URBAN DESIGN

We are a general consultant on town development.

Our experience and comprehensive
knowledge for urban planning

We are a comprehensive consulting company for urban planning in
Japan. As the partner of the Urban Renaissance Agency,
we have handled large-scale New Town development projects and
other national projects. From the settling of plans to coordinating with
other concerned parties, from managing an entire construction project
to the after-sales maintenance, we are one of the few companies
that can handle and support each phase consistently. Our greatest
strength is our “technology and organizational strength,” which can
provide an overall support to a wide range of fields, and our
“accumulated wisdom and experience,” to create business solutions in
various areas.

Five key elements in our urban planning consulting

The constant challenge in our urban planning is sustainability. We use these five key elements as our foundation.

key elements

Efficient and Mixed land-use

People living in cities have various goals, whether it is to settle, work,
study or just have fun. We aim to respond to these various goals
through an efficient and complex land use. Through sustainable
urban planning, we are equipped for social environmental changes.
Given that our specialty is large-scale New Town developments and
large-scale land developments, we have developed an extensive
track record in handling projects that involve efficient and complex
land use.

Environment-friendly, Transit-oriented
Development (TOD)

The plans we propose are for environment-friendly TODs. Even those who do not ride cars can freely walk around in an environment where there is no traffic congestion and air pollution. A place that is friendly to children and elders and especially to the environment – this is a place we strive for.

Towards a city that has water circulating richly

In such country where environment, as well as livelihood and different cultures revolve around water, we aim for a wide range of high technology and skills to tackle water problems in the cities. Water is a precious resource that nature has endowed us with. Without this blessing flowing, a sustainable society would not materialize. With high standard Japanese technology and skills, it becomes possible to create a city where water flows freely.

Constructing a flexible energy infrastructure

With the use of our comprehensive advance technologies, we will construct a flexible and expandable energy infrastructure. Through visualizing the usage of electricity, gas, water, etc., the local energy efficiency can be increased. We are also aiming to introduce more ways of saving energy and possibly a futuristic way of recycling energy.

A sustainable eco city to the world

The rise of the economies of Asian countries comes together with
environmental problems which are caused by population increase and urbanization. To resolve these
problems, there is a need to increase balance between the environment
and the metropolis. We can offer Japanese-developed hi-tech projects,
our abilities, and infrastructure construction packages in developing
a sustainable eco city.
