WÖHR Creates Easy Parking for Residents at Award-Winning Urban District

The Neckarbogen project was awarded the “National Award for Building Culture in Baden-Württemberg 2020”

In Neckarbogen, Heilbronn, an award-winning urban construction site, residents are enjoying easily accessible parking spaces following the installation of WÖHR's Combilifts 542 and Parklifts on construction site J.

In 2019, the National Garden Show was held in the urban district of Neckarbogen in Heilbronn. A completely new park area was created for this purpose, with all kinds of beneficial features for pedestrians and cyclists, including, in particular, the opportunity to experience breathtaking nature.

For Heilbronn, the National Garden Show laid the foundation for a new, equally dense, varied, and green urban quarter in a central location on the waterside, which will extend over a total of 17 construction sites by 2030. The “Neckarbogen” district is intended to provide living accommodation for 3,500 people and employment for 1,000.

To preserve the natural idyll, the design of the project does not envisage parking above ground. A total of 230 parking spaces shall be accommodated in two separate underground car parks. 76 parking spaces were completed on the construction site in a conventional design but a conventional garage, with ramps, would involve particularly expensive construction in site J, due to the high water table. The architects, therefore, opted for a Combilift solution by WÖHR.

The chosen parking system is the Combilift 542 Comforttype. Using the reliable stacking and shifting principle, two parking levels are created on top of each other within an exceedingly small space, without additional ramps or driving lanes. With a low installation height of only 2.20 m and a pit depth of only 2.00 m, the semi-automatic parking system provides two parking spaces on top of each other with only one entry-level and without a ramp.

Each user has a dedicated, level accessible parking space, which can be accessed via an RFID chip or the WÖHR Smart-Parking-App. Once the driver has requested it, the parking space is made available behind closed gates.

As soon as the parking space is ready for entering or exiting on the entry-level, the electric sliding gate opens automatically. With the Smart-Parking-App, the sliding gate can also be closed easily, by entering the number combination shown on the display above the sliding gates into the smartphone.

A total of 17 of the 143 parking spaces are also equipped with a universal post for e-charging, electric cars are thus charged simultaneously while parking.

The excellent project was awarded the “National Award for Building Culture in Baden-Württemberg 2020”. With the “National Award for Building Culture in Baden-Württemberg”, the State is seeking to recognize and publicize particularly exemplary and transferrable solutions for the planning and construction challenges in the State’s towns and communities.
