Synopsis: Japan's six largest construction companies are consistently ranked at the top of the most successful construction firms in the world. This text looks at the business and technical secrets that put them there. Using case studies, Sidney Levy investigates the methods of Kajima Corporation, Takenaka, Obayashi Corporation, Kumagai Gumi, Tasiai Corporation and Shimizu and uncovers their winning formulas. Each case study delves into the unique methods of operation, management philosophies, and a dedication to quality that have put these companies at the forefront of an increasingly global industry. For each company, statistical data, project information and major markets are provided. In addition, extensive interviews with key corporate executives offer valuable insights about management. The book takes a close look at how the technology provided by each of the Big Six companies' research institutes enables them to build a better product. An introduction to Japan and its culture is included to put this information into context. Builders, architects, and engineers will learn valuable lessons on how to win contracts in Japan, co-venture with today's construction giants, and generally improve business at home and abroad.
