Any project involving large quantities of precast concrete elements must take into account planning, organization, equipment, and erection - all interrelated and dependent on each other for sucessful completion of the job. The most important phase of the whole operation is planning. Good engineering forethought that determines casting yard layout, sequence of operations, precasting and erection techniques, selection of equipment, and manpower organization prior to actual construction will lead to decreased operating costs.
