Park Assist, recently merged with TKH Security, has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Marassi Galleria, Eagle Hills’ latest development project located within Marassi Al Bahrain. Marassi Galleria is a 200,000-square-meter shopping mall, operated by Emaar, that will house a myriad of world-renowned vendors and set a new standard for the retail experience throughout the region. Slated to be the defining centerpiece of the development, the mall will be a mid to high-end lifestyle shopping center extending to the beach. Marassi Galleria will host five interconnected districts, each with a theme tailored to a specific customer taste: the high-street, the Family Plaza, a Waterfront Dining Promenade, an animated rooftop and The Luxury Courtyard. It will be the largest mall in Bahrain and the first TKH Security (Park Assist) project with Eagle Hills.
While Eagle Hills first planned to install an ultrasonic system at this facility, the proprietary M4 PGS proved to be the superior alternative, offering a cost-effective, advanced-tech, customer-centric solution. With the customer experience top-of-mind, the camera-based M4 smart-sensor system provides increased functionality and flexibility for future upgrades while offering patrons a world-class experience from the moment they arrive.
The digital wayfinding signage will help quickly steer visitors to available parking spaces. As visitors arrive at the garage, exterior and entryway signage show real-time vacancy counts for each facility level. After entering, interior wayfinding signage and directional in-aisle pointers provide follow up parking guidance, helping guests make quicker decisions about where to park.
The state-of-the-art M4 PGS then directs visitors to available parking spaces. The patented, camera-based technology guides visitors to vacant bays using color-coded smart-sensors. The sensors’ LED lights are triggered to change from red to green when spaces become available, removing confusion from the parking journey, saving visitors time searching for open bays, and ensuring a smooth flow of traffic.
“TKH Security (previously Park Assist) is excited to be working on such an iconic project, further solidifying our position as the only next-generation camera-based Parking Guidance System deployed in the Kingdom of Bahrain. This project would not have been possible without our local partner, Mantech, and we are thrilled to be working with them again.” Said Adam Fitzgerald, Regional Manager – MENA.
This will be the fourth camera-based parking guidance installation in Bahrain, all of which are Park Assist systems. Partnering with Mantech Commercial services company, design work is well underway, and the installation is due to begin in February 2021.
