The Benefits of Understanding the Parking Lifecycle
We often think of structured parking as a process that begins with design and ends with the opening of a new facility. However, the parking lifecycle starts at the earliest planning stages of a project, whether expanding a campus, designing an entirely new development, or redeveloping an existing area. Once the facility is complete, proper care and maintenance can significantly improve the user experience, extend its life and reduce future retrofit and repair costs. Understanding the full parking lifecycle not only helps owners integrate parking more effectively, but also make the most out of that investment. During this training, we will discuss parking’s role in master planning, considerations for parking design and the importance of establishing an ongoing maintenance plan.
