Featuring more than 75 3D scale drawings and explaining their individual strengths and weaknesses, this book is the only comprehensive reference for car park layout design. The book also covers the practical design of parking elements including ramps, stalls, and traffic aisles, and provides guidance on key issues including security, fire escape requirements, drainage, signage and barrier control.

The new edition includes:

- Issues surrounding provision for charging hybrid and electrically powered vehicles - a topic as yet poorly addressed in the literature.
- Optimum entry and exit locations that affect layout.
- 50% more drawings - including scale drawings that can be used as templates in the layout design process.
