Methodology to apportion parking bays for a shared basement

Credit Interpretation Request Number

TRA2-C-OB1 -0783

Ruling
2015-12-08

Methodology to apportion the relative site bays to each building’s portion of GLA according to a pro-rata basis, where the allocation of the parking bays calculated according to each buildings representative GLA as a portion of the overall site GLA, is conditionally approved. The approval of this CIR is thus contingent on the following:

In addition to the documentation requirements stipulated in the Green Star SA Office v1 Technical manual, the project team must submit a signed letter of confirmation from the building owner clearly showing that all buildings considered  have the same use classification (e.g. Office, Retail, etc.).

The GBCSA further notes that the same apportioning methodology should align with all other relevant credits in the submission (e.g. ENE credits, MAT credits, etc).

Additionally, the project team must still demonstrate within the submission that the parking allocated for the building pursuing certification using this alternative methodology meets the credit criteria.

Preferred Parking Space Markings

Technical Clarification Number
TRA2-T-OB1-0644

Guidance
2013-02-12

With reference to the statement on page 171 that states that preferred parking spaces “…must be clearly signposted and marked with a separate colour from other spots…”, note that the requirement for colour markings apply only if the spots are signposted so that it is clear which parking spaces the signposting applies to. If preferred parking bay markings are provided in the actual parking bays, then these markings need not be in a separate colour to other spots as it is clear which parking spots are marked as preferred.

Guidance

The number of moped/scooter/motorbike spaces must be at least 5 motorbike spaces or 5% of the total number of vehicle spaces on the site (whichever is greater). The size of size 'parking space' is equal to the size of a motor bike parking space. For example, a site with 190 car parking spaces and 10 small motorbike spaces would qualify.
