Renovation and Renewal Projects

When a building is designed, architects seek to ensure that it excels in three areas of performance criteria—safety, comfort, and durability—in a way suits the times. However, the level of assurance steadily changes over time.
In terms of safety, improved earthquake resistance, repair of tiles that have fallen, and removal of asbestos are examples of actions taken. When ensuring comfort, reducing the load on the environment is a community demand, along with improvements to deteriorated functions and facility renewal.
To renovate extensive architectural resources to levels of performance commensurate with contemporary demands and to extend service lives, Kume Sekkei leverages its extensive expertise to add new value, thereby helping to regenerate high-quality architectural resources.
