ParkCAD provides users with superior control and flexibility to help make parking project tasks easier. For engineers and architects, designs of initial parking area configurations to determine feasibility and aesthetics can be used right through to the final development phase.

Discover how the latest ParkCAD release compare for quickly planning and designing parking sites of virtually any size and shape.

Compare Versions
Parking Site Optimization 4.0 3.0
SmartL.O.T® Process utilizes space for maximum parking capacity and quickly test different parking scenarios to meet aesthetic, design, and functional needs
Calculate a site’s maximum parking capacity by automatically processing different row layouts, row rotations, and shifted row positions
Minimize the parking site footprint area by updating the lot to move in the perimeter boundaries
Parking Exclusion Area – define where parking should be excluded. Ideal for structures, drive aisles, landscape area, and entrance/exit placements
Save, manage, update, and recall multiple parking site design iterations in the review of different parking studies, proposals, or LEED requirements
Parking Site Designing 4.0 3.0
Make changes to the perimeter and interior parking row types using different confirmations including: Flat; Arrow; Bumper-to Bumper Interlock; Herringbone Interlock
Use national and regional parking standards guidelines
Use national parking standards and accessibility parking international standards for ADA, DETR, AFNOR, etc
Use aisle construction lines to check the area required for vehicle parking maneuvers
Distribute extra drive aisle space by applying center paths (as walkways or green space) to rows
Maximize Lot – set row angles and shifting increments to complete a parking capacity study
Support of arcs in lot boundaries for use in the creation of perimeter rows and curved access and internal drive aisles
Parking Site Elements (Rows, Stalls & Islands) 4.0 3.0
Create parking rows dynamically between two selected points
Snap parking rows to the perimeter edge or to other rows
Extend, trim or join parking rows to an intersection with connecting islands
Add  pedestrian interior walkways within a parking row
Design custom stall standards and assign symbols/colors for types of use  
Make dynamic changes to stall angles and dimensions (width; depth)  
Add and remove stall numbers from perimeter stalls or interior parking rows  
Generate mid-islands and end islands along a parking row  
 Set design parameters for mid-islands and parking islands (radius, width , depth, shape, etc.)    
Mix small and large vehicle stalls on the same row to meet total parking stall
 Choose different parking island treatments (Concrete; Landscape; Painted; Unassigned) for use in general lot design and cost estimating  
Reporting Features 4.0 3.0
Quantity Takeoff Report – Detail linear footage areas and quantities of parking objects (islands, stalls, etc) with costs assigned for estimates
Stall Count Report – View, save, and share a summary report of numbers and percentages of standard, accessibility, and user-defined stalls
Create reports of custom created island perimeters and areas based on the individual treatment
View a summary report of parking standards used, quantities, and areas for selected objects
Define a group of parking rows or lots as a site to aid in reporting or for percentage requirement calculations for accessibility parking
