ACI-KCís Social Committee, which is chaired by Ms. Dana Drobiova, organized a visit to the new Automated Car Park that has been built for Jahra Court Complex. The field visit took place on Saturday, 22nd April, 2017 and was attended by a large number of Chapter members.
The company that provided and installed the automated systems, ACICO gave a brief presentation on how the car park works, and this was followed by a demonstration. Members saw the automated system in operation, from the point where vehicles were registered at the point of entry, to how the cars were then mechanically stacked, and then ultimately retrieved.
Members also visited the control room from which the entire automated process is monitored. The fully-automated multi-storey car park is the first of its kind in the GCC region. The facility, which can accommodate over 2900 cars comprises three basements, ground floor, 4 parking floors for ordinary cars, and 14 further separate levels of parking spaces equipped with special security provisions.
About 93 spaces are allocated for judges, prosecutors and high-level officials. The visit was indeed informative, and the ACI-KC Social Committee wishes to thank Mr. Shahed Hussain who coordinated the arrangements for the visit, and ACICO for the technical details and explanations.
