ParkCAD is an advanced CAD software that gives users the right tools to design parking layouts quicker and smarter than traditional CAD methods. With powerful layout, optimization and editing tools, users will increase productivity. Save time and money by reducing time-consuming redrawing of parking layout designs. Planning becomes easier with real-time stall counts and powerful reporting abilities for estimating cost.

Project managers, engineers and technicians involved in consulting with all levels of parking lot design experience can benefit from ParkCAD. Architects, planners, land developers, owners of parking facilities and more, will find ParkCAD invaluable.

Stay on budget, win bids, complete projects quickly and accurately. Make attractive and exciting presentations of ideas, and use powerful tools aimed at efficiency and ease of use.

New Release

What’s New:

  • You can now add in traffic flow arrows with ParkCAD 5.0 to determine the direction of vehicle movement in one-way or two-way traffic.
  • Designers can now visualize vehicle movement and see vehicles entering, circulating around aisles, accessing stalls, and exiting the parking lot.
  • New regional standards have been added to accommodate more global designs.
  • A library of blocks and hatches adds more color and creates attractive looking drawings to help visualize how a parking lot will fit into the larger site plan.


March 21 | Join us for the upcoming release of ParkCAD 5.0. The new version of the leading parking site design software incorporates new innovations to ensure accuracy and to enhance the appearance of your final design.


Think about sustainability when designing parking lots

Parking professionals are tasked to create functional, sustainable parking site designs while balancing costs and optimizing space. One of the benefits of using ParkCAD to optimize land usage is reducing the paving areas to add space for landscaped areas. Natural spaces, such as grass and shrubs, add visual enhancements while absorbing storm water runoff.

Advantages of Using ParkCAD

Design parking lots in minutes, not hours. ParkCAD provides a comprehensive solution that allows users to:

  • Design parking layouts with minimal training
  • Create parking layouts within an area or generate individual rows
  • Create designs that conform to regulations.
  • Design faster and more accurate layouts over basic CAD drafting
  • Create efficient use of land with parking optimization tools.
  • Quickly create multiple design concepts.
  • Calculate requirements for accessible parking.
  • Present parking layouts in a realistic and exciting way
  • Accommodate other custom parking needs with guidelines that can be created, saved, and applied to other projects.
  • Use current CAD platform without the need to convert file types or upload files to an external server.
  • Consider traffic flows to create efficient parking lot movement
  • Prepare projects to be BIM-ready by adding SITE CEM’s 3D modeling capabilities such as 3D curbs and sidewalks, drainage pipe networks, site grading, and more.

ParkCAD Features

ParkCAD has the ability to assign unique treatments (Concrete, Landscape, Painted) to custom or standard islands. Each island treatment is assigned its very own layer and can be independently reported in construction cost estimations.
Let ParkCAD solve the parking puzzle of which row layout, row rotation, and shifted row position produces the maximum number of parking spaces within the parking boundary; a historical list grows as different test iterations are performed.
