Why were Krematoria IV and V built differently compared to Kremas II and III?

From what I understand, the commission to build the Birkenau kremas was issued around the same time, and construction on all four began together (?).

Yet only two of each were built as mirror-images of one another. The blueprints of Kremas II and III had the "morgues" underground while they were adjacent to the crematoria of IV and V.

Why the discrepancy?

Were two different firms hired for the construction of each of these two sets of buildings?

Or did the nazis want to experiment with different building-types in regard to efficiency?

Passing this along, Aaron.

Kremas 2 and 3 (or rather their layouts) are about a year older. Circumstances change.
