One component of LEED 2009 for New Construction covers maximizing open space in site development. Several strategies given include tuck-under parking and sharing parking facilities with neighbors.
Many architects and developers are also looking at automated parking garages as a strategy for better space utilization. A Robotic Parking Systems garage reduces the space needed for parking by up to 50%. The space created can be used for more green areas to help meet LEED requirements or for other design features that can benefit the project and the community.
In summary, a Robotic Parking Systems (www.roboticparking.com) garage offers:
– better space utilization
– opportunities for more green space
– less pollution
– lower overall operating / maintenance costs
– lower liability insurance
– the highest possible level of security for individuals
– better care and safety of vehicles
– the convenience of valet parking without the valet
– complete flexibility in the design of the facade can increase aesthetics and allows the garage to blend with any neighborhood or project.
