Beam and block is a construction method to support flooring, especially for ground floors. It is made of cast concrete, one piece of which is an inverted T-shape beam, the other piece being a simple rectangular block. The blocks are placed at regular intervals and the beams placed between them to form a connection between each block section. They form a support for the next layer of flooring materials.
