The book provides an overview of the technological capabilities of the Japanese building design and construction industry. The influence on Japan's industry exerted by the country""s largest design and construction firms is described. Using case studies, the striking technological capabilities of these comprehensive construction companies are outlined, as used in building design and construction and in research and development. The industry's relationships with Japan's government and universities are also explored. The book also assesses the effect of the recent economic downturn of the Japanese real estate industry, the implications of contemporaneous construction-industry scandals, and the competitiveness of the United States industry relative to Japan's. In addition, tables summarize the operations, size and R&D work of Japan's largest building design and construction firms, while approximately 65 illustrations augment and amplify the text.
