Trend in the number of public housing under management

After first becoming a designated manager for Amagasaki City’s municipal housing in 2007, we accumulated management experience every year. Now we have a proven track record of management with 22 local governments and more than 100 thousand units of public housing.
By utilizing knowhow gained from the experience, we provide secure, safe and comfortable environment to the residents of public housing. Improvement of services and cost reduction will surely contribute to local governments’ management operations in line with their policies.

Management experience in other complex housing

In addition to the above, our group companies have over 99,000 units of condominiums under management. Since we are an independent building management company that doesn’t have a parent company such as developers, we have been striving for meeting high demanding customers’ needs on our own. That is why we are confident that we are able to provide high quality service to our customers.

We are entrusted with management of public housing as a designated manager by 22 local governments across Japan.

Since we started taking part in the designated manager system at the early stage soon after the revision of the Local Autonomy Law, we are now one of the top players in the industry in terms of number of winning contracts.

Management policies cultivated from our experience

We provide suitable management in line with appropriate managing policies drawn from our experience of managing more than 100 thousand units.

Management policies

1Compliance with related laws/regulations, and honest/fair management
In order to achieve the objective of the Public Housing Act, we provide knowhow gained from our wide experience, and manage municipal housing in an honest and fair manner as public facilities should be.
2Understanding and implementation of municipal measures and policies
Properly understanding the policies and agenda set out in each city’s general plan, basic plan for housing and housing stock utilization plan, etc., we work together with the local governments to meet their needs in cooperation with related parties.
3Services to the tenants and residents
With the designated manager system, we provide administrative services to residents on behalf of the local government’s officials. Under this system, we provide sincere and high-quality service with good manners and prompt responses as public servants.
4Safe and secure public housing
Needless to say, public housing is a facility that directly affects the tenants’ lives, and therefore we must ensure their safety and security for 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. We believe that it is our mission to assure that we promptly response to repair requests and implement appropriate disaster risk management in daily operation.
5Appropriate expenditure and return to residents
One of the objectives of introducing the designated manager system is to reduce expenses. In public housing management, we try to place orders to local companies for reasonable prices and we utilize our knowhow on building management so that we can achieve maximum effect with a limited budget for the benefit of entire residents.

Shift to preventive maintenance

Partly due to a budget shortfall in public housing management, maintenance tends to be performed ex post facto. By focusing on the need and by replacing equipment before its durable life expiration, we can reduce urgent repair work in the future because once the equipment’s useful life expires, it will be urgent repair and it will cost more to replace equipment.
