Natural Disaster Risks Management Consulting Services

Mikuniya is completing diverse projects through best use of surveys, measurements and diagnostic technologies to understand the present situation, represent the past situation and predict and evaluate the future situation, according to information obtained from digitalization of diverse events in nature. Prompt, highly accurate and high-quality measurement and diagnostic technologies are required in this work.
For measurements, data processing and efficient data analysis, we put great emphasis on basic technologies as well as on the latest advanced technologies. Also, we interpret this information to scientifically underpin events.

¡Comprehensive Disaster Prevention Project
In Japan, safety measures for constructing infrastructures for safe regional societies have been developed due to the frequency of sudden catastrophic disasters and the ongoing threat of large-scale earthquakes. To promote these measures, improvement of integrated regional disaster prevention by industry-government-academia cooperation is essential. We support diverse disaster prevention measures using software designed to enhance disaster prevention.

¡Business Continuity Planning (BCP)
Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is undertaken to determine procedures for ongoing activities and business continuity in case of risks, including disasters and accidents. The aims of BCP are to minimize the damage to business properties, continue core business, and ensure prompt recovery from disasters/accidents. Business continuity is an important strategic issue at a managerial level, arising from concerns over potential client leakage, decline in market share, erosion of trust, and decrease in valuation.

¡Bridge Inspections
We provide complete bridge inspection services: field surveys, facility inspections, report compilation and detailed survey proposals. We use special, raised vehicles for inspections, draw traffic regulation maps, and apply for all necessary permits.

¡Safety Inspection of Harbor Facilities
For maintenance and management of harbor facilities composed of various materials, including reinforced concrete and complex structures, we provide visual inspections for corrosion, deterioration, damage and rebar arrangements by combining appropriate methods. Based on the comprehensive evaluation obtained from these services, we also make repair and maintenance plans and examine appropriate methods for respective sites.

¡Urgent Investigations Related to Landslides
Landslide and mudflow disasters are caused by torrential rains and earthquakes in many parts of Japan. To deal with such disasters, we conduct rapid investigations in devastated areas, and take proactive measures and make future sabo plans that take into account the disasterfs characteristics.

¡Forest Resources Monitoring
In the field of erosion and sediment controls, we determine sedimentation conditions by combining surveys on streams/hillsides and respective tree measurements and formulate disaster prevention and erosion control plans taking into account water-holding capabilities and forest resources of affected areas.
