Contribute to the Japan’s future as a leader in Spatial Information
We focus on integrating Spatial Information from Earth, Ocean, and Space into the civil design and energy development. This enables us to create a safe and prosperous future society. We consider this our company's most important task.
In 1953, our founder Dr. Hiroshi MORI established a soil investigation company. We began as pioneers in soil investigation, utilizing exploratory boring, soil/rock sampling, and laboratory testing to provide critical ground data, Linear Information. Soon, we expanded into geotechnical consultation, ensuring the safe and efficient design and construction of infrastructures. This transition marked a shift from traditional craftsmanship to professional engineering, driven by data obtained through soil investigation.
Our roles encompass data collection, evaluation, numerical analysis, reporting, civil design, and consultation, all crucial for ensuring the safe construction of infrastructure. We embrace the challenge of turning invisible conditions into visible solutions. Providing design philosophy and solutions to our clients is a highly responsible yet rewarding task for us.
In the 1950s, Japan embarked on a period of high economic and large scale projects. Our pioneering technology played a vital role in the success of these endeavors. Personally, I participated in soil investigations for remarkable projects such as the world's longest suspension bridge, the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, and the extensive reclamation, Kansai International Airport.
I also witnessed the devastating Kobe Earthquake in 1995 and the Tohoku Earthquake in 2011, both of which revealed the destructive power of liquefaction. While disasters are tragic, they are an unfortunate part of life in Japan. However, these experiences served as catalysts for the development of new technologies in investigation, testing, evaluation, design, and preventive measures for earthquake.
Today, we continue to share these advancements globally. We believe that our expertise should also be applied to the dismantling and decommissioning of nuclear power plants affected by such disasters, contributing to a safer future.
Since our establishment, we've consistently developed new geotechnical engineering technologies, all made available to the public. We initially provided Linear Information of ground and have since expanded our focus to include Spatial Information in Ocean and Space.
Our journey has transformed us from a soil investigation and design company into a dynamic Informative Organization, driven by relentless efforts to innovate.
