portion + Volume of hemispherical portion

= πR2h + (4πR3/3)/2 = 880/21

(22/7)(R2h + 2R3/3) = 880/21

R2(h+2R/3) = 440/3

R2(R+2R/3) = 440/3

R3(5/3) = 440/3

R3 = 88

R = 4.45 m

and Total Height of the building, = R+h = 2R = 8.9 m
