Two renovated car parks shortlisted for EPA awards
Renovation is often a better solution than a new build. At Q-Park, we’re not afraid to make structural changes where necessary so the renovated facility meets our high standards all round.
Two of Q-Park’s recently renovated objects have been shortlisted for the prestigious EPA awards.
Renovation is often a better solution than a new build. Space for construction in inner-city areas is limited, while reusing existing resources not only makes sound economic sense, it’s also cheaper and better for the environment.
Q-Park has become expert in applying its high standards to existing facilities. Refurbishing a parking facility is more than applying a new coat of paint. At Q-Park, we’re not afraid to make structural changes where necessary so the renovated facility meets our high standards all round. Renovating an existing parking facility also means less disruption for those living and working in the vicinity. If at all possible, we keep a parking facility open while work is carried out.
We ensure our signature features are present in renovated parking facilities. These include changes for:
easy access thanks to ANPR
contactless parking transactions for season ticket holders, and those pre-booking or using the Q-Park app
wide one-way driving aisles and larger parking bays
well-lit areas with glass and clear lines of sight
glass features to increase a sense of safety, such as doors and walls
lifts and wide stairs
clear pedestrian routing
spaces for parents with children and people with reduced mobility (PRMs) located near pedestrian exits and lifts
energy-saving LED lighting with smart controls
one-way traffic reduces emissions
angled bays and dynamic signage mean motorist quickly find a vacant space
EV charging points
integration in a city-wide mobility plan
facilities for bicycle parking
mobility sharing schemes
