Important aspects to note while constructing a vehicular parking system

Important aspects to note while constructing a vehicle parking system for your apartment/building. Even if you are not an expert in construction field, the following information can help you get detailed information on the measurements and points to be covered when a car parking area is built.

The same rules can be followed for a modular car parking system construction method.

Vehicle Dimensions : The common dimensions of a car is as follows:

  • Compact car: 5′ 8″ × 16′ 0″ (1725 × 4875)
  • Standard car: 6′ 6″ × 18′ 0″ (1980 × 5485) – Fig 1-a

Parking Spaces

  • Standard cars: 8′ 6″ to 9′ 0″ (2590 to 2745) x 18′ 0″ to 20′ 0″ (5485 to 6095) – Fig 1-b
  • Compact cars: 8′ 0″ (2440) × 16′ 0″ (4875)
  • Slope 1% to 5% for drainage; 2% to 3% recommended

Where provided, electric vehicle charging stations are to be installed in accordance with NFPA 70 and are to be listed and labeled in accordance with UL 2202 and UL 2594.

Parking Lots

  • 7′ (2135) minimum overhead clearance – Fig 1-c
  • 8% slope – Fig 1-d
  • Transition slope equal to one-half of ramp slope;               10′ (3050) length. – Fig 1-e

Garage Ramps

  • Local, state, and federal laws regulate the number of accessible spaces required.
  • Locate accessible parking on the shortest accessible route of travel to the nearest accessible building entrance.
  • 1:50 maximum slope for spaces and access aisles

Garage ramp dimensions

  • 8′ (2440) minimum width – Fig 2a
  • 5′ (1525) minimum access aisle; may be shared by two accessible parking spaces. – Fig 2b
  • Identify accessible parking spaces with a sign showing the international symbol of accessibility.

  • At least one van-accessible parking space should be provided for every 6 accessible parking spaces required.
  • Van-accessible parking spaces should have a minimum width of 11′ (3350), an access aisle at least 5 (1525)   wide, and a clear height  of 8’2″ (2490).
  • Access aisles for parking spaces and passenger loading zones should be part of the accessible route of travel to the building or facility entrance. – Fig 2c
  • 5′ (1525) minimum access aisle, 20′ (6 m) long, for passenger loading zones adjacent and parallel to the vehicle pull-up space – Fig 2d.
