Metalwërks have developed a new whitepaper, UNITIZATION: A Solution for Modern Demands on Construction and On-Site Project Teams, which highlights the unitization process. It also features significant case studies as examples of where unitization eased a project, enabled more complicated elements to be installed smoothly and successfully, or prompted more efficient collaboration between all trades.

Modern construction deadlines are tight. On many projects, fabrication and construction of the building structure has commenced prior to the completion of the exterior façade design. Job sites, particularly in urban centers like New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, are more cramped than ever before, and extra space to lay out and stage materials prior to installation is at a premium. All trades are under pressure to top out the structure, begin the secondary supports for the envelope, get dried in, and commence interior fit out to ready for occupancy. As a result of these pressures, the industry has adapted to accommodate modern demands on construction and on-site teams.
In many cases, the solution is unitization, a process of building assembly Metalwërks® wholly understands, has experienced in a wide range of complex situations, and can offer to their customers if the project follows some important guidelines.
