The major problem the construction industry concurs with is the high maintenance cost of the concrete. Various natural processes such as weathering, faults, land subsidence, earthquake, changes in moisture and temperature, have the tendency to create cracks in concrete. Therefore, to counter these effects, it has become necessary to come up with ways which will not only help in counteracting but also in improving the quality of concrete. In the present experiment, cement was partially replaced with Fly Ash and GGBS and Bacillus Pasteurii was used as an admixture. GGBS and Fly Ash, when used with this bacterium resulted in the increase of the strength characteristics of cement
