    The only thing that comes to my mind would be to insert a thinner rebar type reinforcement into the brick during production.

    You can also use steel mesh and insert it into the brick. Or you can use additives into the brick depending what type of brick it is whether clay brick or concrete brick.

    both of you friends good suggestion but it is then very uneconomical.if your ideas are used then more budget will be required.
