While we founded our business in the construction industry and take on the challenge of solving various social issues, we have provided “the creation of a reassuring and comfortable living environment,” our corporate philosophy, not only to the people who have directly ordered buildings and social infrastructure, but also to the people in the surrounding area and society as a whole.
Our company’s brand message, “Building the future on new foundations” embodies our determination to create a new future by reforming construction even more to transcend the framework of the construction industry and continue to address social issues. Based on this message, we will continue to build better relationships with local communities and society and create a new future that surpasses everybody’s expectations.
“Tokyu Kids Program”
The annual “Tokyu Kids Program” is a hands-on event in which parents and children can tour facilities and experience work themselves. It aims to familiarize participants with Tokyu Group companies and how our operations are developing across a wide range of fields that are closely connected to their lives. Our “Tokyu Kids Program” related to construction and civil engineering has been held annually at the Technical Research Institute since 2009.
Clothing Aid Activities for Africa
Motherland Academy International, a nongovernmental organization made up of mothers who convey the equality and preciousness of life to children through actions, conducts aid activities in West Africa. Through this organization, every year since 1991, we have carried out activities to provide clothing donated by Tokyu Construction Group employees and our subcontractors to regions of Africa, where aid does not reach. For 28 years, through 2018, we have delivered a total of over 160,000 pieces of clothing to countries such as the Republic of Mali.
Charity Events to Support Cancer Patients
We have sponsored and participated in the Saitama Relay of “Relay for Life Japan,” a community-based charity event that supports cancer patients and their families, for 10 consecutive years since 2009. Employees, their families, and subcontractors helped with the
24-hour charity walk and fundraising activities, with the aim of increasing awareness of cancer prevention and conveying the preciousness of life to the next generation. We also provide voluntary support for the operation of the event, including preparation of drawings of the venue and setup/removal work on the day of the event.
Production and Screening of the Movie “Signpost of Reconstruction”
We produced a documentary film about restoration work on the North Rias Line of the Sanriku Railway, which suffered tremendous damage during the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. This movie documents the struggles and shared hopes of civil engineers engaged in the restoration work, as they continued contributing to reconstruction after the earthquake, through the resumption of operation of the entire North Rias Line. We held a screening of the film in February 2019, with the aim of preventing the weathering of the earthquake traces, and deepening the understanding of the work of civil engineers among the general public. The movie is currently available on YouTube as well. Our endeavor to increase interest in the civil engineers who support social infrastructure was highly acclaimed, and the movie won the grand prize at the 2018 Japan Society of Civil Engineers Film Competition.
