Abstract: The importance of parking should not be overlooked especially when there is a rising trend of car ownership in land scarce Singapore. The increase in car population will leads to future demand for parking. Mechanical car park systems used to be unpopular can be used to solve this problem by storing the automobiles in a more systematic and space saving manner. The aim of this study is to promote the use of the mechanical car park systems and hopefully to see a higher application of such systems in Singapore in the near future. The author adopts a combination of both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies. The quantitative analysis was based on interview findings of space efficiency from the suppliers, car park specialists and the management of the mechanical car park. The qualitative analysis was based on the case study where an in depth study on the application of mechanical car park systems has been undertaken. The results have shown that the level of application of mechanical car park system in Singapore is low from the problems identified from the case studies. Some of the problems can be solved with the advanced technology and innovative ideas where others are remained unsolved. This study has given an in depth understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of mechanical car parks. Besides that it has also justify the space efficiency of adopting such system. Recommendations have also been put forward with the hope that a higher level of application of mechanical car park will be seen in the near future.
