ParkCAD + AutoTURN | Optimizing Commercial Parking Lot Design with Loading Bay Access


Optimizing supermarket parking lot designs to ensure easy access to loading bays can be challenging.

Parking lot layouts for open developments are generally simple to plan – however, mapping out sites for existing developments can prove to be a challenge especially in terms of planning the entrances and accessibility stalls. Though the procedure may be automated with certain tools, it is essential to design parking lots correctly to achieve optimal operational and safe use for the space available, avoiding any potential issues.

In this webinar, we will design a few layouts based on a two parking lot perimeter, as well as discuss the rationale behind these. You will learn:

  • An easier process to customize parking stalls that match local guidelines or special conditions
  • How to recreate an existing condition to assess # of  stalls and look for potential optimization
  • Ways to analyze clearances in 3D for truck loading areas
