The world is now growing rapidly in terms of construction industry. The reason is due to the rapid construction. A small attempt is made in our present project to assist this rapid construction by producing a lightweight self-compacting concrete. We have replaced coarse aggregate in terms of light weight aggregate (cinder) as partial replacement in concrete and also included two kinds of concrete i.e., light weight concrete and self-compacting concrete. The main aim is to reduce the self-weight of concrete and voids in concrete. From the results of the project we found that the replacement at 30% and 40% we found better strength and weight reduces up to 10% to 15% by compering to normal concrete the strength of light weight self-compacting concrete at 30% replacement 42.67N/mm2 and 39.11N/mm2 and weight 8.1kgs and 8kgs respectively. Hence it can be used for construction purpose and precast industries at moderate cost and effective result.
