In the construction of a high-rise building, structural members can be turned by the wind during lifting, making installation work more difficult and reducing productivity. This paper describes a system for the control of rotation around the vertical axis during the lifting of members. The system consists of three major units; a sensing unit, an operation unit, and an actuating unit. The operation unit incorporates a rate gyro, which keeps track of the lifted members in initial direction. It

Although this system contributes greatly to safety and work efficiency when used alone, it will also be an extremely useful sub-system in the future total automation of construction.
