Driving innovation and industry best practice in an overheating market.

Japan is experiencing unprecedented demand in the construction industry. With the upcoming World Expo 2025, a surge in data centre development and the return of tourism channelling new global investments into the hospitality and leisure industries, the Japanese construction market is facing challenges in resourcing and project delivery. 

In a busy market with decreased contractor appetite, our local project controls teams help our global clients navigate Japan’s construction industry safely and effectively, supporting the delivery of complex projects on time and on budget.

Making the difference in Japan

With over 40 years of experience supporting companies in Japan and a wide breadth of regional experience, we have acted as strategic adviser on global programmes and provided support on capital projects in the commercial sector. As a key location in our Asia business, we can assist on diverse real estate projects, infrastructure and natural resources programmes.

Our service is defined by our commitment to innovation, working collaboratively with local stakeholders to implement strong project controls and transparency aligned to global best practice. We use our tried-and-tested methodology for project controls adapted to meet the unique local challenges faced when investing in the Japanese market.

We drive productivity, project certainty and deliver better outcomes through digital tools, working closely with Japanese stakeholders to encourage smooth digital adoption and assure appropriate implementation.

Our diverse teams in our Tokyo and Osaka offices demonstrate multilingual capabilities unrivalled in the Japanese construction industry. This brings both local and global expertise as well as industry networks to our projects. We take a creative approach in identifying optimal solutions tailored to clients’ business needs and Japan’s specific market conditions.

In recent years, sustainability and green development has become a key area of concern for many of our clients. We have mobilised global experts to effectively support the delivery of these projects, including electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturing, renewable and clean energy transition and carbon accounting, in line with our own net-zero commitment.

Currently we are delivering some of the industry’s most exciting projects and programmes, including global retail programmes, data centre projects and portfolios, Expo 2025 pavilions, corporate real estate projects, hotels and entertainment attractions.
