International Experience in the Area of Car park-renovation

Parking garages are properties with a long life-cycle. Why is it that the requirements they must comply with keep changing all the time?
The average life-cycle of mobile goods like cars is only at about one tenth of the useful period of the building. Any technical changes made to vehicles concerning the type of drive (gas, diesel, natural gas, electricity), average size (width, height, weight) or type of use (singles with MicroCars, families with MiniVans or SUVs) directly influence the use of the parking garage building. These changes to vehicle use may become a considerable problem for investors and operators if they do not react to these changes quickly enough.

Because of this, parking garage renovations must consider not only maintenance but also changes to the general conditions. Prognostic and sustainable planning can lead to great savings. Some particularly good examples for the adaptation of garages throughout Europe are granted the popular EPA Award for renovated parking garages. Technical advances and international networking help to quickly catch up with current developments and to avoid mistakes.

Use the chance to employ a large number of leading European experts on the EPA Congress in Vienna between 23 and 25 September 2009. The EPA Congress takes place every two years. Use the chance to expand your technical knowledge and to make contacts in a perfect environment in the congress town of Vienna.
