Parking lots may be the most regularly used outdoor space. It is the gateway through which occupants, customers, visitors or employees pass before they enter a facility. The parking lot’s design establishes a “first impression” and sets a tone of the overall atmosphere to the user is something that designers don’t always emphasize. They can also be planned to act as a variety of other uses once business hours are over, potentially being much more than temporary storage for cars. It can be an event space allowing people to gather, connect and/or relax.
Designing a parking lot like the one described above can be stressful, tedious, and time-consuming because it needs to be functional, aesthetically pleasing, safe and accommodating all users. Traditionally, solving these all these challenges with just one attempt is almost impossible, but with Transoft Solutions’ CAD-based parking lot design software, ParkCAD, you can efficiently create a functional and sustainable parking site while balancing costs and optimizing space in a fraction of the time.
