Tokyo Fisheries Promotion Foundation Toyomi Center Building
In this new headquarters building project that includes testing and inspection functions, we provided construction management services for both main function and tenant site. By identifying each party’s shares of asset, construction and operation in early stage in order to specify scopes of responsibilities, we were able to focus on managing the project in a neutral position which prompted cooperative relationships among all parties in the project. Received the 2014 CM Selection Award from the Construction Management Association of Japan.
