Making surface car parks and hard standings work harder
Surface car parks in towns and cities are essential to modern living, and as car use continues to grow so will demand for parking.
Delivering sustainable car parking solutions aligned to the needs of individual communities and road users is a continuing challenge for car park owners and operators.
Housing demand and the requirement for urban building land, close to where people want to work, is a growing issue. Maximising revenue 24/7 for a facility that will often be closed or empty overnight when motorists have gone home, is another.
So how can you make your car parks work harder?
- Maximise your revenues 24/7?
- Make better use of your land?
- Improve perceptions for your business?
- Add value while retaining your core business
- Provide additional services such as electric car charging
Building car parks underground is a costly option. But what if you could install low cost high-quality housing units above existing surface car parks and keep almost all the original parking spaces?
Instant housing but preserving your core business
The zero carbon ZEDpod is a prefabricated micro home with a difference, offering almost instant high-quality housing solutions without the land and planning issues associated with conventional new build. Enabling you to quickly capitalise on air rights above your assets.
