The increasing value of conventional construction materials needs more research and implementation of different alternative materials in civil engineering construction. By far the required coarse aggregate which was used in concrete is obtained from crushed natural rock, but this type of rock which is suitable for concrete making is not accessible everywhere. In a north-eastern state of India brick aggregate concrete are used conservatively for ordinary concrete due to shortage of aggregate from natural resource. Due to development of concrete technology and to complete the resilience necessity it necessitated to use standard concrete, for which only stone aggregate is used, as a result, cost of construction has been skyrocketed as these are transported from other states. A mid this study, brick aggregate is utilized as light weight mix in concrete. The undertaking paper goes for examining compressive strength characteristics with complete replacement of coarse combination with brick aggregate to supply light weight concrete with completely different percentage (0%, 15%, and 30%) to urge smart strength like standard concrete. Concrete 18 cubes are casted with mix proportion (1:1:2) and their mechanical properties are determined and compared with standard concrete. The employment of brick aggregates as for standard aggregates ought to be inspired as an environmental protection and construction value reduction measure.
