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.
