Sunagogumi Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Sorachi District, Hokkaido. President: Mr. Kunihiro Sunago) engages in civil-engineering and construction mainly in the center of Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost prefecture, and has adopted ICT-intensive civil engineering very early in the prefecture. Furthermore, Sunagogumi is an active presenter at seminars and conventions concerning ICT-intensive construction information gained in its jobsites, in addition to routine exchange of related information. It has gained a leading presence of the industry in Hokkaido as the top runner of ICT-intensive construction.
Sunagogumi's ICT-intensive jobsites have received many visitors from the civil engineering industry. While visitors' questions centered on machine performance and costs in the beginning, they have recently changed to more technical matters, such as how to generate 3D drawings, which confirms growing interest in ICT-intensive construction.
Sunagogumi adopted SMARTCONSTRUCTION last year. “I am sure that ICT-intensive construction is the future of the civil engineering industry. There is no doubt that application of cutting-edge ICT to jobsite operation will advance rapidly into the future. Our image of the future civil engineering industry, based on this assumption, perfectly matches Komatsu's stance on SMARTCONSTRUCTION,” confirms Mr. Satoshi Kondo, Junior Managing Director.
