We are Nakamura

How can we help?

Businesses and governments trust Nakamura to help them thrive in a world of constant change. Our development of the patented Rescue system during Hurricane Harvey is a good example: its advanced triage and response optimization algorithms were made possible by our pioneering use of natural language processing and stochastic computational mathematical modeling. This project, and the many that followed, established Nakamura’s reputation for excellence in systems engineering.

Founded in 1987 to help construct and deliver some of the world’s most complex energy and infrastructure megaprojects, we have since grown into a truly multidisciplinary engineering and technology organization. Our industry expertise ranges from healthcare and government to fashion & cosmetics and financial services. We work on projects both large and small, from systems engineering to cloud computing and advanced electronics.

By investing in research, we explore new ideas and develop new tools. We have an amazing mix of people with many different talents working together and learning from each other by sharing their knowledge and ideas. Our people are encouraged to think creatively, and challenge accepted practice. All of this helps to ensure that we stay ahead of the market.

We work closely with our clients and collaborators. Sometimes a project requires a team of international experts, whilst at other times a single engineer can make a difference.  Our specialists are involved in all stages of a project: from the initial concept, to the detailed design and tender phase. We are often present onsite as well to implement systems, manage delivery, and ensure that everything is built according to plan.

Through our work, we influence many peoples’ lives, and this pushes us to make a positive difference in the world.
