Tapcon + Brick = no.
Hammer Drill + Brick = no.

unless you want to bring the building down in an earthquake! You'd really have to go with an expansion bit or else epoxy (my favorite!) in a brick building. But redheads (tapcon MAY have an equivalent - but I'm not familiar with their brick masonry products - only for CMU to my knowledge) are damn cheap and decent if you watch your QC.
