OUR STORY

Yoshiaki Takimoto

Yoshiaki Takimoto
Project Manager

Working together with multinational staff

In addition to the construction of the airport terminal building, the entire terminal equipment systems are included in our scope of works which are normally awarded separately to each manufacturer in other projects and this requires expert knowledge. With a Vietnamese client, Japanese consultant, and subcontractors from many countries including Vietnam, Japan, China, the Netherlands, France and Singapore, we are working hard to ensure that information is shared at the earliest opportunity with key staff while optimizing the staff assignment and being mindful to give clear instructions and to follow-up those instructions. Although there are frequent design changes requested by the client, we respond flexibly to them based on the contract conditions as we leverage expertise based on abundant experience with airport construction with the aim to complete the project on schedule.

Constructing the facilities that determine the functionality of the airport

As properly functioning airport facilities are the basis of airport operation, the construction of these facilities is a heavy responsibility. As diverse systems are integrated in complex ways inside an airport, we are working to reduce the risks of this integration as much as possible.
In this project we recreated the actual communication environment inside a temporary building to verify integration among the systems. Although this marked our first such effort, the approach has greatly shortened the on-site testing and commissioning process.

Senior Engineer, Engineering Division

I am in charge of the fuel supply system, airport information system, passenger boarding bridges and other airport terminal equipment. Organically integrating these facilities is important for smooth airport operation and experience counts in conducting the entire design. Construction of the central function of the airport is a highly motivating work. Through the project, we hope to further expand our knowledge and contribute to the Company's accumulation of expertise.
