The Benefits of Hiring a Parking Consultant: Part 1

This article explains the different services and benefits that parking consultants provide. Parking consulting specialists have expertise in parking planning, surveys and studies; parking economic analysis; functional design; environmental impact statements and studies; architectural and/or engineering services; parking revenue control; signage and graphics; design and construction of parking facilities; expert witness services; and traffic studies. The difference between architects or designers and parking consultants is the unique aspect of parking facilities in that they are unlike other buildings in many respects. Yet, parking planning is a crucial function of any airport, campus, commercial development, hospital or downtown area. The article provides a detailed overview of the many areas of expertise that are in large part unique to parking consultants.
