  3. 3. why PCI The following points provide an overview of the benefits of entrusting your work to Parking Consultants International: •PCI is Australia’s most experienced parking consulting firm with over 30 years’ experience and with a team of specialists in all aspects of parking design, planning and performance monitoring. •PCI has established a sound reputation for consistently maximising the income and capital value of clients’ properties. •PCI has provided valuable advice to clients across a wide range of property classes, including hospitals, shopping centres, commercial offices, airports and universities. •PCI services the leading property owners and developers of Australia, including AMP, Australand, ING, Macquarie Bank, Multiplex, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne Airports Stockland & Westfield. •PCI offers a service which is a commonplace feature of development and property management teams in the USA and the UK.

  4. 4. services PCI offers a comprehensive selection of car park planning, design and performance monitoring services which include: •Design Concepts and Reviews •Income Projections and Feasibility Studies •Equipment and Signage Selection and Tendering •Refurbishment Upgrading •Management Tenders •Audits and Performance Reviews •Project Management •Marketing
  5. 5. services: design concepts and reviews Good design principles applied to car parks result in a significant competitive advantage. Applying international best design practice and extensive car park design experience, our designers work as an integral part of the development team, alongside project architects and traffic engineers. Our objectives are to ensure that your car park’s space efficiency is maximised, whilst optimizing traffic circulation, pedestrian safety and convenience. It is not uncommon for our design reviews to result in increased efficiency and reduction in capital costs by up to 15% and still provide users with an improved parking experience.
  6. 6. services: income projections and feasibility studies We are specialists in the financial analysis of parking and in the preparation of revenue and expense projections. Property owners, investors and developers rely on our demand and income projections to guide them with decisions, ranging from introducing paid parking in hospitals and shopping centres, to capital raisings and analysis of investment opportunities. PCI also conducts focused market research to ensure that any decisions on car park capacity are based on actual and expected demand rather than determined by Authority codes.
  7. 7. services: equipment, signage selection and tendering Effective access and revenue control, security and wayfinding will help to maximise your car park’s revenue and to improve user convenience. Any technology must be designed specifically to the needs of the individual car park and those of its intended customers. Our independent recommendations are based on identifying the unique needs of each car park and meeting those needs with the most appropriate equipment configuration. PCI will provide an evaluation of both the quantitative and qualitative elements of tenders from equipment suppliers, ensuring that you are able to make the most appropriate decision for the particular property. Most important is the quality and reliability of the on- going servicing and maintenance of the equipment post installation.
  8. 8. services: refurbishment and upgrading Customers expect a clean, safe and bright car park environment. A car park is often the ‘front door’ to a property and therefore a positive experience reflects on the property as a whole. Our team offers innovative design and refurbishment recommendations and upgrading packages which eliminate the bare concrete shell appearance of many car parks. Painting, lighting and appropriate floor finishes all contribute to a feeling of safety, cleanliness and comfort, which in turn have a positive impact on the car park’s financial “bottom line”. Technological developments must also be analysed and evaluated to ensure that customers’ increasing expectations are being addressed in a timely and cost-effective manner.
  9. 9. services: audits and performance reviews (financial and operational) A well managed and controlled car park can contribute significantly to a property’s value. Cash handling, inadequate equipment and poor systems and procedures can lead to revenue leakage or operator leniency going undetected. Our consultants’ extensive awareness and understanding of car park operations and equipment can help to eliminate losses, to provide optimisation of expenses and consequently to maximize net income. By applying best practice accounting controls and a comprehensive “checks and balances” review, detailed financial and operational reports are compiled determining an accurate profit review of your car park. The cost of a specialised audit is likely to be only a fraction of the potential additional net income from a car park which is not comprehensively controlled. Operational reviews assist owners in identifying areas in the car park management practices which may have become “routine tasks” due to focus on the car parking dropping off over extended periods of time.
  10. 10. services: management tenders The right car park management will ensure customer satisfaction and profitability. PCI prides itself on extensive experience in the management of car parks and in the preparation of tenders. We can help you evaluate the comparative merits of outsourcing and in-house management. If an external management solution is recommended, PCI can conduct the tender process for either a management contract or lease. Recommendations will include structuring the financial aspects of the agreement in order to obtain a mutually beneficial solution for owner and operator. If self-management is the preferred alternative we would assist you in the selection and training of staff and in the preparation of operational manuals and reporting packages.
  11. 11. services: project management When it comes to start-ups and management handovers, professional and timely PCI planning and project management can deliver significant benefits. Our team can also assist with implementing and monitoring parking related projects, new equipment installations, introduction of paid parking in previously uncontrolled car parks and first day operations.
  12. 12. services: marketing Our consultants' hands-on car park management experience means we can give you cost effective advice on marketing which will boost your car park’s income and provide you with a competitive advantage. Our strategies are based on growing your market through a better understanding of your local market and existing customer base. These insights will translate into increased customer awareness, competitive pricing structures, heightened productivity per car space, and a marketing program to market permanent spaces.

  20. 20. examples of our airport work All the projects which PCI has carried out have resulted in positive outcomes for our clients. Listed below are the airports we have been involved with in recent years: •Canberra Airport •Darwin Airport •Hobart Airport •Melbourne Airport •Park & Fly (off Airport), Sydney •Sydney Airport •Townsville Airport •Brisbane Airport •Sunshine Coast Airport
  21. 21. case study: canberra airport PCI was engaged by Canberra International Airport to assist them on a number of projects including: •Audit of current operations •Design review and concept designs for car parks at the business parks and terminal redevelopment •Access Control and Parking Guidance Equipment specification and tendering The collaboration between PCI and CIA resulted in the provision of convenient customer access to car parks whilst ensuring that the correct technological solutions and management procedures are set in place to maximise revenues. This is what Stephen Byron, Managing Director of CIA had to say: “PCI have now helped us in a number of different ways and capacities in regard to the operation and development of our car parking business. They have been highly professional, most responsive and have delivered value and insight on each and every occasion. PCI continues to be a core part of our development team, working co-operatively with our architects, builders and other consultants. In relation to the tender for equipment, without PCI’s professional rigour and attention to detail, we would not have achieved the outstanding commercial result nor the performance and operational straightjacket on our suppliers that we now have in place.”
  22. 22. case study: darwin airport PCI’s role for this client was to provide a review of the car park design and layout, a detailed feasibility study and market analysis (including the review of parking tariffs) and the tender process for the purchase and installation of new access control equipment. Subsequently we were engaged to participate in a master plan review for all car parking at the airport, including terminal, commercial and general aviation. Testimonial from Darwin International Airport – Jeff Makeiff, Property and Commerce Manager, 9 February 2009: “Engaging PCI to assist the Darwin International Airport with its overall car parking strategy has produced some of the most tangible and relevant results of our Major Development Plan process. PCI displayed a keen grasp of our immediate, short and long term plans and needs and used this understanding to transcend the quot;gobbledy gookquot; trap of strategy papers and delivered the real goods. Outstanding value, excellent insight and very professional...Thank you PCI!”
  23. 23. case study: hobart airport PCI was engaged to prepare a full car park strategy comprising demand study, feasibility analysis, design options and layouts, signage package for directional and wayfinding signage at the terminal and pricing strategy.

  24. 24. case study: park & fly, mascot Park & Fly is an off airport facility which caters for 1,300 vehicles, most of them in a multi storey structure located near Sydney Airport. The car park is a fully valet operation with all vehicles being checked in at arrival, parked and retrieved by valet attendants, with passengers being shuttled to and from the domestic/international terminals by the use of mini buses. Our involvement in this project was to perform a full review of operations with a view to making suggestions as to maximising efficiency and minimising costs.
  25. 25. case study: sydney airport Our designer, George Burton, in collaboration with DesignInc was responsible for the concept design for the multi storey car park at the International Terminal.
