We look at each opportunity with fresh eyes, and take into consideration local specificities, financial realities, and the desired purpose to find the best solution.

Transit Oriented Development

Transit-oriented development (TOD) is a planning and design strategy that focuses on development in areas with transit to create compact, walkable, and healthier communities that offer value and a greater quality of life for residents. TOD promotes urban development that is compact, mixed-use, pedestrian and bicycle-friendly, and closely integrated with mass transit by clustering jobs, housing, services, and amenities around public transport stations.

Nippon Koei adopts a 3V Framework for TOD, which allows decision makers to better understand the linkages between connectivity, accessibility, place quality, and market potential values around a given station. This approach is applicable to large cities with extensive networks, and also smaller cities with only a few mass transit lines or a bus rapid transit system.

TOD principles cannot be applied uniformly across an entire city or transit network, since densities of jobs and people vary widely across the urban space. For guiding TOD plans, the “three values – Node value, Place value and Market potential value” (3V) of transit stations and surrounding areas are simultaneously assessed. This addresses potential imbalances and provides a common framework of assessment for urban, transport, and economic planners, thereby leading to better economic, land use, and transport integration.

Tunnels and Underground Structures

In a world of increasing urbanisation with higher economic, social and environmental demands, the use of the underground space helps deliver efficient, safe and resilient solutions to the challenges faced by modern society. Underground space development is an important part of city planning and is included in the majority of existing urban plans. Efficient use of underground space promotes sustainable development, improves urban environment, preserves natural resources, and offers long-term economic benefits

Tunnels transform transportation networks by linking nations, uniting communities, and reducing travel time. Water and wastewater tunnels make modern hygiene and sanitation standards possible. Utility tunnels bring us our electricity, telephone, internet, and gas pipelines, enabling us to power our lives. Underground spaces contribute to our transit networks, our energy reserves, and our scientific research.

We provide comprehensive services for every aspect of the construction of tunnels and underground projects, including tunnel design, ground improvement, initial and final support, instrumentation and monitoring, tunnel systems, and ventilation/fire life safety aspects. Our experience encompasses all types of excavation methods including conventional tunnelling using drill and blast methods and road headers, cut-and-cover, New Austrian tunnelling/sequential excavation method, and full-face mechanised excavation using tunnel boring machines, pipe jacking and shaft-raising plant.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
