Asahi Kasei Construction Materials Corp., beset by a faked construction-records scandal, says a worker who fabricated data for pilings beneath a tilting condominium in Yokohama manipulated figures for at least eight other facilities nationwide.

The facilities include a business hotel in Aichi Prefecture, a public housing project in Saitama Prefecture, an elderly care home in Ishikawa Prefecture and a city-owned facility in Nagano city.
