According to the present scenario, concrete is in tremendous use, after water utilization. Concrete has become an inherent neighbourhood of contemporary infrastructure growth around the world. Concrete innovations have been the foundation of the economies of today and will continue in the future. But the question is, what does this infrastructure anticipate? These infrastructures are constructed at high costs and are required to sustain for long periods, 50 to 100 years or more. It could also be disastrous to collapse a massive dam, bridge, or high‐rise; it could end up causing incredible losses. Therefore, maintaining and controlling the structure can be done by producing a concrete with high durability that considers sustainability by focusing on smart construction materials. Alccofine is one of the smart materials which is introduced in entire research work. Study has been done to prepare higher grade M50 to M90 by using SCMs like fly ash and micro silica with different proportions to replace cement to save natural resources. Test have been done to examine resistance against acid, chloride, and sulphate attacks for durability & sustainability concepts to observe its feasibility in real field application. Weight reduction, compressive strength reduction, workability & RCPT values are investigated.
