A front-runner in transforming construction
Changing society for the better with diverse stakeholders through digital construction
Innovation is in the air at the Nohara Group.
With roots tracing back to 1598 and the present company established in 1947, Nohara has always taken on fresh initiatives and changed with the times, just as we have always listened to clients and partners and provided value in new ways.
Here in Japan, construction is a mainstay industry, but structural issues such as supply chain complexity and the fragmentation of information in construction processes have undermined productivity. The working population is already insufficient and labor shortages are expected to worsen, which is an urgent issue as younger generations seek careers in other industries. And in consideration of SDGs and the environment, the industry is confronted with a need to curb waste and CO2 emissions at construction sites, among other issues.
To address these social issues through Nohara strengths, in 2021 we launched digital solutions business focused on BuildApp, a platform supporting BIM-based design, production, and construction. The initiative has received a warm welcome by many clients, general contractors, subcontractors, building material manufacturers, and others.
