The new building is scheduled to be used by approximately 4,700 people belonging to organizations, such as the Global Innovation Unit, that are involved in the creation of innovation, including the development of cutting-edge technologies and new business development at NEC. By making use of NEC's diverse assets, the company aims to become a forum for "creating knowledge" by interacting with startups and partners around the world and creating social value through open innovation.
Visitors will be welcomed at an open main entrance on the second floor, and the fifth to twelfth floors will have have an atrium structure in the center with an interior staircase to provide opportunities for interaction and communication among users. In addition to office floors, the building will also have a floor for evaluation experiments and demonstrations, a floor for joint research and development with partners, and a floor for events and networking. Moreover, as a flagship building for work style reform, a "Communication Hub" will be provided as a forum for collaboration with team members throughout the building, as well as an "Innovation Hub" where individuals from inside and outside the company can gather and a variety of digital technologies, such as facial recognition, will be installed.
As part of efforts to achieve carbon neutrality and promote energy conservation, the building will feature methods for taking advantage of solar power generation from the roof, geothermal heat, efficient natural ventilation using the atrium and natural lighting through sunlight from skylights. Furthermore, NEC plans to optimize control using various sensors, including lighting control from motion sensors and illuminance sensors, human flow and radiation temperature detection control using image sensors, and ventilation control using real-time occupancy detection.
As a countermeasure against disasters, the building will adopt a seismic isolation structure and a machine/equipment arrangement that does not impair the building's functions, even with a flood height of 2.6m.
As a key measure of NEC's Mid-term Management Plan 2025, the company is promoting "Smart Work 2.0" work style reform in order to create an environment in which organizations and individuals can perform at their best and enhance job satisfaction by following NEC's Code of Values(1).
