This research paper aims at the development of new type of concrete block by introducing frog in the traditional solid concrete block. The main objectives are to improve the bond shear strength, diagonal shear strength, improve handling ability and reduce the weight of the optimized block to counter health injuries during construction process. Intensive comparative assessment of solid and frog concrete block was conducted. Final results concluded that frog concrete block was far superior in structural, economy, quality and handling performance.
