The secret to the successful design, construction, and eventual operation of a parking structure lies in a well conceived functional design. Properly executed, functional design takes into account the following:
- Site dimensions
- Construction systems
- Column grids
- Ramping system
- Vertical transportation cores
It is imperative to match facility user characteristics with the appropriate functional design. Achieving humanized parking structures begins in the programming phase and is developed through the schematic and design development phases.
Ours is a system approach taking into consideration all aspects of functional design including traffic flow, signage and way finding, lighting, security, parking access and revenue control.
