Watry Design has always been at the forefront of parking design and innovation. Throughout our history, present and future, our team members not only belong to various organizations that support our client's interests and champion parking, but also significantly contribute to committees that publish on trends, best practices and code. One of the organizations we have a long standing relationship with is National Parking Association’s Parking Consultants Council, known as the PCC. This group is comprised of a prestigious group of architects, engineers, consultants, system providers and contractors that foster information sharing, develop best practices and produce premier publications on parking. Currently, three of our experts are contributing through the Council's efforts.
As the Vice Chair of the PCC, John Purinton, a Watry Design Principal, contributed several chapters to the latest edition of the Dimensions of Parking, "the book" to read for planning, designing, financing, building, and operating parking structure best practices. Licensed in seven states, John brings over 25 years of experience in parking structure design and renovation to the Council. He has written and spoken extensively on industry topics such as structural systems, subterranean parking structure design and seismic analysis.
As Chair of the PCC’s Automated Committee, David LoCoco, a Watry Design Principal, is leading the Committee’s efforts to publish a new book on mechanical and automated parking. The PCC has partnered with the American Mechanical Parking Association, AMPA, in this undertaking. With over 35 years of experience and a deep passion for parking, David brings his recognized expertise in automated parking solutions to the Council.
Michael Johnson, a Watry Design Associate Principal, is a member of the PCC and part of the committee working in partnership with the Urban Land Institute on a new edition of Shared Parking, which focuses on right sizing parking for mixed-use developments. Having led or contributed to over 150 parking and design projects, Michael brings over 25 years of experience and his expertise in shared parking to the Council.
