Abstract: Concrete which is at high necessity is both economically and environmentally facing contradictions. Invoking this issue as the need of time, Geopolymer has made its existance into construction. But in further stage cement and river sand are both causing depletion to natural resource. The hybrid geopolycreteis eco-friendly, non-corrosive and good durability. Substantial research papers has reported the studies on GGBS &Geopolymer. Composite construction involves the technique in which material efficiency of two different materials go hand in hand. This paper explains the mechanical behavior of GGBS blended Geopolymer Concrete and the results are discussed for its application in composite slab. The hybrid geopolycrete of M25 grade is tested for strength and durability properties by casting test specimens. The design for the slab is performed manually.
