There is no vacant space in the Japanese metropolitan area now with many commercial & residential buildings as the construction rush had boomed in the postwar period.
We used to have a concept called scrap and build in Japan about 40 years ago, but we shifted our method to pay attention to renovation and durability , not rebuilding as we confronted some obstacles of cost & Japanese regulations.
However, we have now 2 big problems in Japan.
1) More unoccupied buildings or houses reflecting the recent reduction of repair expenses incurred by depopulation & aging societies.
We have concerns that our city might be dirty slums in particular areas of NY in the near future.
2) Labor environment problems (status deterioration by workmen and their unstable wages) Craftsmen cannot smoothly hand down their expertise and skills to the next generation with the declining birth rate in addition to the shortage of new craftsmen.
Our parent company, Taiyo Corporation has been thinking about new solutions since 2 years ago which evolve their construction workmen with versatile techniques , not a single one in a short period of time as we have accumulated adequate repair & renovation technologies for a long period of time against the big issue.
Toru koubou is the company newly founded to achieve these objectives.
First of all, we are making core schemes which we develop all the sophisticated skills & techniques succeeded by OJT together with off-OJT (textbooks to obtain their skills & practical OJT systems).
It is the first case by the private company in Japan and they will be completed by the next March .
We believe that it might happen not only in japan but also many countries with the period of `population onus in the world.
That is why we therefore provide our system platform to all over the world.
1) Design technologies which enable us construct durable buildings.
2) Repair technologies of reinforced concrete we have had under many earthquakes in Japan = Deterioration restrained.
3) Our rearing system for workmen with versatile techniques *Productivity highly improved.
We are planning to provide improvement in construction quality and work productivity in each country construction industry.
１）Passing Down Craftsmanship
Toru Koubou specializes in repairs and renovation. We are striving to become an organization comprised only of ‘multi-trade’ engineers.
Having the skills of the five essential trades for major renovation work allows one engineer to perform every process, resulting in longer contract durations.
In other words, decreased downtime and increased financial stability. Taiyo is already home to a crew consisting of multi-trade engineers.
We will continue to pass on the craftsmanship the company has cultivated for nearly 40 years.
