In this project we do practical comparison between conventional bricks and AAC blocks. We conducted various tests on conventional bricks and AAC blocks for locating out the properties of both bricks. The time required for construction with conventional bricks is more as compare to AAC blocks. Also the price for multi storey building is increased. We will solve this problem using AAC blocks in multi storey buildings. Because AAC blocks are lighter in weight as compared with conventional bricks. During this project we take compressive test, water absorption test, weight comparison, labour required and price required for both bricks. AAC blocks are more economical for multi storey building because they required less quantity of steel due to less weight. Due to AAC blocks the cost construction reduces by 20% as reduction of dead load of wall. The need of materials like sand and cement is also reduces by 50% by using AAC block. AAC blocks are 3 times lighter than conventional brick. AAC block cover more area in less weight of conventional bricks.
