the whole world of parking management

The NEC Birmingham

Scheidt & Bachmann have delivered the automated parking hardware & software for one of the UK’s premier event venues, The NEC Birmingham. With millions of visitors attending the venue each year, The NEC Birmingham desired a niche and solid system that can deliver consistent results to cater for the 16,500 space car park estate meeting the needs of 2.4 million guests and 500 events annually spread across 19 exhibition halls, 34 conference suites and a host of additional outdoor spaces.

The systems allow visitors to select the show that they attended and pay for parking based on variable rates dependant on the show selected.

"Scheidt & Bachmann UK have been outstanding to work with, and have been instrumental in getting our project done on time and within budget. I have worked with other parking equipment and software partners in the past that have a ‘will do what you ask for’ attitude but they do not necessarily understand the end result and the reasons behind it. This is not the case with Scheidt & Bachmann as their sales division right through to their technical and engineering division knew exactly what we were trying to accomplish and why we were trying to accomplish it and have consistently gone above and beyond to come up with creative ways to get to where we want to go within our parking estates here at the NEC.
I would highly recommend Scheidt & Bachmann UK to any car park operator who wishes to improve the effectiveness and performance of their car parks as they possess a deep understanding of the science behind parking and have a real passion for delivering world class solutions.”
