Our origins in parking go back to 1983 when our Parking Solutions Division was known as Carl Walker, Inc. Today, the Division offers a wide range of parking solutions such as structural engineering and functional design, master planning, feasibility and financial studies, architecture, design-build, restoration and preservation, and technical assessment.
WGI’s Parking Solutions Division has a long and successful history assisting airports in effectively managing their parking, expanding parking supply, and maintaining their parking structures. Our parking planners can help your airport assess parking demand for short-term, valet, long-term, and economy parking and project revenue based on alternative parking rates and parking supply. Our parking operations consultant also assists with preparation of parking operator and/or valet operator RFP’s and the selection process, as well as providing management and operational reviews, parking master plans, and parking expansion feasibility studies.
We also specialize in designing airport parking structures that have unique characteristics including express ramps; integration of designated short-term, long-term, frequent traveler, ground transportation, and rental car parking areas; rental car counter and office facilities; and pedestrian accommodations considering family travel, luggage, and security. Airport parking structures tend to include robust technology for revenue control, license plate inventory, pay by mobile, parking guidance systems, and sustainability features. We bring our vast experience and cutting-edge expertise in all technological applications to each of our airport clients.
Beyond planning and design, we know that maintaining parking structures at airports is a challenge as many cars are parked overnight and for long periods of time. We understand the importance of maintaining ongoing parking revenue during parking structure maintenance programs and how to most effectively phase construction activity to minimize disruption and maximize user convenience. Our initial parking structure condition assessments, development of capital improvement plans, and preparation of construction documents for repair are based on experience with thousands of parking projects. During construction, we will represent your airport to help assure the contractor provides quality work in conformance with our contract documents.
