Using our design abilities, we design Japanese energy-saving devices and systems for overseas projects. In our advisory capacity, we extend and procure these devices and systems for use overseas.。
In June, 2013, Yasui Architects & Engineers, Inc., Pacific Consultants Co., Ltd., and Sanki Engineering Co., Ltd. were jointly selected as the operators for the International Demonstration Project for Energy Consumption Efficiency Enhancement Systems and Technologies in Shanghai, China. The project was subsidized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).Following a feasibility study (FS) by NEDO, we signed the implementation document (ID) with the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Sciences in August 2014, and the demonstration project began. This Japan-China joint project will demonstrate energy saving in one building of a research facility that the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute is planning to build.
Puruwakaruto station, Indonesia
The modernization of Purwokerto Station is a major component of Consulting Engineering Services for Detailed Design of Railway Double Tracking on Java South Line Project(III), funded by a loan plan from the
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
By appointment of the secretary of Japan Transportation Consultants Inc. a joint venture formed by Oriental Consultants and four local Indonesian companies was established. This joint venture was entrusted with the execution of a comprehensive railway study and the design of the project. YASUI Architects under the joint venture contributed with a general study and plan organizing the basic construction and modernization of Purwokerto station.
The existing Purwokerto Station building has been designated as a heritage of Indonesia.
As result of our evaluation study, the new station building serves the functions of access and waiting area to accommodate future increases in passenger flow. Simultaneously, the existing station was preserved
as an important exiting gateway and heritage landmark as declared. Additionally, with the appropriate assessment of local architecture, we produced a report which included a proposal of arranging railway civil
engineering technologies based on their particular qualities in the context of local climate and other prerogatives of the site.
Nidec Nagano Technical Center
For the purpose of keeping transparency of flow of building cost, performing severe process control against a subsidy and/or the development creation construction surely, and ensuring the quality such as clean rooms of class 100 surely again, CM method was adopted.
Yasui Architects & Engineers, Inc. is in charge of a design supervision for the building design, a basic design of structure and M&E, CM for a construction and a detailed design. Major construction company which is selected by the total evaluation method will be awarded the package of a detailed design, a supervision and a construction.
The client could start development creation construction during a detailed design period by ordering development creation construction and a detailed design to the construction company at the same time and was able to shorten a construction period eventually. In addition, they could complete the project without any increase or decrease of the building cost against the design changes by our VE proposals.
Suita City Soccer Stadium
CM method was adopted to secure transparency in all processes of the project. In addition, high equitableness was required for the selection of the design builder besides the purpose for which money is spent, definiteness and rationality because it is built with the donations from many supporters and sponsors.
One company is selected among the plural candidates after the examination of the proposals by the outside professionals, and the result and the comment by them on the submitted proposals are shown in the HP of the client. Yasui Architects & Engineers, Inc. will manage cost, quality, and the schedule strictly as CMr (construction manager) as from the design stage.
In addition to the scheme which is the construction with the donation, this project is attracted attention from the viewpoint of coexistence between stadium and local area and environmental formation. We are asked for the ability to integrate the wisdom of the client, the design builder and many people concerned and will meet this steadily.
RISONA Bank Noda Branch・Nishinomiya Kitaguchi Branch
It is the project to sell the real estate to the construction company with the proviso that the Bank builds the building and rents the space for the branch office in the building.
We executed an investigation into prior site potential and a study of the building which we could plan, an evaluation of the proposal from the construction company, a design, application and a affirmation of cost and the process, confirmation of details and the progress of works performed in the construction stage, a call to inspection and after-sale service, the assessment of cost for the addition change to secure the quality of the building.
For office buildings planned in Tenjin that was a central city area of Fukuoka-shi, we executed verification of building and interior design details and supervision done by third party, assessment of building cost from a design stage until building application after the completion.
We received an order of CM business on a design and the construction of the extension from the owner of the adjoining land while doing a construction of building.
Because this building was planned to be resold during construction, we received an order of making the ER (engineering report), moreover design and supervision work for the bank that move into the building as a tenant.
By the BIM utilization with a viewpoint of IPD, a design process changes from a conventional “sequence model” to “a concurrent type” in practices. It will be performed in parallel and comprehensively not only a business plan, a building design (unification of design, structure, M&E element) and an environmental design but also a cost plan and a plan of the facility management, and developed it for adjustment with the production and the construction and also various management.
In this business, we use BIM technology to support the client in areas such as creating approximate estimate systems, creating systems for the efficient propagation of design information, and linkage between 3D printers and building production.
Yasui Architects & Engineers, Inc. is working on this project in partnership with JM Corporation, designing new stores for a major convenience store chain. Using our long experience and technical ability as an organizational design office, and our record as an early adopter of BIM in our own design work, we provide the following support. Our aims are to ensure design quality, shorten design time, and save construction costs and time through supply of materials.
Unification of data creation methods, use of BIM software functions, rule formulation for parts This work built a BIM model creation method for each store variation, as illustrated below.
BIM models organized in this way greatly reduced the numbers of parts and files subject to revision, enabling instant handling of even intricate monthly specification revisions. The change helped to raise working time efficiency and stabilize quality.
