Since the end of 2018 we have been providing, in addition to our 2D drawings, BIM-enabled and scalable 3D models of our car parking systems, once downloaded these can be integrated directly into the planning process.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a planning method for depicting buildings, with all the relevant information, over the course of their entire life cycle using a consistent, digital building model. This improved exchange of information between all parties involved in the planning process helps to achieve relevant objectives more quickly and accurately.
BIM has many benefits: rather than gathering new information when planning each individual building project, as with conventional methods, the data is constantly expanded throughout the project life cycle. This provides clear added value for revisions, calculations and collision checks in particular. Specialists benefit from the information which their project partners have already gathered, removing the need for them to re-enter or duplicate it. BIM also noticeably reduces the possibility of manual errors during data entry. The data is handled within a central building model, which is continuously updated during the planning process. Thus all parties in the project can make informed decisions on the basis of the same, sound data.
The first models available are the Parklifts 450 and 405, and the Combilifts 551, 552, 542 and 543. These are the most popular models of mechanical and semi-automatic parking systems.
The impetus came from the more advanced BIM countries of Norway, the Netherlands and Great Britain, where this method is already an integral part of all planning activities. In Germany, public-sector projects usually require the use of BIM. This is where WÖHR Autoparksysteme GmbH was also responding to its customers’ wish for a modern planning tool which allows architects and planners to insert a parking system into a 3D building model at the touch of a button. By implementing the concept of BIM within the company, WÖHR has taken a major step into the digital future.
With one download you will get a complete parametric model with all possible configurations which will make your planning much easier.
Architects who take advantage of this will have a model complete with parameters which can display all the possible configurations. The Parklift 450 alone can be configured in 188 different ways. The model is fully scalable without entering any additional data. It also contains a vehicle profile for performing collision checks. Planners can view the parking system’s technical data immediately in the BIM model.

Since 1959, WÖHR has had a vision for simple and space-saving parking. Today our family-run company offers the world’s largest range of in-house developed parking solutions – from classical systems with two vehicles parked over each other all the way to large projects with 1000 and more parking spaces in automatic parking systems.
These days, our competent and reliable solutions are more in demand than ever before. Increased urbanization and lack of construction sites necessitate intelligent parking solutions which offer the greatest possible number of parking bays in the smallest possible space and at the same time preserve the cityscape – as cities become denser, parking must also become denser.
Hence, WÖHR’s core competence is in customer-specific, project-related solutions for more parking sustainability. Because the more compressed we develop our parking solutions, the more space is preserved for public, planted spaces.
Our sales network in more than 60 countries supports us in fulfilling customer wishes, not only quickly but also exceptionally reliable. WÖHR is your partner for intelligent, sustainable and economical parking solutions!
