Ace Parking Vs Multi-Storey Car Park (MSCP)

Constructing a MSCP needs a very large footprint which was not feasible for this Seoul project.

ACE Parking System

Multi-Storey Car Park (MSCP) Large imposing actual floor area of 1820sqm for 52 cars (35sqm/lot including ramps and driveway) Deeper and costly foundation Entire floor must be completed before upper floors can start Dead spaces - ramps and drive way Requires many lights Low maintenance cost

Small actual floor area footprint of only 90 sqm for 2 sets of Ace Parking tower parking 52 cars Simple foundation Small confined work area. Faster project development No dead spaces Minimal lighting requirement

Moderately low maintenance cost
