In a standard single skin wall ( 4 inch) you will have 60 bricks per square meter.
Your wall is 13 inch, in essence it is three times thicker than a single skin wall. Therefore you will have 180 bricks per square meter.
15m x 2.4m= 36 m2
36m2 x 180= 6,480 bricks required

I bought 300 bricks two weeks ago to do 7 m length of wall and 2 foot high so I am thinking if you have double the length of me and a little bit higher you should need roughly 620 to 650 bricks this should be more than enough
