Abstract: Translucent concrete permits the daylight specifically to go starting with one of its end then onto the next end. This is to be finished by embedding plastic optical filaments in concrete which is chiefly utilized for correspondence reason and the optical strands take a shot at the premise of Nano optics; in this paper cost examination on execution of translucent concrete in room (translucent concrete room) is talked about. The examination depends on the estimations and analyses, computations are done on the suppositions that plastic optical filaments of 2mm width are utilized in the room having specific measurements. By using these plastic optical filaments in concrete was checked for the expense as well as checked for the light force going crosswise over casted concrete blocks. Lux meter was utilized for estimating power of light and sizes of (150mm x 150mm) (22500mm sq. surface zone) with thickness of 75mm solid 3D shapes was cast to check the outcomes. By utilizing translucent concrete in room won’t just keep up the quality of the room yet will likewise enable the light to go into the room bringing about immense measure of vitality sparing and giving different advantages of daylight. Base on the presumptions of utilizing these casted cuboids in the room the last expense of the room was determined and was contrasted with the expense of regular room and last outcomes rely upon the measure of vitality that gets spared by utilizing translucent concrete in room and different advantages of utilizing translucent concrete in room and it was found to be economical and energy efficient source to utilize translucent concrete in rooms or buildings.
