The Press-in Principles Allows Consolidation with the Earth, Forming Resilient Structure
The implant method is a construction method that involves hydraulically pressing structural members that have the frame and base as one into the ground using a static load, to build persistent structures (Implant Structure) that are integrated with the earth. Every one of the structural members produced at the plant has high rigidity and quality, and depending on the size of the material and penetration depth into the ground, demonstrates high rigidity against external forces in the vertical and lateral directions, to form a persistent structure.
The implant method saves space and allows early building of structures without temporary work, by simply pressing structural members produced at the plant into the earth from above the ground. Through a simple and rational construction method using compact system equipment that minimizes the range of impact of the work, and high quality structural members, the changes to the topography are minimized and the environmental impact is kept to a minimum when building structures. Moreover, moving or removal can be done with ease by extracting structural members, and so this is a construction method that embodies function-oriented structures in line with a recyclable life cycle, such as reusing removed materials for another purpose.
