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.
  • Contracts have  been let for civil, electrical and data works.
  • Equipment is in fabrication.


  • Project kick-off meeting took place early in September.
  • Initial work will be a discovery process to determine the full scope of civil works required.
  • The goal is for the project to be operational for Christmas - based on initial discussions, this is achievable.  It will depend on the civil works scope that is ultimately identified and potential unforeseen complications due to COVID-19.
