Hi Sunny, experts would always suggest common burnt clay bricks for construction but people lately have begun to experiment. CLC or the cellular light weight bricks have become very popular in recent times.
- They have a good strength to weight ratio and helps in reduction  
  of dead load resulting in saving of steel & cement, also reduces
  the foundation size
- Air conditioning requirement is considerably reduced because of  
  a better acoustics and thermal insulation
Consult some experts to get more info on this and if possible see some live examples as decisions like these are made only once for a lifetime.
Good luck :)

With a very good strong mortar plastering, it is possible to have construction of a brick wall which can take the load in first floor.

If load acting on the structure is more, then you can go for reinforced brick wall construction, where you can save money interms of concrete, and also it is a low energy consumed material when compared to concrete.

Post subject: Stregthening 4 inch brick wall

Dear Sir,

I got constructed a 40 feet long 4 inch thick wall section on all sides of a 60 x 20 feet plot. I feel that 4 inch wall is not all that strong although people are constructing 5 storied houses in South Delhi rampantly.

How can I stregthen these walls now that they are already built but not yet plastered?

Do you think Dr Fixit or something are any help?

Thanks

CS
