Novel Method of Using Pre-cast Archtiectural Concrete in Reinforced Monolithic Buildings

THE problem of producing perfectly moulded ornamenture, corners, window and door trim, in the surfaces of concrete buildings is at least partly solved by the practice of a Canadian concern. The method used is to pre-cast, or manufacture in advance, in a factory, all of the decorative features of the surfaces, which are inserted and supported in the forms until the structural concrete, forming the body of the wall, is deposited around them.
