How do you design a parking building?
The first thing to consider is the size of your lot. If it’s small, then you can build a smaller structure that will fit in well and won’t take up too much space. But if you have a large lot, then you need to think about how big the building needs to be. You also want to make sure that there are enough spaces for cars to park.
