APS Benefits

More parking in a safe, secure, sustainable and environmentally friendly manner…

Efficiency

Comparison between a conventional parking lot and a Skyline Automated Parking System. A key factor in parking garage development is always building size. Compared to conventional parking facilities, Automated Parking Systems require an area approximately 70% smaller and a 50% smaller volume on average to park an equivalent number of cars. This gives the parking garage developer lots more options such as adding more parking spaces, utilising more area for non-parking purposes or green spaces, etc.  

Feasibility & Profitability

Car parking and parking garage development often have a direct effect on the feasibility of a real estate project. The design flexibility of Automated Parking Systems like Skyline Parking can help in terms of both feasibility and profitability by enabling parking to be located in areas where conventional parking won't fit. The possible locations for APS are virtually unlimited: above ground, underground, freestanding, underneath or integrated into existing buildings and even very narrow or irregularly shaped areas.  

Eco-Friendliness & Sustainability

Automated Parking Systems can reduce CO2 emissions by 85% or more by eliminating the need for cars to drive and idle while searching for parking spaces. For parking garage development, APS typically require fewer building materials, a much smaller excavation volume, shorter construction time and reduced construction disruption. For the ultimate in sustainability, Automated Parking Systems are most often the least expensive option for underground parking garages.  

Inherent Safety & Security

The safety and security of cars, drivers and pedestrians is always a priority for parking garage development projects. Compared to conventional parking garages, Automated Parking Systems are inherently much safer and more secure because they remove driving and pedestrians from the parking area. No driving means no car damage or possibility of stolen cars. No pedestrians means no need to walk through dim, shadowy parking areas and no opportunity for theft, vandalism or worse.

The primary benefits of automated parking systems compared to conventional multi-story cars parks are:

  • Up to 70% less land area needed

  • Up to 50% smaller building volume

  • Up to 12% ROI

  • Up to 85% fewer CO2 emissions generated by driving

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.”

Skyline APS offer additional benefits for developers, benefits for architects and benefits for urban planners.
