There’s More Shades Of Green In A Sustainable World Than One Can Imagine.
Since 1968 Harding Steel, Inc. headquartered in Denver, Colorado, has been manufacturing, installing, and servicing parking lifts in home garages, commercial parking lots, and condominiums. They can fit double, triple, or quadruple the vehicles as a traditional parking lot, allowing a smaller construction footprint.
Harding Steel developed the hydraulic car lift system and is the largest manufacturer of the mechanical parking lift systems. They offer 14 different models of above ground, subterranean, and semi-automated parking system (also known as “puzzle parking” structures). The systems are affordable and provide a quick return on investment. Systems from production facilities in North America and Asia are sent to customers in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East.
Jessica Shaw with the Christie Nye Company told Forced Green, “The nature of this type of parking system is “green” in its purpose – using the space that already exists to fit more vehicles, instead of having to build an additional parking structure, or dig several floors underground for a multi-level parking garage. It’s not only more cost effective for builders, it’s also convenient and quick for people to retrieve their cars (usually 30-40 seconds—much quicker than a traditional parking garage).”
Below is a video featuring Harding Steel’s CarMatrix system installed in The 20 on Hawthorne, a 51-unit building in Portland Oregon that was sustainably designed and built to a LEED Gold Certification standard. Along with the puzzle parking system, the building also utilizes such sustainability features as high-efficiency appliances, glass windows, lighting, recycled materials, and eco-terrace, just to name of few.
It amazing to watch the diversity of sustainability …..
