Walker Parking Consultants Presents a Case Study on a Recent Government Parking Facility Project


In 2012, Walker Parking Consultants performed a comprehensive parking planning study at a major Secured Government Facility located in the Commonwealth of Virginia. On this assignment, Walker reviewed current Parking Management Policies, performed a supply/demand study, provided solutions relative to demand deficiencies including evaluating the possibility of expanding the existing garage, analyzed vehicular and pedestrian movements on the compound, and investigated new technologies to help solve parking issues and enhance the end-user's experience.

Walker's presentation will highlight the key aspects of the project
