Parking Structures

This book will never make any best seller list, but if your job includes maintaining a parking ramp then this book is not to be missed. It gives complete detail on planning, design, construction, maintenance, and repair of parking ramps in a way that anyone with a smidgeon of technical knowledge can read and understand. It shows what can go wrong due to weather and time and how to repair the problems. It explains mechanical and electrical systems that keep parking ramps functional. It offers insight into how parking structures are designed and built in words anyone can comprehend. In all this book is a necessity if you need to manage a parking system from a maintenance perspective. The ramp that I'm responsible for is less confusing to me now that I have this book to serve as my guide.

Foremost authority in parking.

This book is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to all the important issues involved in parking today. There is no other publication for parking structures in the markert place today that comes in a close secom If you think the design of parking structures is simple and straightforward -- think again! Only those who have never designed a parking structure (or did a mediocre, botched job of one) would think that it's easy. Don't kid yourself. The issues are numerous and difficult in all areas: architectural, structural, maintenance, restoration and functional. The book delves in depth in many of these areas. The true value of the book lies in its ability to prepare you to ask intellegent questions. You will be in position to participate in the planning process of a new parking structure and you will understand criteria that go into design decision making. Reading this book will NOT make you an expert. Only years of practical experience will do that for you. Architects, engineers and various other kinds of consultants who "dabble" in parking structures are RANK AMATURES and should be avoided by anyone considering professional services for parking structures.
