Outline

The former head office building of Komatsu Seiren was renovated with the world's first seismic reinforcement that uses the CABKOMA Strand Rod, a thermoplastic carbon fiber composite, as the seismic reinforcing material. The use of textiles as building materials was also proposed -- including the "greenbiz" ultrafine porous spongy ceramic base, which is an eco-friendly building material. As a result, the building was recreated as the "fa-bo" fabric laboratory.
