Architecture & Structural Engineering
Parking architecture requires a thorough understanding of vehicle types, vehicle dimensions and tolerances. Having knowledge of the geometrics of vehicle navigation in a structure combined with human perception and operating limitations while traveling in a parking garage is essential. Successful parking facility design is a specialty that requires architects and engineers with specific expertise in parking requirements, large building architecture and experience with multiple construction techniques.
With experience designing over 150 parking structures, SPS understands that the varied needs of parking patrons influence the configuration of parking elements. Hospital patrons may need additional room to exit vehicles and enter vertical transportation areas. Retail patrons desire close proximity to their destination store via multiple connection points. Office patrons are focused on office entrance convenience. Hotel guests need clear and frequent signage. Each of these parking behaviors is addressed with subtle design modifications for a successful parking structure.
Parking facilities are not only functional areas where drivers park and become pedestrians, but they are also opportunities to create a first impression. Therefore, the design of a parking facility is an important component of the “front door” to a development.
