Abstract – In this experimental study an attempt has been made to determine the properties of cement brick was produced by replacing fine aggregate by quarry dust & saw dust.  The demand of natural sand in the construction industry has increased a lot resulting in the reduction of sources and an increase in price. Under these circumstances, quarry dust a by-product from the crushing process of stones (Blue metal) which is available abundantly  from  rock  quarries  at  low  cost  in  many  areas  and  saw  dust  which  is available from wood industry, can be an economical alternative to the river sand. The compressive strength, water absorption, efflorescence, shape, structure of normal brick and fine aggregate replaced brick are compared and the results are tabulated. This research was experimentally carried out to investigate the properties of both quarry dust and saw dust when used as partial replacement in brick. Comparisons were done on compressive strength for 7, 14 and 21 days.
