Abstract:
Unit construction has arrived. The large number of structures built after this method duuring the last few years shows that it can be successfully used for practically all kinds of reinforced concrete construction. We now know that contracting companies exploiting unti methods have a fair chance of obtaining contracts in open competition; in fact, it can be truthfully said that where conditions are favorable, unit methods have the old forms of construction hopelessly beaten.
