Parking
The Parking section of the Site Characteristics panel describes the amounts of parking by type included in the Component.
Parking section of Site Characteristics panel
Internal/structured parking area. The total area dedicated to internal or underground parking, which is defined as parking that is located in garages within the structure of a building. This area is not accounted for as building area. The value is tethered to the number of internal/underground parking spaces and the assumed area per space.
Surface parking spaces. The number of surface parking spaces, and assumed area per space. These values are tethered to the surface parking area value in the Site Coverage section. If either the surface parking area or number of spaces is edited, the other number is adjusted accordingly. Note that, depending on the parking condition (e.g., parking lots vs. individual spaces on a property), the assumed area per surface parking space can be inclusive of drive aisle area.
Structured parking spaces. The number of parking spaces in a standalone structured parking garage, and assumed area per space. If any number of structured parking spaces are specified, a value for structured parking site area (equivalent to the footprint of a parking structure) should also be specified. The assumed area per structured parking space should include drive aisle area.
Note that structured parking can either be bundled with a building within a Component, or accounted for separately as a standalone Component.
Internal/Underground parking spaces. The number of internal or underground parking spaces, which are defined as parking located in garages within the structure of a building or underground, and assumed area per space. The value is tethered to the total area for internal/underground parking.
