This modular mold technique was apparently developed in Romania. It involves pouring concrete around a mold which can be heated in harsh cold weather to allow year-round work. By comparison to other methods, the detailing of the concrete edges and surfaces appears to be of higher quality. The finished work has a more substantial and more robust structural appearance. Crews of engineers and workers using this method were contracted out to other countries.
