Spanish term or phrase: substituyendo la estructura tipica de porticos por cajones prefabricados
Good Morning,

I am editing a paper on bridges. they refer to the a technique called "Habitable hollow beam" and modular -arch system.

my doubt in the "field" above is the cajones - it has been translated as drawers but I don´t think so.

can you help?

thanking you in advance

Well... following clarification by the asker, I think that "cajón" can refer to "foundation" (i.e. "cimiento"/"cimentación").
