Asahi Kasei Corp has confirmed that its subsidiary Asahi Kasei Construction Materials Corp fabricated piling data in 360 buildings, or 10% of all the piling work done by the company in the past 10 years.
Asahi Kasei revealed on Tuesday that 61 employees of Asahi Kasei Construction Materials had fabricated data in 360 out of 3,052 building projects since 2005, Sankei Shimbun reported.
The 360 buildings include 73 in Tokyo, 53 in Hokkaido, 36 in Kanagawa Prefecture and 31 in Saitama Prefecture. Among them are schools, medical and welfare facilities, and community centers, company officials said.
So far, only one building -- a tilted condo in Yokohama -- has been found to be defective.© Japan Today
