BMW DesignworksUSA working on world's greenest parking garage
Filed under: Technology, BMW
BMW Group has announced that DesignworksUSA is hard at work on what's supposed to be the world's greenest parking garage. In partnership with Canopy Airport Parking, the design house plans to construct a 4,200-vehicle facility at Denver International Airport that will leverage a full spectrum of green technology solutions. The garage (and its shuttle buses) will tap into power sources from solar, wind, geothermal, compressed natural gas, biodiesel and hybrid drivetrains, just to name a few. In an attempt to make the new building more attractive to EV and plug-in hybrid owners, there will be "juice bar" charging stations on hand, too.
As a result of its efforts, DesignworksUSA hopes that the new garage will nab a Platinum certification from the Green Parking Council, a non-profit group that certifies parking structures based on their ecological and social impact. The whole shebang is slated to be open for business starting late next month, just in time for the holiday season. Hit the jump to take a look at the quick press release.
