A tour of Hasebe’s building in construction

 

Hasebe Co., Ltd. based in Arakawa-ku, Tokyo, is a construction company which is strong in building three-storied wooden houses on narrow land. So far, the company has built about 2,000 units of houses including custom-made houses and built-for-sale houses. Recently Hasebe has celebrated its 70th anniversary in business, and started construction of a four-storied wooden building with fireproof framework structure using its “plus-one construction method” as its memorial project. Characteristics of the buildings are the column base hardware which is strong enough to bear earthquakes, and the 16 folds wall strength in structural wall which have been materialized by using its patented double-wall structure. On November 4, the company held a tour to show the building which is under construction.
