Shimizu Corporation was founded in 1804. The company began when Kisuke Shimizu I, who was a carpenter in Etchu or what is now Toyama Prefecture, launched the business in the Kanda Kajicho district of Edo (now Tokyo). From the moment the company was founded, Kisuke Shimizu I aspired to wholeheartedly devote himself to the company’s work and create quality reliable structures. Today, Shimizu continually delves deeply into knowledge and technology to meet the needs of its clients and, by extension, society.
In addition to the core construction business (building construction, civil engineering, and overseas construction), Shimizu engages in four main non-construction businesses : Real Estate Development, Engineering, LCV (Life Cycle Valuation), and Emerging Frontier Businesses.
