In this thesis we fully exploit the setting of metrically generated constructs for the study of uniqueness of completion. For a metrically generated construct X, we develop a technique to lift an existing completeness notion in an auxiliary construct A to a suitable notion of completeness in X and we formulate conditions under which we can build a firm completion theory in the subconstruct X_0 consisting of T_0 objects. Application of this technique to concrete cases results in many interesting completion theories and provides us with a far better understanding of several existing completion theories. An extra feature is that this study allows applications to function spaces and sobrification.
