The construction of a precast, concrete deck that will form the foundation of a mixed-use development in Manhattan entails the use of a massive machine known as "The Launcher." The equipment will be used to place 56-ton, precast-concrete segments onto a temporary platform, and then they will be linked together to form bridge panels. One out of 16 precast segments has already been put into place by the Launcher.
