I’m sure they didn’t get any complaints.
I also noticed that many of the lots were owned and operat-
ed by private operators. They were jammed in the evenings.
Others were owned by the local municipality and run by private
operators. They had a lot less traffic. There was a guy sitting in
a booth collecting money, and that was it.
Then I understood the difference. The city lots had a man-
agement agreement with the operator with little or no incentive.
The private lots probably had some kind of revenue sharing
with the operator.
The operator was incentivized to maximize income. He had
people in the streets and was adjusting pricing minute by minute

parked 100 more cars in those aisles. That’s $1,000. The extra
hours of staffing probably cost them $100. Not a bad deal.

but it didn’t seem to do the business. Then I stepped back and
took a longer view.

one entrance. If you missed the entrance, you had to go around
four blocks to get back to the lot. In doing so, you passed at least

Continues to Gain Share
of Parking Market
The use of structural steel framing on parking garage proj-
ects continued its rise in 2006, according to industry research.
The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) reports a
3% increase in market share by square footage for structural
steel-framed parking structures throughout the United States in
2006, based on research from Parking Market Research of
Total market share by square footage for structural steel-
framed parking projects now stands at 11% nationwide, up from
8% one year ago. Structural steel’s share of the parking struc-
ture market has risen from 3% of the market in 2000 to 11%
today. Structural steel is used on garage projects of every size
and description. Recent notable examples include the award-
winning Station Place Garage in Portland, OR; the Seminole
Hard Rock Casino & Hotel Garage in Hollywood, FL; and the
15-story shared parking facility for the employees of the
Flamingo and Venetian Casinos in Las Vegas.

Park Mark is Streets Ahead
Turn-of-the-year figures revealed that the Safer Parking
Scheme (SPS), branded to the consumer as Park Mark, had
increased in membership by 40% in 2006. Award holders
now stand at just over 2,800, compared with about 2,000 at
the same time last year.
2006 marked a real turn-around for the SPS, including:
• Results of a nationwide award holder survey resulted
in more targeted marketing, contact with regional managers
and support for award holders.
• Development of Park Mark Signage Starter Packs,
which have been delivered to all SPS members.
• Information and promotional packs delivered to all
500+ Community Safety Partnerships in the U.K.
Kelvin Reynolds, head of the SPS at the British Parking
Association, which manages the scheme for the Associations
of Chief Police Officers (ACPO/S) throughout the U.K.,
said: “The scheme continues to gain momentum. ... It is our
intention to make sure the consumer knows about [SPS] so
that award holders get maximum benefit from their drive to
keep their facilities safe. We want people to actively choose
to park where they see the Park Mark sign.”
