Imagine a doorway made of concrete

This hollow inside area needs to be filled in with concrete. The entire doorway, (all three sides), is similarly hollowed. It appears that at one time nailers were installed to accommodate the trim that might have been there at one time. We need to cover this up with concrete. I don't think the 2X4's need to be removed, do they? We could mesh over them and crete onto the mesh, yes? I believe this will have to be patched in 2 or 3 steps because it is upright...the mesch has to be filled lightly with the first coat of crete, and left to dry. The second coat will complete the filling process, unless the void is too deep in which case a third coat will be needed. Am I on the right track?
