Incorporating gum Arabic into concrete containing calcined kaolin has been investigated. This research presents the analysis of an investigation aimed at using gum Arabic (GA) as an admixture and calcined kaolin as a cement substitute to improve the mechanical properties and durability of concrete. The goal of this research was to study the physical, and mechanical properties and the cost implication of one cubic meter of concrete. The gum Arabic was used in the proportion varying between 0%-1% by the weight of cement. The calcined kaolin proportions ranged from 0% to 30% by the weight of the cement. The concrete grade 30 MPa was used for the compressive, splitting tensile, flexural, and workability tests.
