What we want to achieve with the Co-Creation Program
1. to provide a rich and diverse work and lifestyle that makes every day enjoyable / Co-creation of added value
Sankei Building is diversifying its business operations from office to condominiums, hotels, and various other businesses.
We are looking for ideas that can create added value by leveraging the resources of these businesses and updating the business models that Sankei Building has been working on.
Office workers can work "more comfortably" in the office.
The condominiums where tenants can live "more comfortably and safely".
Hotels where hotel guests want to have a more exciting experience.
We would like to create added value through ideas that lead to Sankei Building's corporate message, "More inside each and every person. We will work together with startups to provide a work and lifestyle that makes every day more enjoyable.
2. creation of new business created by media and real estate - more exciting business
Sankei Building has been engaged in various developments as a media-related real estate developer for the Fuji Sankei Group, which includes Fuji Television Network, Inc. In the future, we intend to take on the challenge of creating synergies within the group companies, not only in the area of real estate development.
We are looking for business ideas that link real estate with the Group companies' resources in the areas of television, newspapers, radio, publishing, film, music, and content production, sales, and distribution.
We are looking forward to receiving flexible ideas and proposals from startups that are "Media x Real Estate x Exciting".
3. improving operational efficiency through the use of technology
Real estate development work ranges from preliminary surveys for site and property acquisition to building construction, leasing, and sales.
As soaring construction and labor costs and delays in construction schedules are in the news, schedule management and control of construction projects and early risk recognition are social issues that the real estate and construction industries must address.
The following examples are business issues that we believe have the potential to improve operational efficiency through the use of technology. We would like to work with startups to promote initiatives to increase the productivity of real estate development operations.
Elimination of the division of real estate development operations (business planning, land acquisition, product planning, business promotion, quality confirmation, facility operation, leasing, and sales). In addition, industry practice is to accumulate information on a paper basis, which hinders the training of human resources and the sharing of information.
Speed up and optimize operations during the initial building planning phase.
In the short time available to acquire a site, it is necessary to confirm building plans. This tool improves the efficiency of the confirmation process by providing immediate information on legal conditions, etc., and enables the verification of many patterns.
[Assumption of construction costs with a high degree of accuracy
Since information is limited in the early stages of building planning, assuming highly accurate building costs is one of the hurdles in the process, and we would like to make highly accurate building cost assumptions at an early stage.
[Reading architectural drawings].
Architectural drawings are vast in quantity and information. It takes a lot of time to check that the necessary information is reflected in the drawings. This tool makes it possible to check drawings quickly and reliably.
[Tools/means by which we can recognize misconceptions].
During post-completion inspections of buildings, misunderstandings between the client and the builder are sometimes found. To prevent misunderstandings on both sides, we would like to reduce rework by converting 2D drawings to 3D, conducting virtual inspections using VR before construction, and taking other measures.
Early Visualization of Underground Risks
Is there a way to identify risks such as underground obstructions early and with a simple response?
Early identification of potential tenants
In order to stabilize the business, we would like to shorten the time required to conclude contracts by achieving an early approach to potential office tenants and prospective tenants of rental condominiums.
Approaches to land and building information that cannot be reached
As seen in the recent problem of vacant houses and buildings, it is expected that there will be cases in the future where information on vacant land and buildings will not reach the market. Means to approach information on land/buildings that are outside the market.
4. proposal of product planning and initiatives utilizing DeepData
We are looking forward to receiving innovative ideas that will lead to the exploration of urban sustainability, the improvement of living environments, and the realization of new work styles and lifestyles by utilizing "DeepData" from the offices, apartments, senior facilities, hotels, and aquariums operated by the Sankei Building.
What is the DeepData that may be obtained?
Movement and placement data within the facility
Environmental data (air quality, lighting, sound, etc.)
Infrastructure data (telecommunications, electricity usage, water, etc.)
Digital Device Usage Data
Social and Communication Data
Biometric data (heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, etc.)
Health and wellness data
Audio and video data
Service Usage Data
