Parking Equipment 2020

Parking Equipment 2020
Budget:  $2.6M
Project Start:  July 2020
Completion:  December 2020

This project proposes to replace the 2004 vintage parking control system used to manage entry and exit from the staff, hourly and daily lots as well as for payment collection at the public lots.  The existing system has aged out from an information technology standpoint as well as from a physical equipment perspective. The system will be replaced with modern equipment that can leverage new technologies and improve revenue streams.

Significant Developments:

  • A Request for Proposal (RFP) for this project was issued in mid-January and closed at the end of February. 
  • Costing was presented to the Board in March per the business case for the project.
  • Management worked with the preferred vendor (Precise Parklink) to create a phasing plan that would allow the project to be 100% complete in 2020 as initially planned but with a deferral on payment of a portion of the costs to 2021.
  • BDG Contracting is a Vancouver=based parking systems contractor that will be providing project management for VAA on this project.
  • Project is now substantially complete with all systems now in operation.
  • Working through minor deficiencies at this time.


  • Project kick-off meeting took place early in September.
  • Equipment arrived onsite at the end of November with installation following immediately after.
  • The system was operational for Christmas.
  • The project was on budget.
