Technology and modular build making impact felt

How can increased capacity at NHS car parks offer solutions, and not problems? Hospital car parking is a complex and multi-faceted issue. James Fildes, from Berry Systems, looks at how parking solutions can adapt and adjust for future demands.

How can increased capacity at NHS car parks offer solutions, and not problems? Hospital car parking is a complex and multi-faceted issue. Approaches to modernise parking solutions must take into account the needs of the future, and develop appropriate and efficient ways to control throughput and overflow. Paul Eaton, Marketing and Business Development, at Berry Systems, looks at how parking solutions can adapt and adjust for the demands of future generations. 

As we all know, car parking at NHS sites is a constant issue. Whether it’s concerns about capacity, throughput, or simply the management of the site itself, demand always seems far higher than can be reasonably dealt with. Independent surveys show that at peak visitor times, there are currently up to 72 visitors queuing to wait for a space at hospital sites.

 A previous project to extend staff parking facilities for Colchester Hospital saw Berry’s specialist knowledge and expertise utilised. The project was ideally suited to a single-storey modular system, which adequately met the hospital’s increased need for staff parking, and still provides the flexibility to add further levels if required.
