RepairLarge-scale repairs and regulatory inspections of medical and welfare facilities

Large-scale repairs and regulatory periodic building inspections for medical and welfare facilities

The Building Standards Act requires regulatory inspections for special buildings (medical and welfare facilities fall under the category of special buildings).
These inspections serve as a good opportunity for a third party to inspect the condition of the building. While largely conducted due to legal requirements, they can also be thought of as periodic health checkups for the building.
After 10 years of construction, buildings require major repairs. Neglecting seemingly minor defects can lead to unexpected expenses.


Skylive not only designs new buildings, but also actively provides design consulting services for large-scale repairs and renovations of medical and welfare facilities.
We offer our expertise to maintain and manage buildings for as long as possible at the lowest possible cost.

The first step is to create a large-scale repair plan

At Skylive, we start by creating a large-scale repair plan.
Although it depends on the location, the cycle in which large-scale repairs are required is somewhat fixed and can be divided into long-term and medium-term periods. The first step is to understand in advance how much money will be needed and when the survey and diagnosis should be conducted. In addition, unexpected repairs may be required due to natural disasters. Having an overall repair plan allows you to think clearly about how to allocate your limited budget.

Compare quotations for large-scale repairs in an easy-to-understand manner

Quotations for large-scale repairs are very difficult to compare. Why is that?
The answer is simple. It is because different construction companies have different ideas about what repairs are needed.
What should be done before comparing construction costs is a building survey and diagnosis.
You need to clarify the areas that need to be repaired, specify the required specifications, and determine the locations for repairs.
Only after making these decisions and obtaining quotations, accurate price comparisons can be made.
Skylive will start with a building diagnostic survey and prepare the necessary materials to obtain a quotation. By obtaining quotations under the same conditions and scrutinizing the breakdown, you will be able to make fair comparisons.

Consideration for users

During the construction period, the facility is subject to various restrictions. Noise, traffic, light shielding by sheeting, vibration, etc.
Especially in nursery schools, children’s homes, and facilities for persons with disabilities, where children use the facilities, the daily traffic can be hazardous. To ensure safety during the construction period, we collaborate with facility staff to establish traffic routes. For day care facilities, we aim to schedule construction during periods of minimal user activity. For residential facilities, we collaborate closely with the construction contractor to devise a schedule that minimizes user stress from noise and vibration as much as possible.

Post-construction follow-up

Post-construction inspections are also important for large-scale repairs. We conduct inspections at intervals of 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year after completing construction. During these inspections, we request the construction company’s presence to identify and address any defects that may arise over time.

Running cost reduction

Aligned with our large-scale repair plans, we propose strategies to minimize running costs, such as incorporating new electric power sources from an environmental perspective.
From the perspective of a first-class architect specializing in facilities, we can make proposals that also take into account costs and maintenance.

Creating a female-friendly environment

We gather opinions from women who spend more time in condominiums managing household chores, caring for children, and supporting family members, and based on these inputs, we make detailed proposals.
As a company led by a female president, we suggest enhancements to common areas that promote comfortable usage from a female perspective.


Considering the aging population of residents, we will improve the value of the condominium by making it barrier-free, which includes the removal of steps in common areas to improve accessibility and ease of living.

Utilization of subsidies

There are subsidy programs available for condominium renovations depending on the prefecture and municipality. We can help you plan and apply for a subsidy for large-scale renovations.

1: Survey and diagnosis of the entire building (exterior walls, rooftop waterproofing, balconies, etc.)
2: Based on the results of the diagnosis results, determine the necessary repairs and establish specifications
3: Prepare specifications for the work and request quotations from several construction companies
4: Compare and review the quotations to ensure compliance with the specifications
5: Upon selecting a construction company, hold a meeting with their on-site representative
6: Throughout the construction period, monitor progress through regular meetings and conduct visual inspections
7: Upon completion of the work, conduct a final confirmation between our company and the client (on-site visual inspection and confirmation of construction photos)
8: Periodic inspections (check for construction defects) at 3-month, 6-month, and 1-year intervals after the large-scale repair
