Smart Vision 2010

Aiming to be a Smart Solutions Company

Growing alongside society and creating environments where people can enjoy comfort and peace of mind

At the Shimizu Group, we seek to be a Smart Solutions Company, with the construction business positioned at its core. Our goal is to advance the sustainability of society and of construction while providing value that surpasses customer expectations.

A Smart Solutions Company is a company or group of companies that provides customers with added value and timely solutions. This is done through proactive participation, investment, and management in promising spheres of business surrounding the core construction business, as opposed to focusing solely on basic construction tasks.

Towards the realization of the Long-term Vision "Smart Vision 2010", Shimizu formulated the Midterm Management Plan 2014 (FY2014–2018) in June 2014.
