Our Four Approaches toward Total Customer Satisfaction

Since its inception, Obayashi has made consistent efforts to respond to the needs and wants of its customers.
We intend to achieve Total Customer Satisfaction by following four approaches: "Quality" delivered throughout the process of designing and building works, "Technology" offered to meet varying needs of customers, "Safety" at construction site, and "Risk Reduction" that supports customer's BCP.

Health and Safety

We regard the safety of the many people who work on its construction sites to be a top priority. We established a Safety and Health Commitment to "ensuring the safety and health of all workers at construction sites and to creating comfortable workplace environments."

Teaming Up with Partner Companies

To deliver quality that is worthy of customers' trust, it is essential to work closely with partner companies. Obayashi always strives to build a solid partnership with all partner companies.
