Doumei-ikuseikai Doumei Dormitory Hakusan-ryo
A working student dormitory project run by Doumei Ikuseikai (a public interest incorporated foundation). Two major requirements of the project were to create an unpretentious and sturdy environment where students can concentrate on their study, and to provide a large cafeteria as an event venue with capacity of 180 people. For speedy completion of the project, we adopted a performance ordering program that consolidates design and construction with a pre-determined maximum construction cost. We also incorporated the Cost-On program for specific equipment, furniture and fixture. We performed precise cost management based on the budget plan set at the initial concept design phase and optimized the project spending.

In the aging society, the way we approach the school development projects is changing. Renovation of aging facilities while standardizing the quality is expected. Also, when necessary we may consider involving private sector in the projects, or studying possibilities of institutional reorganizations and mergers. For private schools, branding and attractive facilities are equally important to acquire new students. In terms of cultural and art facilities, the expected functions are being shifted to more experience-oriented ones such as integration with dining and shopping, or combination of real and virtual etc., to respond to diversifying needs.
