Thank you for your visit.

Maeda Laboratory research is mainly about developing structures that are safe and resistant to earthquakes and other disasters.As well as, maintaining and developing the environment-friendly standards for buildings and cities.

Our researches are focusing on various building systems such as, high performance reinforced concrete structures, timber buildings for nonindustrial using (CLT), masonry infill-walls building in cooperation with some foreign countries.

Researches places differ from Sendai/Miyagi to all Japan and even overseas.

Our laboratory has a diverse range of collaborative research networks which include, in addition to the local researchers and universities, international researchers and universities as well as construction companies, consultants and design offices.
