New car park in operation - hospital parking for the university hospital in Jena-Lobeda (Thuringia)  

Since May 2016 the car park planned by GIVT mbH with 1,300 parking spaces for patients, visitors and employees of the university clinic was put into operation. On five levels user friendly parking spaces, 2.50 meter wide, column-free in diagonal layout, welcome the users. Four entry lanes, three exit lanes and two spiral ramps  ensure the necessary performance.

The car park received the ESPA Gold Award from the European Parking Association during the opening ceremony.

CONTIPARK has built the 13 million object in a 15-month construction period and will be the future operator. DIP Deutsche Industrie- und Parkhausbau was commissioned with the construction work.  


Second edition Construction and Design Manual Parking Structures


The second edition of the compendium published by the Berlin architectural publishing house DOM publishers, which has been published in English, Turkish and Chinese, is currently in preparation. Expectedly spring 2018, an updated version of the manual will appear with many new aspects and examples.


Dr. Irmscher, founder of GIVT mbH, shows here in detail how to build user friendly car parks.
