Traditionally, precast concrete is set in wood molds that require regular upkeep after a certain number of castings. The wood molds are also limited in shape by what is physically possible for a carpenter to create. For the Domino Sugar Factory redevelopment project in Brooklyn, Gate Precast brought in 3D-printed concrete molds to bring an ambitious building facade to life.
