Onagawa Fishery Products Local Wholesale Market
A reconstruction project for the Onagawa Fishery Products Local Wholesale Market, which was devastatingly damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. In addition to the speedy reconstruction, we were expected to materialize a next-generation fish market endorsed by the "advanced hygiene management". Upon studying the best contracting scheme, we opted for the early contractor involvement (ECI) scheme. While guidelines for the ECI scheme had not been formulated, we achieved the reduced construction period within given budget.

Since the Act on Promoting Quality Assurance in Public Works was amended in June 2014 allowing –public projects to adopt various ordering schemes, schemes such as the design & build and the ECI (Early Contract Involvement) are becoming increasingly popular. Meanwhile, as the number of technical engineers in local governments is decreasing, "guidelines for a pure construction management system in local government" were issued in September 2020 encouraging the engagement of the construction management system to promote complex and advanced projects. Separately, many local governments are in needs of planning and implementation of PRE management strategies for aging facilities that were built during the rapid economic growth period.
