Installing an automated parking system into an existing building required U-tron’s design to consider major structural adaptations. For example, shuttle aisles needed adjustments to carry the calculated weights. The use of entry and exit bays equipped with lifts required concrete cutting through the parking levels to reinforce the specialized structure.
Specially designed rails were added to the parking levels to overcome existing concrete deficiencies and achieve the accuracy level that enabled the system operation.
Retrofitting an existing garage is always complicated work. The challenge is bigger if the building is occupied and fully operational, more forcefully if the users are medical patients that might need extra care conditions. U-tron performed its work with minimal disturbance to the building’s operation during the installation work.
