There are often several options for providing parking on a site. The appropriate solution will depend on the type of project and factors such as:
- Parking demand & vehicle types – these will determine the total parking area required
- Site dimensions & planning controls – these will determine the shape and height of parking areas
- Land value – will determine whether parking can be underground, elevated or stacked.
Parking should be considered early in the design process as it impacts on so many elements of a building, including access, street frontages and structural grids.
