Wöhr Parking Systems Installs 2 Systems in Liverpool

Wohr is building a triple-deck system providing 72 spaces for Princes Dock's City Lofts apartments, an 11-storey automatic stacking system at the Albany apartments scheme in Old Hall Street creating 84 spaces and is also bidding for Beetham's new West Tower high rise block.
Stacking systems for car parks in the sky could solve Liverpool's parking problems.

Traditional car parks on derelict land are disappearing as plots are snapped up for redevelopment.

German engineer Wohr Parking Systems makes 45 types of parking systems which stack cars, from double decker to multi-storey solutions.

The English agency in Aston, Oxfordshire, is already building two systems at new apartment developments in Liverpool and bidding for another.

But it provides stand-alone car parking solutions in Europe and says there is no reason it could not do the same in Liverpool.

Spokesman Andrew Smith said: "We do many public car parks to provide incredibly dense parking.

"In Budapest, they had a trashy car park so we dug the whole of a piazza out and put over 400 spaces underneath it. The city got a new piazza and extra parking."

He said the most popular system is the double decker, which lowers one car into an underground recess so the second slot fits flush with the ground.

Mr Smith said: "As people get to know about these systems, it has grown like wildfire.

Wöhr is very active in the UK, they also provide 2,700 spaces in London."
