Due to rapid growth of urbanization & migration of the people, the demand for housing sector especially for Economical Weaker Section (EWS), Mid Income Group (MIG) &Low Income Group (LIG) segment of population is growing faster. Recently, traditional material is been used in construction industries and the need is been fulfilled In recent days the environmental related issue are been faced largely, hence there is need of the alternate material which will be strong, durable, energy saving, cost

To overcome with such problem many advanced construction material & technology is been developed around the world. One such advanced construction material is called as Expanded PolyStyrene (EPS). This paper focus on EPS, when this system is compared to the conventional method of construction i.e. construction using traditional material like brick as infill material in an RCC structure, it is found to be economical i.e. in terms of material, time &labour Also there is huge time difference when we replaced brick with EPS panel. This type of an advanced material can be thought of viable substitute to achieve a goal of sustainable construction & to promote a green technology.
