International Project Team

International Project Team

Since its founding in 1975, POLYTECH ADD has been a constant player in overseas operations. To expand these operations more actively and throughout our company, and to make a social contribution by utilizing skills we have refined through our domestic operations, we established the International Project Team in fiscal 2012.

Services provided by the International Project Team seek to achieve three aims in the urban and landscape planning and environmental planning fields: 1) support clients and administrative agencies in host countries, 2) support Japanese enterprises planning to do business overseas, and 3) make proposals vis-à-vis Japanese systems and technologies based on studies of advanced initiatives in other countries.
