The Nomura Real Estate Group designs and constructs building and spaces that serve as the foundations of the lives and businesses of stakeholders including customers (residents, tenant businesses, facility users) and local communities over the long term through all aspects of its real estate and urban development business, and operates and manages properties after the completion of construction.
As concerns rise regarding the aging and obsolescence of buildings and infrastructure and increases in natural disasters such as large-scale earthquakes, providing buildings and spaces that are safe and secure throughout their entire life cycle is an important responsibility of the Group.
Based on this awareness, the Group works with suppliers such as design and construction companies to increase the lifespans and durability of buildings.
The officer responsible for quality management and architectural design has been put in charge of this issue for the Group, and we are carrying out measures to increase building lifespan and durability.
In addition, the CSR Committee, which comprises Nomura Real Estate Holdings and Group company directors and others and is chaired by the Nomura Real Estate Holdings executive vice president, deliberates on and decides related policies and action plans.
Starting in fiscal 2018, targets regarding enhancement of building life span and durability were set, and the Committee is monitoring progress.
To carry out measures that will increase the lifespans and durability of buildings, the Group strives to provide products and services with long lifespans and high durability.
In order to reduce the economic and psychological burdens on condominium residence and management associations, the Group offers products and services intended to lengthen large-scale repair cycles in order to reliably carry out large-scale repair plans.
In fiscal 2017, the Group Launched re:Premium, a service that lengthens large-scale repair cycles at completed PROUD condominiums.
Under this program, the cycle for large-scale repairs, which is normally planned for every 12 years, is extended to 16 to 18 years, and ultra-long-term improvement plans extending up to 60 years after the completion of construction can be formulated.
In fiscal 2018, the Group launched the Attractive30 service, which seeks to increase the lifespans and durability of newly-constructed condominiums.
The service employs high-durability materials and construction techniques and introduces the re:Premium service to lengthen the cycle of large-scale repairs.
Fiscal 2017 performance against the set targets was as set forth below.
In addition to promoting the re:Premium service, the Attractive30 service was launched in fiscal 2018.
