The automated underground car park Donnersbergerstraße with 284 parking spaces for residents is in operation since 2006 and fully let. The project was initiated as pilot project from the Municipality of Munich, Department of Construction, and was financed by accumulated planning charges, which are payable when a development provides less than the required number of parking spaces. Operating costs are financed by the paid rents for the parking spaces. GIVT mbh has done the expert planning for the parking system technology for the whole project and for all planning stages.
A new quality of parking for residents was realized by this automated underground parking facility. This is shown not only by the exemplary functioning of the system but also by
For reasons of the exemplary character of the project and due to the uncertainty regarding the future development of vehicle dimensions and mass special emphasis was set on the highest possible flexibility of the building structure. It had to be done without on site fixtures in the different fire departments, so that an installation of another parking system in the future will be possible.
A minimum distance between structural shell and existing buildings (the maximal width of the structure was 18 m) had to be respected to avoid any interference of the adjacent development or structure borne noise.
The structure was built by a dig-and-cast construction method. After making the bored pile wall, the structural cover was built over a quite low building pit, so that the surface could be reconstructed while excavation goes on in the underground. So, stress for the residents and local traders during the construction time could be minimized.
A feasibility study showed possible geometries for the building structure, which could be optimized with respect to technology, system logistic and costs. Two construction sections with two similar parking systems were planned. Between the two sections a service area is located, with all media and the technical control room.
The parking system has 4 driving-through transfer cabins. As they are the only visible element of the underground car park, special attention was given to design and urban integration. The transfer cabins should reflect the innovative character of the project and offer to the user a high degree of comfort.
The comfortable operation of the parking system by transponder chips, serving as electronic keys and user identification, enhances user friendliness. The following parking procedures are possible:
As automated parking system two Wöhr Multiparker 740 with 134 and 150 parking spaces on four levels are deployed. Each parking system unit has, due to logistic reasons and reasons of redundancy, two storage and retrieval units. Except for the two outer storage raster all parking spaces are served by the two storage and retrieval units and are linked with the vertical lift.
The storage procedure takes place parallel to the longitudinal axis of the street, the shelf is designed in double-deep storage. To optimize the availability of the transfer cabins the system is equipped with a pallet changer in the vertical conveyors.

The operating ability of the parking system is assured by a 20 year full service contract. Thereby all operational spare parts, supplies and other material as well as all repair and maintenance work and a mobility guarantee are included in the contract. Latest after 20 years of operation the further handling of the system will be decided on.
|Service range with parking system control||Intercom with video control to the operation centre|
Going beyond the requirement 98% availability after VDI 4466, 99% were contractually agreed upon, which were surpassed already in the first operating months. Beside the high quality and mature technology of the parking system the availability is secured by 24 a h-service and a meaningful co-operation between operator an service provider.

ADAC-Certfication for user-friendly automated parking systems
In July 2007 the residential automated underground garage Donnersbergerstraße was certified by the ADAC because of their high user friendliness. The pilot project of the Municipality of Munich benefited from the fact that from the starting point of planning a consistent orientation at the needs of the users took place. An important parameter of the certification of the ADAC is the reliability over a longer period of operational life time. This could be proven by availabilities over 99% (contractually demanded value >99%) in relation to the requirement of the ADAC of 98%. Thus the Donnersbergerstraße is the fourth automatic parking system, which was successfully certified since December 2003.
Germany – Land of Ideas: Selected Landmark 2008
The residential automated underground garage Donnersbergerstraße was selected as „Landmark in the Land of Ideas“. The initiative „Land of Ideas“ has partnered with Deutsche Bank to run the contest. Under the patronage of Germany’s Federal President Christian Wulff outstanding examples for inventiveness and innovation are being honoured. This shows the new urban quality, automated parking systems can provide for sensible inner city locations.
Foundation Award 2007 „Lebendige Stadt“
presents Europe’s best parking concepts
„Parking in Sensitive City Locations“
Special mention for the
Residents’ automatic underground carpark in Munich, Donnersbergerstraße
The „Lebendige Stadt“ Foundation has been successfully working for the future of our cities and aims to preserve the urban diversity of city centers as places where people work, as places where people have their home and as places of cultural activity. In 2007 the foundation presents an award forparking in sensitive city locations, were the Donnersbergerstraße got a special mention. The jury described the residents' automatic underground carpark, a pilot project of the construction department in the state capital of Munich, as a model project. With the help of modern parking technology, this concept has created additional parking space underneath a public road in a densely built-up inner city quarter and improved the quality of the public space - by creating new green areas, for example.
