Consider the two statements:
A is constructed in a similar way as B
A is constructed in a similar way to B
Which one is correct, or can they both be?
By the way, I originally thought of the sentence is a weakened form the following:
A is constructed in the same way as B
This might subconsciously lead me to prefer the former construction, although if I would expand the sentences above into imagined longer versions, I might have to choose between
A is constructed in a similar way as the way in which B is constructed
A is constructed in a way that is similar to the way in which B is constructed
where I guess the latter sounds better.
