About his new book Medium

His book titled MEDIUM- extracts and more (Design Guide)

In Medium, you'll find four sections covering the four key phases of a build — Plan, Design, Build and Built.

One of the most common questions that people have had whenever we discuss Medium Density Housing is - what effect will the new Medium Density Residential Standards have on me? We've drawn this simple graphic to show one aspect of things - the change from our existing suburban maximum building envelope (the dreaded height recession planes), to our new recession planes coming in 2022. Up till now, two storeys was all you could really build under your roof plane - and that explains why most of our suburbs all look the same, with those large ugly 27º roofs. After mid-2022, every house in Tier 1 cities (and now Rotorua as well) will have the option to build up to the green lines, and as you can see, that is going to be a potential massive difference. Three storeys is easily achievable, maybe even four stories will be possible. Certainly, a whole lot more people can live under that roof form!

Ged Finch

Director of R&D @ XFrame and PhD Candidate

Ged is a PhD Candidate at Victoria University of Wellington in the School of Architecture exploring how a circular economy model can fundamentally disrupt the way we build in New Zealand. Prior to undertaking this research Ged worked in two architectural firms in Malaysia, was involved in statistical damage analysis of residential dwellings in the 2011 Christchurch earthquake and taught in the fields of Built Environmental Science, Construction, Architectural Design Communication and Critical Theory.

XFrame™ is a recoverable and reusable framing system for the next generation of sustainable construction.

Comprising of twelve standardised components, the XFrame™ system has undergone four and a half thousand hours of design prototyping. The result is an inherently braced structural matrix formed from CNC milled engineered plywood components that can be assembled into structural panels without the need for nails, glues, or screws.

End of life material separation, recovery and reuse now makes great economic sense and the very premise of end-of-life building waste is eradicated.
