Obayashi Corporation’s first introduction to the U.S. market was the Surfrider Hotel project in Hawaii (1967-69). Since then, Obayashi has added Building Construction, Heavy Civil Construction and Real Estate Management to its portfolio of services in the United States. In addition, Obayashi has merged several US/Canada companies which expand our market throughout North America including Canada.

Currently, the consolidated revenue generated by North American operations is over $1.2 billion. By combining technological expertise with local knowledge and state of the art capability, we are creating a synergy for expanding business throughout North America.
