At Takenaka Corporation, our philosophy is to contribute to society by passing on the best works to future generations. We believe it is an important social responsibility for those of us in the construction industry to be proactive in realizing a sustainable global society; and thus we create architecture that responds both to the needs of the age and to the expectations of our clients. This, we believe, is an asset to society as a whole, as well as an enduring symbol of our culture. Takenaka adheres to our company’s history: we were founded some 400 years ago by a master carpenter and, despite these challenging times, that tradition is reflected in our core values and underpins our enduring management philosophy. We will advance and refine our abilities, and perfect those skills which enable us to carry out the entire construction process from design to construction to quality management. This is how Takenaka contributes fully to society.
