Innovative Car Parking Solutions

Car parking technologies for a more crowded world

New Car Parking Solutions

Automated Parking Systems (APS) aren't really a new concept, as mechanical parking systems have been around in various forms for nearly 100 years. APS, however, do provide parking solutions to meet the challenges of today. Scarce land, personal safety, vehicle security, environmental protection and sustainable design are just some of the parking design challenges we’re facing in this day and age.

Inherently Better Solutions

Their basic concept makes APS, like Skyline's, inherently better parking solutions compared to conventional parking solutions such as car parks, parking garages and parking lots. The Automated Parking System concept of is a simple one: remove drivers and driving from the parking process. This enables APS to use less land, materials and energy, whilst being safer, more secure and more sustainable. 

Being "inherently better" means a parking solution has permanent and inseparable attributes that are not "built-in" or "added on". It means eliminating or minimizing rather than controlling undesirable or hazardous attributes.

Inherently Safer Parking Solutions

Conventional car parking areas represent ideal targets for robbery, car and property theft, and worse. They often have multiple entrances and exits with dim, shadowy places to hide. Fences, access systems, cameras, sensors, increased lighting and security patrols are typical safety measures added to conventional parking areas. All of these measures tend be expensive, yet they can fail or be defeated. 

The inherently-safer parking solution offered by Automated Parking Systems is a simple one: eliminate all people from the car-parking area. Preventing drivers, passengers, pedestrians and criminals from accessing the parking area completely eliminates crime. The APS parking area is part of a mechanical system that moves swiftly, automatically and without warning –not a place for people!

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.”
