Ideal Brain aspires to be a solution provider through engineering research. Ideal Brain wants to provide relevant and effective technology to protect buildings. They need to be flexible so that they can adapt to potential damage from various natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons. Ideal Brain aspires to be not only number one but also the only company which provides unique solutions, from the beginning to the end: constraction-utilization-demolistion-recycle.
Starting from The Kobe Earthquake in 1995, Japan entered into an era of frequent earthquakes. Contractors have been making progress in various civil engineering technologies to withstand potential earthquake damage. 20th century was one of mass production, consumption and disposal. Such an era is over and 21st century is one where people and corporations recycle precious resources paying attention to environment.
Ideal Brain's corporate motto is to be free and innovative to be a pioneer in engineering technology. Ideal Brain's desire is to develop products which can coexist with the natural environment.
