The Automated & Mechanical Parking Association (AMPA) held its annual meeting Sunday, March 7th in Chicago.
This organization is made up of automated parking manufacturers, parking consultants and other related companies. Its purpose is to a) serve the public by providing safe and reliable alternative solutions to urban parking needs, and b) facilitate the growth and prosperity of the automated and mechanical parking industry.
Recently members of the association worked with NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) to successfully incorporate the needs of the automated parking industry into international fire codes.
They are currently working on code change proposals for the IBC (International Building Code).
