“We want to create new ideas and content that contribute to the well-being of society.”
Ichihashi Masahiro, President & Representative Director, Dainichi Consultant Inc.
Based in Gifu, Japan, Dainichi Consultant has been providing professional engineering services since it was founded in 1952, and over the last half-century, it has had to adapt to the changing demands in the Japanese construction industry.
“Ever since the Sasago Tunnel collapse in 2012, people in Japan have been more aware of the aging infrastructure,” says company president Ichihashi Masahiro. “We must rethink maintenance and repair as efficiently and effectively as possible, prioritizing activities within the limited resources.”
"Japan is particularly vulnerable to natural disasters because of its climate and topography. We have provided the services of disaster response and prevention on roads, bridges, and slopes, as well as, innovative solutions such as the ‘LIRIS technique’, which uses IoT sensors to remotely monitor the movement of damaged bridges and slopes.”
For the international market, DAINICHI has participated in JICA and ADB-funded projects and established a liaison office in India in 2021 for business expansion overseas. “We would like to provide our know-how and innovative solutions overseas on the maintenance and management of road infrastructure and disaster response and prevention. For this purpose, we are looking for partnerships overseas.”
Lastly, Mr. Masahiro has a clear vision for the future of creating new ideas and content, built on human development. Following its management philosophy, DAINICHI seeks to enhance its values by placing sustainability management at the core of its corporate activities and aims to continue to take on the challenge of SDGs.
“We can achieve our plan by improving the capabilities of each employee, our staff being the essence of the company and driving force behind the business, as we continue pursuing SDGs.”
