he conventional masonry unit used is clay bricks for construction of masonry works but with advancement of time these clay bricks were replaced by fly ash bricks of same size and shape. But the masonry unit used for the construction of masonry works in the western Gujarat region of India, Kutch is a lean concrete blocks of size varying as per the purpose of masonry work i.e. for load bearing or parti tion work. This research paper presents the introduction to such masonry units through its manufacturing process and experimental work by performing compression test, water absorption test, cost feasibility and comparing it with the conventional clay brick s (bricks readily available from market) .
