The importance of the construction industry has changed due to recent changes in the environment. In terms of the decreasing birthrate and aging population, accident prevention measures are now in demand to help increase the number of elderly drivers. As vehicles become capable of automatic driving by virtue of technological innovation, infrastructural development will be necessary to support these new functions. In terms of climate changes (e.g., localized torrential downpours, typhoons, tsunami, heavy snowfalls and earthquakes), there is demand for preparation and improvement of disaster prevention/reduction infrastructures as well as restoration of these infrastructures after a disaster has struck.
Macro-economically, the need for productivity improvement of the Japanese economy is increasing in order to restrict the GDP decline caused by the decrease in the productive-age population. Infrastructure improvement is one way to boost the economy. For example, a reduction in travel time allows tourist sites to expand their market and products to be delivered faster. Maintaining the original freshness of regional produce also becomes possible. The economic effects provided by the construction industry (i.e., stock effects – long-term economic effects derived by public works throughout the life of a piece of infrastructure, and flow effects – short-term economic effects of public works in the regional community) contribute greatly to improving productivity of the Japanese economy.
As a new initiative, we would like to offer Japanese technologies and knowledge overseas. We will try our best to improve infrastructure both in Japan and abroad by making use of our professional expertise in detailed process control, construction methods with emphasis on high quality and a reduced environmental burden, maintaining relationships with members of the community and creating a safe work environment for workers. In addition, we would like to respond to the demands of our clients by developing and providing products, and introducing techniques that meet the local requirements.
Our construction works are directly related to the safety and security of our daily lives. We take our role seriously in establishing the foundations for safety. We appreciate your continuous support of our company as each one of us enhances our awareness and abilities, contributing to the development of a flourishing community by creating better infrastructures with our reliable skills.
