Two years ago the author presented a paper on the subject of factory-made concrete, in which was predicted that such construction, besides having other important advantages over monolithic field methods, would prove to be more economical for buildings of limited height, and that in combination with a light strucutral fireproofed steel frame, or what is known as reinforced steel construction, it would prove equally as economical for buildings of considerable height. . .The prinicpal advantages of the unit system over the monolithic field method, besides the absence of all form of work are presented in the paper.
