Elongating the life span of buildings and enabling them to be used for a long time will lead to conserving resources and reducing waste.
In for-sale and rental condominiums and detached residences, along with increasing earthquake resistance, durability and fire resistance, efforts to elongate building life spans, such as making it easy to perform maintenance and renewals of facilities such as plumbing, are being made. Additionally, businesses that perform proper maintenance and reforms for buildings after they have been placed in service are being developed.
Long-Term Quality Housing
The Japanese government is promoting the spread of “long-term quality housing,” where measures are taken for its use in good condition over a long period of time. Accordingly, along with certification of long-term quality housing, projects for promoting the spread of long-term quality housing and leading projects for long-term quality housing, etc. are being conducted.
The custom-built detachmed residences of Mitsui Home Co., Ltd. (excluding areas with heavy snowfall) all standardly correspond to “long-term excellence residences.”
The for-sale condominium “Park Court Roppongi Hilltop” of Mitsui Fudosan Residential Co., Ltd. is the first tower-type for-sale condominium in Tokyo to acquire certification as a “long-term excellence residence” (March 2010).
Excluding a number of products, the for-sale condominiums of Mitsui Fudosan Residential Co., Ltd. are using recycled materials for double flooring particle boards and MDFs of wooden fittings (medium density fiberboards).
