  • Future Plan

      2020/08/22    What I feel 自分が感じたこと

    Hi there After working in the construction industry for over 15 years, I would like to share some of my thoughts and ideas.   I love the construction industry because lots of people have a very simple life and not too much snoring. However, most of the people are not well planned, not considerate, etc. That’s why there are lots of problems in this industry. Actually this industry contributes a lot to GDP, but really poor productivity for the past 100 years and almost the same nowadays. I called this world 3D Discomfort  Danger  Dirty  So what I want is to set up a great system and then support people in this industry. Such as / Improve Operation system ( Support current company, all director […]

Some architects focus on beautiful designs and maybe don’t think about details and total costs carefully, and your buffer for civil works may go over easily. Japan Homes do design and build. We usually provide our clients preliminary estimations when we do concept designs, and when we complete structural designs. By our builder’s eyes and […]
