On its decision to set up a base in Singapore, Keiichi Okamoto, President and CEO of Nikken Sekkei says, “The Asian share of total global construction investment was 31 per cent in 2005, and this is expected to soar to 46 per cent by 2020.

“Global companies are aggressively accelerating investment in real estate in ASEAN. By using Singapore as a strategic base, we will be able to better engage with our clients here and enhance our services across the region, while contributing to the growth of the local and regional community.”

Nikkei Sekkei is particularly focused on master planning, large-scale mixed-used projects, the development of low-carbon and smart cities, transit oriented development, life-cycle design, BCP and public projects such as underground space planning, hospitals, sports facilities and aged welfare facilities.
