We are a construction consultancy firm specializing in snow control measures, which is rarely found in Japan.
Our company is a construction consultancy that excels at designing snow protection measures for road construction. We have also dealt with snow control measures for the extension of Shikansen bullet train lines and snow protection measures for overseas railway construction, as well as for high-rise buildings. We possess excellent numerical simulation technology that is effective for snowstorms, avalanches, snow accretion (in warm areas), and other kinds of snow damage. We also develop and sell mobile observation vehicles that are used for snowstorm observation. We use avalanche observation systems (with a microbarometer) and conduct drone observation at avalanche sites, and develop new technologies.
Climate change in recent years has resulted in our starting to see snowfall in unexpected places both in Japan and overseas. I feel that the snow protection technology we have accumulated in Hokkaido will increasingly be in demand in other places. Snow control measures seem to be particularly vital for economic development in countries of the former Soviet Union. Our technology will also be useful in protection and moving measures for sand associated with desertification. This feeling has grown stronger after we have had the good fortune to be able to work overseas. I believe that constant improvement is a requirement for a technology-based company like ours. We intend to contribute to society by enhancing our technological capabilities.
Commendation for merit in preparing numerical simulation of snowstorms (2014), and in helping with revision of the “Roadside Snowstorm Manual” (2011) by the Public Works Research Institute, and so on.
