Abstract. The development of a country is well exhibited through its infrastructure and technology, where civil engineering plays an influencing role in the development of a nation. In the field of construction, concrete is the major material that is used for building purpose. Particularly, natural aggregates are involved in making concrete sound better. The natural aggregates are getting diminished due to its extensive practice. If the same situation prolongs, the natural aggregate gets extinct. This paper majorly focuses on making the environment better and in order to achieve sustainability and to preserve the environment, marble power is employed as partial material in the place of fine aggregate. On the other side, it aims at attaining the strength properties using M20 grade without any compromise. The test results clearly exhibits that incorporation of marble waste in making concrete is eco friendly as well as economical.
