Is there a reason to build units one at the time? If we have the money, why do we need to wait so many hours before the construction even begins?

Short answer - each shipyard and or base has the capacity to build one unit at a time. As each shipyard or base represents a single production line, units are manufactured one at time.

Long answer - it can be very game breaking to do it in any other way. Just build a base somewhere and bling build up 20 or 30 units in a few turns to overrun a planet or rapidly put up defenses to stop an incoming fleet which throw logistics and preparations completely out of whack. It gives balance and favours long term planning but also makes war a little more predictable. If I could simply suddenly decide to build 10 Monoliths then at this stage I could burn and pillage and no one could stop me. (And yes, I have the funds to build 10 monoliths).

Higher level shipyard and bases build the units much faster. A level 5 base will make a level 5 unit as fast as a level 1 unit normally. A level 10 can bring out a level 10 100x stack of transports in 20 turns for example.

Shipyards open up new unit types until level 5 then from 5 to 10 it cuts all the construction time in half

Exactly Valhalla - I enjoy it while it lasts! Amazing how much money gets burned just maintaining a monolith in working order.
