Building a parking garage is anenormous decision for both owner and investors alike. The design and construction of a multiple level parking garage requires many skills and labor trades. While the idea of building a garage can seem overwhelming, finding a qualified parking garage company for the job can drastically assist in generating building solutions and answering questions that arise. Working in conjunction with a qualified parking garage firm can help by accurately predict the duration of a construction schedule.It can often be difficult to determine a completion date and budgeting costs for such a large scale project when working with multiple organizations. In recent years, some construction firms have been implementing a building method called design-build where they are responsible for everything in the project. This method alleviates responsibility from the owner and allows the firm to generate a more accurate bid for the project.

Rarely are there price fluctuations and additional expenses with this method since all the details are hammered out before the single contract is drawn up. The construction company works closely with their own certified engineers to choose the correct materials for each project. Depending on the climate of the garage’s location, there may be slight chemical variations in the building components that can add to the lifespan of the structure. Advanced materials can include a variety of high performance concretes, fiber-reinforced polymers, geo-synthetics, high-strength steels and other compound additives for weather proofing. One issue addressed in initial stages of design is determining the correct car capacity in the available area. Astute engineers will accurately analyze the operational space and calculate how many cars can fit in the structure while making sure all safety and regulatory policies are met. Taking this extra step and time in the design process can greatly leverage the real estate’s space as well as help maximize the total revenue of the parking facility over the next several decades. The blueprints will optimize the functionality of the parking garage, increasing traffic inflow and outflow efficiency. Additionally, an experienced construction company should be able to effectively consolidate both design and building processes of the parking structure, as well as handle other responsibilities such as gathering the local building permits, ordering the necessary materials and supervising the labor. Having a single source accountable for all activities in the work site can greatly enhance quality control.
