In face-down casting the inside surface of the mould forms the component finish. In face-up casting the surface of the mould forms the back of the component so that structural ribs can be formed, leaving the panel face flat.

This is a partially precast method where a wall is cast flat on the ground at the site, directly adjacent to the floor slab. Once it has cured sufficiently, it is then lifted up into the vertical position and bolted directly in place.
