Advanced Hospital Parking Solutions

Hospital parking constraints can negatively affect patient care, productivity, costs and much more. Automated Parking Systems help to minimize these challenges.

Hospital Parking History

Built in lightly-developed areas decades earlier, many hospitals now find themselves tightly surrounded by densely-populated urban areas. The communities they serve have often more than tripled in population and any available land must be used to expand medical facilities. However, the demand for hospital parking grows as the population and hospital staff increases.  

Conventional multi-story parking garages and parking lots require a lot of land but waste much of it as well. APS, on the other hand, can park more than twice the number of cars in the same area as a typical parking garage and park more than nine times as many cars as a typical parking lot.

Real Hospital Parking Problems

The trade-off between using land for healthcare facilities and car parking is a difficult one. Hospital parking affects profitability, staff, patients and visitors. A lack of readily available hospital parking leads to problems for the hospital and its patients. These problems include missed appointments, delays in giving and getting care, lost time, extra work and travel, reduced productivity, etc. Moreover, forcing visitors and staff to park off-site creates another set of problems:

  • Shuttle buses have to run to-and-from remote parking sites 24/7 365 days a year
  • Visitors have to find on-street or public parking facilities •    This may require long walks through unfamiliar neighborhoods (even at night)
  • Nearby residents become unhappy about staff and visitors parking on streets
  • It’s more difficult for patients to visit if they have a disability
  • Visitor and staff safety may be compromised

APS for Hospital Parking

Skyline Automated Parking Systems provide more parking in less space. They offer inherently superior personal safety and car security compared to conventional solutions such as parking garages, parking lots, on-street and remote parking. They also make it as easy and convenient as possible for people with a disability to park.

One of the most significant benefits of an automated parking system over a conventional car park is an easier and more cost-effective construction process. Thanks to the use of automation to park cars, less space is required to accommodate the needs of people, resulting in a smaller building volume. In addition, pre-fabricated building materials can be put together in record time, greatly simplifying the construction process and saving money at the same time.

We’re entering a new age of green and eco buildings. Those seeking a luxury lifestyle no longer have to compromise on their environmental impact as the world’s most sustainable residential tower is announced. The Beacon is a 17-storey tower that is to be built in Hemel Hempstead by Lumiere Developments.
Imagine life without energy bills: not only saving money but avoiding all those hours trawling through comparison websites in search of the cheapest deal. That is the promise of a new building that the developer claims will be the world’s most sustainable residential tower. The Beacon in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, will provide “free energy for life” for the residents of its 272 flats in 17 storeys.
The high rise is going green. It seems hard to believe that a tall, hulking block made from huge amounts of material and consuming huge amounts of energy could ever be anything other than bad for our fragile environment. Yet conventional wisdom is being challenged by architects and scientists who are attempting to foster a new breed of “eco towers”.  
Despite their futuristic appearance, Automated Parking Systems (APS) are by no means a new concept. Indeed, the earliest reference to something akin to an automated parking system was the Garage Rue de Ponthieu constructed in 1905. The system consisted of a lift in the center of the structure to move cars up one or two floors where attendants on the floors would park the cars… Read more about today’s urgent need for APS.

Article from the British Parking Association magazine: Reach for the Sky
“The British Parking Association (BPA) is the premier parking trade association in the United Kingdom and has been in existence for over 50 years. It represents all key companies in the UK parking industry and advises and guides parking Consultants, Operators and Developers on legislation, products, services and strategic parking issues. It also represents the UK parking industry in advising the British Government on legislation, standards and strategic transport planning in addition to providing support and advice to parking Investors and corporate bodies. Parking News is a monthly publication that is the main communication method of the BPA and has a wide circulation, both in the United Kingdom and internationally. It is distributed in both electronic and hard copy format and is well respected for its views and opinions on the UK industry in particular but also across Europe. In discussion with the BPA, it became clear that there was a low level of familiarity and understanding of automatic parking systems and in particular a lack of knowledge of the latest technologies. The idea grew that their readership, as key representative of the parking industry, should have an understanding of APS – it’s technology, features and the potential benefits it could offer their clients. So came the opportunity for Skyline Parking to be the first APS company ever to write a detailed editorial for the magazine as an expert in the field of APS. This represents a key milestone in building market awareness of APS in the UK (and Europe) and, most importantly, positioning Skyline Parking as the industry expert and leader in its field.”
