How is parking area calculated?
Theoretically, the requirement of parking space amount can calculated using the ratio method R = L / SRP. The ratio method is based on the ratio of the floor area of the building (L) to the units of parking space (SRP), which is divided into road sections or parking blocks.
What size is a car parking space?
In the US, minimum width standards of parking spaces usually range from 8.5 to 9.0 feet (2.6–2.7 m). Angled and perpendicular spaces may need to be wide to allow doors to open, while parallel parking spots may be narrower on low-traffic neighborhood streets.
