Where is the desirable location of lifting anchors in precast concrete units?

It is desirable that the position of anchors be located symmetrical to the centre of gravity of the precast concrete units. Otherwise, some anchors would be subject to higher tensile forces when compared the other anchors depending on their distance from the centre of gravity of the precast concrete units. As such, special checks have to be made to verify if the anchor bolts are capable of resisting the increased tensile forces.
