Ganged single hung aluminum windows. Best method?

Before I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to do this I thought I'd ask the experts...I'm drawing apartments...in these apartments I need single, double and triple ganged aluminum windows, single hung with two horizontal lites each sash...they need to schedule as one unit each, i.e. the double and triple gang units would equal one schedule entry...all are the same height 4'-4" and the individual windows in each gang are 3'-0"...I have already created the single unit, but how is the best way to create the ganged units?...window assemblies?...curtain walls?...if anyone has a similar window I could modify to learn the ropes I'd appreciate it...thanks.

And set up your schedules/tags to only tag the assembly. If you have other individual windows that need to be in the schedule, you could either jump into Classifications [I have not done so yet] or put the windows within an assembly on a different layer and use a layer filter to exclude those from the schedule.
