Parking remains a constant problem for organisations who are having to deal with a shortfall of spaces, poor parking behaviours and constant complaints from staff and neighbours
Rolls-Royce recently came to us to discuss how we could offer alternatives to solve the problems they were experiencing with parking across their vast Derby and Bristol locations. Rolls-Royce were struggling from a shortfall in parking capacity along with parking areas which were in need of repair and upgrade. In addition their current parking allocations had developed over time leading to a range of parking permits and local arrangements in place
Working with their facilities management team to fully understand the detail of the problems and how car parks were used on a daily basis, by employees, contractors and shift workers was key to our ability to help Rolls-Royce. Following this we recommended a centrally managed and structured approach to allocate parking.

The development a policy and scheme of this nature involves working closely with key stakeholders from within the business at all levels including HR, Communications and Property representatives. Car Parking issues can be underestimated but can not be.
This approach has been used with another long standing client - Vodafone at their Headquarters site in Newbury.
