This article provides a brief introduction to some of the construction techniques of lifting, moving and jacking that may be needed to build more challenging permanent works, particularly when installing large or heavy prefabricated elements.

The article discusses cranes, self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs), slides and launches, and jacking, with the pros and cons of each technique considered.
