English translation:rules / limitations for laying concrete
Explanation:
I'm not sure about the exact technical term, but that's the idea for sure.
There are limits / rules as to how much concrete can be poured / laid in one go; each of these "structures métalliques découpées en blocs préfabriqués en usine" will have to correspond by its size to how much concrete can be laid in one go.
