In the fast-evolving world of urban development, the push towards sustainability and efficiency is more crucial than ever. At Volley, our automated parking garage system significantly reduces the environmental footprint of traditional parking spaces.

By utilizing Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) to transport and store vehicles within the garage, cars are parked more closely together, so constructing the garage only requires about half the amount of concrete and steel typically used during construction. Plus, for decades afterwards, cars move inside the garage using zero emission electric power, eliminating the idling and driving emissions inside the garage.

Reducing Embodied Carbon
One of the standout benefits of Volley’s automated parking system is their ability to reduce embodied carbon. By requiring less structural material, these garages cut the amount of concrete and steel used in construction by nearly 50%. This significant reduction not only minimizes the environmental impact but also represents a substantial cost saving in time and materials. In an era where sustainability credentials are increasingly influencing investment decisions, this feature makes automated parking systems a compelling choice for forward-thinking property developers.

Enhancing Air Quality and Operational Efficiency
Automated parking garages also address another critical urban issue: air quality. Traditional parking lots often contribute to local pollution, with cars idling and maneuvering in confined spaces. In contrast, AGVs operate entirely on electric power, eliminating emissions within the parking structure. This not only conserves energy but also drastically improves the air quality surrounding these developments, contributing positively to community health and well-being.

Considerations for Real Estate Developers
As urban populations continue to grow, the demand for innovative and space-efficient infrastructure solutions will only increase, along with expectations for LEED status and Net Zero designations. Volley’s automated parking systems offer a powerful and beneficial way to meet these needs by aligning with local and regional environmental goals.

Our automated parking garages represent a transformative shift in how we can all think about parking in dense environments, with a better experience for those parking, and a lower environmental impact from construction and operation. By adopting automated parking systems, developers who partner with Volley are not only optimizing land use but also contributing to a greener, more sustainable urban landscape.
