The Daiwa House Group's Business Operations and Strengths
Single-Family Houses Business
Providing a wide-ranging product lineup that anticipates future needs
Having honed its advanced technology as a pioneer of industrialized housing, Daiwa House’s single-family houses supply infrastructure essential to people’s wellbeing, namely the shelter that, along with food and clothing, forms one of the three necessities of life. To date, we have sold over 630,000 such houses. Despite the shrinking population and falling number of new housing starts in Japan, ways of living that are safe, secure, comfortable, and enriching are still in strong demand. Daiwa House is committed to expanding its share through our product lineup always at the forefront of the needs of the times and our expert teams of sales, architects, and construction engineers that stay close to our customers in every single process. We intend to continue working through our business to maintain the infrastructure of society.

Daiwa House Industry
We offer residential comfort and guaranteed safety with our cutting-edge steel frame and wooden structure homes
Driven by the evolution of our proprietary technologies, we have achieved constant growth in our core business of single-family houses. We have added popular models to our lineup in anticipation of the needs of each successive generation. These include the steel-frame xevo – whose high-level seismic absorption capabilities allow it to withstand repeated massive earthquakes – and the PREMIUM GranWood, a high-quality house model with a wooden structure. In addition, through our "For Nature" residential environment brand we offer economically efficient, comfortable, safe, and environmental-friendly homes that not only meet all our customers’ needs, but also help realize a sustainable society thanks to their minimal environmental impact.
Our Team-xevo helps you realize your dream home – individually customized designs for custom-built houses
We listen carefully to our customers’ preferences to get a detailed understanding of their "dream house," and then plan everything down to the last detail to create ideal living spaces. Leveraging know-how acquired over many years in home building, we mobilize leading-edge technologies in fields such as earthquake resistance, durability, and energy conservation to offer strong and comfortable houses. Our "Team-xevo" concept brings together experts including sales staff, architects, interior coordinators, and construction technicians, who collaborate with each customer right from the start, up to completion of the house and beyond.
Houses in housing development projects
Developing communities where people can come together, feel at ease, and be happy
Taking fully into account the interaction that people need with the natural environment, as well as the requirements of safety, Daiwa House develops communities where residents can live comfortably. We handle lot-subdivision planning, housing design, interior coordination, exterior design, and streetscape design. With each aspect of development entrusted to professionals in that field who are dedicated to ensuring a comfortable residential environment for the families who will live there, our housing developments feature bright, open townscapes affording attractive green vistas, where people can mingle easily with one another – communities that warm the hearts of both residents and visitors.
We are currently operating businesses in the United States and Australia. Stanley-Martin Communities, LLC, which operates on the US East Coast region, joined the Group in 2017. Stanley-Martin subsequently expanded its business area through the acquisition of the single-family home businesses of Frontdoor Communities, LLC in February 2018 and Essex Homes Southeast, Inc. in January 2020.
In Australia, the Rawson Group, which builds single-family houses and also operates as a land developer, joined the Group in fiscal 2018, thereby accelerating our acquisition and application of know-how relating to the housing construction business in Australia, as well as the expansion of our operations.

Rental Housing Business
Expand share via product development from a tenant's perspective and stronger relations with property owners
Our rental housing business combines the twin strengths of developing high-quality housing from a tenant’s perspective while also offering comprehensive support for managing rental housing for land owners, from site assessment, design, construction, up to delivery. The social contributions achieved through this have led to a occupancy rate of around 98% for the 590,000 properties managed by the Group.
Our extensive product lineup satisfies the diversifying needs of rental housing, such as rental housing with security features, elderly-friendly housing, and medium- to high-rise rental housing that utilizes real estate securitization schemes. Our ability to provide such high value-added rental housing is driving expansion of our business.

Rental housing business
Value-added rental housing to help pass on assets to the next generation
We provide landowners considering effective land use with comprehensive services covering everything from initial estimates of site-use potential through planning, design and construction to management support. While working to satisfy tenant needs – which are becoming more diverse with each generation – we also put forward unique solutions to meet the newly-emerging needs of female tenants two-income households, and small households in urban areas. In addition, we propose a wide variety of creative management models, including rental housing that incorporates space for retail outlets, and apartment hotels. We support the inheritance of precious family assets to the next generation and contribute to the local community through quality housing development.
Rental housing management
Maintaining long-term asset value through concerted operations in subleasing, property management, and other fields
Daiwa House provides total support for rental housing management needs through collaboration among specialist operating companies in fields such as subleasing, property management, real estate agency services, and Internet service provision. We work to maintain the attractiveness of rental housing properties even when they are no longer new, improving their added value through renovation work, and proposing the installation of the latest equipment at properties whose vacancy rates are high. We also help improve occupancy rates by extensively advertising rental home vacancies on our website, as well as through real estate agency services.
In overseas markets, we established a local subsidiary in Texas in 2011 and started a rental housing development business, and we are currently operating business in Chicago; Nashville, Tennessee; and Phoenix, Arizona. The number of rental housing units under construction and in operation totals approximately 2,700.
In FY2017, the Waldorf Group, which has managed serviced apartments in Australia and New Zealand for 35 years, joined the Group.

High value-added products tailored to suit unique characteristics of each region
We develop high value-added condominiums throughout Japan, sell the home units, and manage the properties. In this way, we offer home owners a pleasant and safe living environment, and help maintain their asset values over the long term. We leverage the capabilities of the whole Group in developing high value-added condominium projects that make optimal use of each region’s particular characteristics, including multi-use development projects, town and neighborhood planning aimed at urban regeneration, and condominiums targeted at active seniors. Thanks to these initiatives, the number of condominium home units sold by the Group passed 202,000.
In our condominium management business, during the term under review we implemented various initiatives to enhance our long-term maintenance and repair support to condominium residents.
[Principal companies] Daiwa House Industry, Cosmos Initia, Daiwa LifeNext
Meeting the needs of different generations and regions with unique, high value-added condominiums
To provide residences with the levels of safety, security, and all-round livability that our customers are looking for, we offer condominiums matching the particular characteristics of each area of Japan that will maintain their asset value over many years. In our urban renewal projects, we have recently introduced the concept of “area management” – under which the management and development of a neighborhood is principally entrusted to the residents themselves – and have also been developing condominiums targeted mainly at “active seniors,” where residents can continue to live with an easy mind despite their age. In such ways, we develop and market high value-added condominiums that constitute the sort of solid social capital that meets the needs of different generations and regions.
Providing high-quality building management and varied lifestyle support services
In the condominium management field, we offer a comprehensive service encompassing everything from day-to-day maintenance to the long-term planning of building repair. In this way, we support safe, secure, and comfortable lives for all residents. For existing condominiums, the number of which is increasing year by year in Japan, we maintain and improve residents’ asset values through proposals ranging from complete replacement of buildings to renewal of facilities or large-scale repairs. We also enhance resident satisfaction through various ancillary services, including renovation of the individually-owned portions of condominium buildings (home units) and support for the renting out of home units when owners have to relocate.
In our overseas business, we are focusing on China and Australia.
In China, we started the condominium business in 2006 under the banner of "Safety, security, and trust," utilizing know-how and technology cultivated in Japan. High-quality housing and the good environment made possible by the construction of an entire housing development by a Japanese company have made these projects very popular with middle-income and wealthy consumers in the Chinese market. Currently, two projects are under construction in Nantong and Changzhou.
In Australia, two projects undertaken near Sydney were sold out in fiscal 2019. We are also expanding our business into the ASEAN nations, and are currently operating in Vietnam.

Existing Homes Business
One-stop solutions to raise the value of customer assets using our customer base
In our Existing Homes Business, we make maximal use of the Group’s extensive customer base—as well as the proprietary technology and experience we have built up over the years—to provide renovation services centered on regular inspection at appropriate intervals. Our renovation operations are targeted principally at single-family houses, condominiums, and rental housing, and we offer a one-stop service covering everything from initial design to construction. We are also working to expand our business lines, including starting to offer proposals for the renovation and maintenance of corporate-owned properties.
In another initiative to expand our Existing Homes Business, we have also started up a business in which we purchase existing housing, which we then renovate—including the addition of equipment with improved functions to add value—and sell on the general market.
[Principal companies] Daiwa House Reform, Nihon Jutaku Ryutsu, Daiwa House Industry
One-stop service – from design through to final renovation work
For the renovation of single-family houses or condominium units, we make full use of our extensive experience and track record in home building, offering a one-stop service that translates our customers’ dreams into reality and covers everything from initial inquiries through designs to final renovation work. To make it easier to get across the message of our renovation services to users, we have opened three renovation-dedicated showrooms (called Reform Salons) within large-scale public housing projects in the suburbs of cities in the Kanto and Kansai regions, where we promote community-based renovation proposals. We are also expanding our renovation operations in various new areas, such as rental housing – where we make proposals to secure landowners’ asset values – as well as work on the common-use portions of condominiums (exteriors, etc.) and on medical clinics, restaurants, offices, warehouses, and so on. We also perform renovation work on a wide variety of buildings not originally constructed by the Daiwa House Group.
Daiwa House Group's Livness Business
The “Livness” pre-owned real estate business brand
When the owners of single-family houses, rental housing, and condominiums built by Daiwa House sell their homes due to changes in their lifestyles, many of them do not make use of the Company's services. In view of this, in 2018 we introduced "Livness" as a unifying brand for the Group. We have set up a new general contact point for responding to inquiries and requests from customers throughout Japan relating to brokerage services, resale, renovation, and other activities undertaken by Group companies. We also engage in non-housing renovation and conversion operations, such as on commercial and business facilities.
Operations in a wide range of business fields through collaboration among Group companies
Taking full advantage of the resources of the Group—which include a nationwide network of sales offices, expertise as a real estate intermediary, and inspection and renovation skills—we supply a comprehensive one-stop service that meets each customer's needs.
Commercial Facilities Business
Business closely coordinated with the needs of the times
Our Commercial Facilities Business was launched in 1976, when use of automobiles was growing at a rapid pace. It sought to invigorate communities by constructing stores and facilities people need, to encourage more movement.
In this business, based on our unique LOC System, we bring landowners seeking an effective means of utilizing idle land holdings together with prospective corporate tenants seeking sites for new wholesale or retail outlets. Additionally, thanks to the deployment of our extensive land-use database and detailed market surveys, we are winning an increased volume of orders for the construction of a wide variety of facilities that make the most of the particular features of each geographical area. Group companies undertake the development of commercial facilities as a complete package covering everything from planning through construction to leasing, management, and day-to-day operations. We are also involved in the management of business and city hotels.

Retail and wholesale facilities
Leveraging extensive land-use data and ability in planning and proposals to support our customers’ most effective business development
In our retail and wholesale facilities business, we match the needs of landowners seeking more effective ways to utilize their real estate assets with those of prospective corporate tenants seeking to open new business outlets. To do this we employ our proprietary LOC (Land-Owner-Company) System, under which we provide long-term support to both sides.
We utilize our extensive data on land use nationwide, as well as detailed market surveys on the particular characteristics of each site’s location and of the commercial environment in the neighborhood, to offer prospective corporate tenants comprehensive and optimal solutions to their business development needs. In line with our Group vision of "co-creating a brighter future," we will continue to create new businesses that contribute to social development.
Developing attractive commercial facilities to serve as the core of local communities
In the commercial facilities business, we plan and construct commercial facilities (mainly large-scale shopping centers), lease spaces out to tenants, and manage the facilities – all across Japan. We not only ensure the profitability of our facilities by attracting the sort of corporate tenants who can pull in customers, we also seek to create commercial facilities that offer a diverse range of new value and can serve as the core of their respective communities. By proposing the construction and operation of businesses that make the most of the Group’s business resources – such as fitness clubs and business hotels – we aim to develop attractive commercial facilities that meet the particular needs of each local community.
Overseas, we are engaged in a construction contract business in Taiwan. To support the overseas expansion of tenants and industrial companies with whom we have relationships in Japan, we also use the LOC system in Taiwan to comprehensively produce optimal business development through detailed market research on the characteristics of each location and the surrounding environment. In addition, in fiscal 2019 we purchased an existing commercial facility in Texas, and are conducting a local study aimed at attracting Japanese companies to the area.
LOC System (Commercial Facilities Business)
In the LOC (Land-Owner-Company) System, Daiwa House Industry brings together land owners who wish to make more effective use of their real estate holdings, and companies that are looking to open new business centers, thus efficiently meeting the needs of both sides.

Logistics, Business and Corporate Facilities Business
Proposal-based solutions leveraging customer relationships
In the field of Logistics, Business and Corporate Facilities, we are expanding our business both inside and outside Japan by making use of our extensive database on land usage to construct facilities meeting the needs of corporate clients. The business is also contributing to regional employment creation by building logistics facilities utilizing land where special procedures are needed for repurposing.
We also make optimal use of the synergy generated with Group member Fujita to enable flexible responses to customer needs, and are actively engaged in the proposal and construction of facilities in the fields of medical and nursing care facilities, welfare and housing for the elderly facilities, food-processing facilities, offices, and factories. In all cases, our business is driven by proposal-based solutions that optimally leverage our long-term relationships with customers.

Deriving optimal solutions from observation of front-line logistics operations
In the logistics facilities business, we employ our D-Project proprietary business format, under which we meet all our customers’ diverse needs from selection of prime-location sites through the design and construction of facilities, to service operation and building management. In addition to BTS (build-to-suit) logistics facilities*1 for particular tenants, we also construct multi-tenant logestics facilities*2 in prime locations, and both categories of facility are proving popular in the market. Daiwa House has been engaged in logistics facility development right from its founding. We aim to constantly derive advanced solutions from our close observation of actual practice in the front line, to become the logistics facility supplier of choice.
1.BTS = Build-to-suit (logistics facilities customized to each user's requirements)
2.Multi-tenant logistics facilities = logistics facilities designed to cater for a multiple number of tenant companies
Supporting companies’ logistics strategies by building new social infrastructure
The growth of online shopping and corporate globalization are drastically changing logistics needs. In addition to good locations, companies have an increased need for larger, multi-functional facilities. By contracting to handle logistics for several shippers as part of a single-package service, we are able to optimally allocate and use physical resources such as logistics centers, systems and equipment, as well as technologies, offering all goods owners a logistics-sharing service that perfectly meets their needs.
Medical and nursing care facilities
Comprehensive support services from planning through financing to operation
In 1989, anticipating the rapidly developing phenomenon of population aging in Japan, we established the Silver Age Research Center to investigate issues involved in the construction and operation of medical and nursing care facilities. The Center meets customers’ wide-ranging needs by leveraging its specialist know-how to select suitable sites, draw up projects, and consult with governmental bodies. We have developed leading-edge medical facilities under the name of “D’s SMART MEDICAL,” which has been designed to meet the projected medical facility management needs of the next generation. This system incorporates environment-friendly and earthquake-mitigation technologies that ensure the safety and comfort of patients and staff, in addition to business management support. We also began providing the latest industry information through the "D-members" membership website for managers of medical, nursing, and welfare services.
Office and factories
Strengthening relationships with corporate clients to offer comprehensive solutions
In our support services for customers seeking to build networks of offices, factories and other business properties, we utilize our extensive database on land prices and sites available for development to make land-use proposals covering everything from initial surveys through planning, design, and construction to post-completion maintenance. We offer land-use proposals for sites of every scale, and for buildings and other facilities for all kinds of purposes, across the whole of Japan. We leverage the Group’s ability to make comprehensive proposals incorporating solutions that meet all our clients’ needs, and these have proved very popular in the market. They include proposals for eco-friendly offices and factories, for the building of new corporate facilities or relocation of existing ones, and for the rebuilding or demolition of existing properties. With regard to food processing facilities, we offer a total-support service precisely tailored to the needs and scale of each corporate customer, starting from design of the initial business model and looking at the entire supply chain, from fresh food production through processing to marketing.
D’s SMART FACTORY – the future of manufacturing
The construction of D’s SMART FACTORY – a state-of-the-art eco-friendly factory constructed on the grounds of our Nara Factory – has been highly praised for its overall concept as well as the specific technologies incorporated, and has been awarded the Energy Conservation Grand Prize (Practical Application Section)*. In addition to the use of renewable energy sources and the latest environmental protection equipment, the factory also incorporates a "smart management system" enabling all employees to access real-time data relating to energy conservation, productivity, firefighting/accident prevention/disaster mitigation measures, and the factory’s working environment.This system makes possible “visual control” for quick recognition of information, and is one of our contributions to the realization of "next-generation manufacturing."

Employing varied operational methods to realize urban redevelopment
With a history of over 100 years as a general construction company, Fujita Corporation is currently working simultaneously to strengthen earning capacity and further improve quality in its core fields of construction and civil engineering, as well as to provide proactive support for its corporate clients both in their Japanese operations and their aggressive capital investments overseas. Fujita boasts an impressive record in the field of community regeneration and urban redevelopment as a result of its high-level planning and proposal capabilities on a solid base of proprietary construction technology.

In these ways, Fujita works to help bring about a sustainable society.
* Net zero energy buildings combine energy conservation technology with renewable energy generation to achieve a net zero amount of primary energy consumption on an annual basis.
Urban development and industrial parks
Pushing ahead with urban development projects that meet the changing needs of the times, tailored to the differing requirements of each community
The first urban development project undertaken by Daiwa House was the Habikino Neopolis housing complex, completed in 1962, which was also Japan’s first large-scale housing development project by a private-sector company. In 1976 we developed the Okayama Neopolis project – the largest by a private-sector company at that time – and our efforts in other projects were oriented toward creating residential environments where people could live in comfort and also in harmony with nature. We are pooling our efforts to offer urban development projects that meet the changing needs of the times, tailored to the differing requirements of each community, in a single package covering everything from initial planning, site preparation and flood management, through design and construction, to post-completion maintenance. And at all times, we keep uppermost in our minds the need for optimally effective land utilization that will serve the needs of the community far into the future.
Revitalizing regional communities through industrial park development
As a pioneer in the industrialization of construction shortly after its founding, Daiwa House has developed a wide range of industrial parks, taking advantage of the know-how it has built up in the course of extensive experience in the construction of manufacturing plants, logistics facilities, medical treatment and nursing care facilities, offices, and others. Combining the business resources possessed by the Daiwa House Group, we put together proposals for the construction of benefits-package facilities such as company housing and staff dormitories, including the preliminary land preparation work. In close collaboration with local governments, we also contribute to the revitalization of regional economies through measures to attract corporate tenants to our industrial parks.
In our overseas operations, at the moment we are focusing on the member-nations of ASEAN. In Indonesia we are working with local partner companies to develop industrial parks, in which our construction subcontracting and rental factory businesses are highly regarded by many Japanese companies.
We also started the D project (logistics warehouse leasing business) overseas in 2016, and are currently developing warehouses to respond to the overseas expansion of Japanese companies as well as the increase in demand for logistics facilities accompanying the expansion of domestic demand in Indonesia.
In Vietnam, we are operating an industrial park development and rental factory in the suburbs of Ho Chi Minh City with local partners. We provide advice on business planning and support for business operations, mainly to Japanese companies, and create an environment where they can conduct their business with confidence.
Fujita, a consolidated subsidiary of the Company, is engaged in contract work on the construction of factories in ASEAN countries, Mexico, Central and South America, and other areas, mainly for clients in the Japanese auto industry.
Fujita also has a track record of over thirty years in the Chinese market, and has been involved in the construction of production plants for Japanese enterprises in the automotive and electric appliance industries, among others. As such, it occupies one of the highest rankings among Japanese construction companies in the Chinese market.

Parking and carsharing
Generate new value from our clients’ precious land assets through metered parking and carsharing businesses
The Daiwa House Group operates a metered parking lot business, including planning and construction services, under the name "D-Parking." We lease sites from landowners and turn them into pay-by-the-hour parking lots that operate around the clock, providing the owners with a reliable source of earnings from their real estate. We also offer the D-Share members-only carsharing service and the DH Rental Car car-hire service to make the increasing motorization of society more environment-friendly and convenient for individuals.
Leveraging robotics to realize a pleasant working environment and provide a lifestyle enabling people to get older without undue worry
Japan currently faces the serious issue of a dwindling work force, owing to the twin trends of a declining birthrate and a growing proportion of elderly people. Against this backdrop, considerable hopes are being pinned on the use of robotics technology in the workplace. In the Group’s robotics business, we are developing a variety of systems and working to popularize the use of a wide range of robotic equipment. Our goal is to lighten the work load for staff in such fields as medical care and nursing care, as well as workers in factories and on construction sites. Through the use of advanced technologies such as robotics, we aim not only to reduce the risk of physical damage to employees, but also to improve productivity. At the same time, our larger aim is to make use of AI and IoT (the internet of things) to create a community-wide safety net, enabling everyone to live in security.
