Greetings

The environment surrounding homes is reaching a turning point.
Lifestyle is changing in line with the changes in the world, such as further developments in IT and diversified workstyles. Meanwhile, the severity of Japan's social challenges, such as a declining population, the downturn in new housing starts, and the shortage of carpenters and craftworkers, is intensifying.
Internationally, people's values related to housing have been significantly influenced with accelerated aging especially in China, Taiwan, and ASEAN countries, who have a lot in common with Japan in terms of their needs and social challenges, including industrialization of the construction industry.

Our mission is to bring living spaces that focus on the well-being of people and society to many construction fields globally.

The Housing Systems Business Division promotes synergy by combining the operations of the manufacturing sites and customer touch points. We will accelerate growth through co-creation activities with a variety of partners, including customers, to expand the scope of business and change the conventional boundaries.
By promoting our advantages, we will actively contribute to a wider range of areas, including homes as well as public and commercial facilities, and also living spaces in the world.
The Housing Systems Business Division will continue to provide new value to people and society by staying close to their lives.

Lifestyle Technology Innovations
Vacuum Insulated Glass

Vacuum panel manufacturing technology, which Panasonic has refined in its plasma display TVs over the years, is applied to this thin high-performance insulating glass. With a thickness of 6 mm, the glass has achieved heat insulation performance equal to or greater than that of triple-glazed glass but at approx. 1/5 the thickness.
This thin insulating glass will globally create new demand for heat insulation and make people's lives more comfortable. It can help achieve a sustainable society through its use in homes, commercial refrigerators, and consumer electronics.

Lifestyle Value Innovations
PSJ Method

We are facing a growing shortage of carpenters and other construction workers, and future mainstream housing materials must meet the needs of ZEH (net-zero energy house). The PSJ housing construction method helps to shorten the construction period, reduce needed labor force, and build high-performance homes in pursuit of the industrialization of wooden houses. The use of large wall panels combining posts, beams, structural board material, heat insulation material, and exterior fittings, as well as large roof panels, shortens the construction period, reduces waste material, and ensures stable construction quality while providing solutions that meet social challenges.
