Food and shelter are the basic needs of every human being, as the population of the world is increasing there is an emerging need of mass constructions or multi storied constructions which can accommodate a greater number of people. In this aspect high strength concrete is required which is eco-friendly i.e. it must be more sustainable and effort worthy. To accelerate the properties of concrete we can add fibrous material to the concrete which are evenly distributed and randomly oriented and helps to increase the compressive strength, shear resistance, crack résistance, modulus of elasticity, toughness and reduction of shrinkage of concrete. And also, by keeping sustainability in mind we have used Lathe steel scrap as a fibrous material in the concrete, which is non-bio-degradable solid waste produced by Lathe machinery in manufacturing industries, land filling by these materials causes land pollution and also affect the quality of ground water at such places. In consideration of environmental pollution and vast availability of these scrap material we have used Lathe steel scrap as partial addition to concrete at 1%, 1.5%, 2% by volume proportions for M30 grade concrete and the properties like compressive, split tensile, bending, flexural beam strength, modules of elasticity are tested for 7 and 28 days and compared with noramal M30 concrete
