Structural Testing Laboratory

Shimizu believes advanced structural safety constitutes the basis of a safe and secure society.
Ensuring structural safety is essential not just for the safety of an entire facility, but for society in general. At the Structural Testing Laboratory, large-scale testing sites, highly reliable testing equipment, and efficient and flexible measuring instruments are used to perform various structural experiments, with vital support from experienced employees. These activities support the concept of social safety at its very foundations.
