CPP Wins 2010 Award for Excellence in Design for Elder Street Car Park
The Parking Association of Australia (PAA) presented the 2010 Awards for Excellence at the APC10 Gala Dinner in Sydney on 8 November 2010. Awards were presented in the following categories technical, innovation, management and design. City of Perth Parking (CPP) won the design award for Elder Street car park. Visit
The Elder Street car park is a state of the art, energy saving car park that sets a bold new standard in car park design. With an increasing public consciousness of global warming, and due to the fact that motor vehicles are seen to have a negative impact on the environment, the environmentally friendly design of the parking facility eases some of the burden on the environment and aims to provide parking patrons with a more positive experience. The car park has been designed to reduce energy consumption and vehicle gas emissions.
The external appearance of the car park was architecturally designed to complement the surrounding streetscape. The car park blends in as an office development so cars aren’t visible from the street but at the same time it maintains natural ventilation with minimum mechanical requirements (see image 1 and 2). A light steel roof structure was adopted to allow ample light and volume on the upper floor level.
The building design features, along with their benefits, are:
- Colours and wildlife used for easy identification of floor levels.
- Directional signage and VMS signage.
- Reduced number of static signs with use of VMS/LED signs that flash multiple messages.
- LED signs with real time availability of car bays highlighted at each level, reducing travel time and CO2 emissions.
- Smart systems lighting where the level of power can be controlled and specific lights can be automatically switched off where levels are not in use.
- Dedicated caged motorcycle and bicycle parking with controlled entry from Elder Street. This is the first car park in Australia to provide these facilities. It allows patrons to park at Elder Street and use the free CAT bus service to travel into the city centre, which reduces traffic.
- Bicycle parking has a two way pedestrian turn stile gate and a bicycle gate for increased security.
- Solar panels on the roof to supply energy to electric vehicle charging facilities. The car park currently has 12 bays ‘hard wired’ for electric vehicle charging.
- Pedestrian access is available from Wellington Street to service patrons going to and from events at the Perth Arena Stadium in the future, with direct entry to a pay lobby, stairs and lifts.
- Automatic CO2 monitoring (ventilation adjusting) to reduce energy consumption.
- High clearance (high ceiling) for sense of space and fewer columns. Fewer columns allows for improved vision of security cameras.
- Foyer areas are glassed to give a sense of openness and security for patrons
- Modern self-cleaning toilet facilities suitable for disabled access.
