Implementation of a Livability Satisfaction Survey and Other Surveys

Every year, the Group conducts the Post-contract Surveys and Post-delivery Surveys in the residential development business as well as a Livability Satisfaction Survey of PROUD condominium residents one year after moving in.

Results of Livability Satisfaction Survey Reflected in Products and Services

The Group investigated improvement measures based on the opinions and requests expressed in the Livability Satisfaction Survey, and some opinions and requests relating to design were reflected in Design and Construction Standards and Quality Manuals. In fiscal 2020, we received opinions and requests regarding exclusive areas and common areas such as storage and common facilities overall, and we are considering improvement measures based on the opinions and requests.

Carrying out Tenant Company Satisfaction Surveys

Every year, the Group conducts a Tenant Company Satisfaction Survey relating to the Group’s services among tenants of retail facilities owned by the Group. The survey includes questions related to safety management (performance of security and security guards) and the working environment (air conditioning, smoking areas, and restrooms). We use the results of the survey to consider and implement improvement measures.

Measures Towards Good Design Award

The Group strives to provide socially and environmentally sustainable products and services. As part of this, it undertakes measures encouraged by the Good Design Award*, which leads to improved customer comfort. The Good Design Awards are evaluated from the perspective of whether a design can enrich lives and society.
In fiscal 2020, Nomura Real Estate Holdings, Nomura Real Estate Development, Nomura Real Estate Partners, and Nomura Real Estate Life & Sports collectively won 10 Good Design Awards, marking the 19th consecutive year in which the Group won Good Design Awards.

The Good Design Award: Japan’s unique comprehensive design evaluation and commendation system, operated by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion. The purpose of the Award is to find and share exemplary design in many spheres with the potential to drive industrial growth and enrich lives.

News Release

Design Review Contest

Every year, the Group invites outside architects in residential development to conduct a design review. The architects look over the detached residences completed the previous fiscal year and also conduct a 360-degree review of the design, management, community, and other factors of several representative properties toward improving customer satisfaction. In fiscal 2020, the construction project of the wooden common building at PROUD City Kichijoji was shared and reviewed, which subsequently contributed to setting standards for wooden construction projects.
