The traditional bricks are the main structural component that are used considerably in theconstruction and structure assiduity. The floating block is manufactured by mixing cover ash withcement, lime, aggregate, rice husk and water. The floating block is substantially produced as blockishblock and remanufactured panels. The Floating block is a type of concrete that is manufactured tocontain lots of unrestricted air spaces. The Floating blocks are energy effective, durable, less thick,and feather light. It is produced by adding a raging cumulative to concrete in variety of sizes ofmoulds according to demand. This process is called as Autoclaving. It has been found that thismaterial is an eco-friendly structure material that's being produced from artificial waste and iscontains of harmless constituents. In this research paper, an overview of Floating blocks withreference to its implicit and viability as a new structure material has been generated. The paper showsa relative cost analysis of Floating blocks with the red complexion bricks and its felicity and implicituse in the construction in the structure assiduity.
