Established in 1998, Choate Parking Consultants, Inc. (CPC) brings not only vision, but also a special passion to parking consulting and design services. Our practice places client needs as our number one priority and as such CPC provides a level of professional service that extends beyond client expectations

CPC is solely dedicated to parking planning and design.  We understand the role that experience, talent, enthusiasm and attention to the Owner’s needs mean.  We prefer, as a firm to have "hands on" principal involvement with all of our client's projects, to stay close to the design process and maintain experienced professionals on staff to meet that goal.  Rick Choate, Principal and founder of the firm provides a perspective that can be realized only from over thirty years of focused experience in parking planning and design.

Our experienced staff as Architects of parking has a single focus, parking planning and design; that is all we do.  As parking professionals and consultants, we have worked with varied projects and different owners to understand their operational concerns and program needs.  We have worked with and for contractors developing a hands-on understanding of their abilities to deliver the parking solution in the field.  Our profession as parking consultants is the marriage of issues and components into the reality of concrete and steel, which is personally structured to fit the owner’s goals.

The designs begin new each time and are not an exact science.  We rely on our experience to alleviate reinventing the wheel, by disciplining the design team, focusing the direction, building on the known and investigating the opportunities.  Our extensive contact with knowledgeable contractors in the construction profession allows for discovery by conversations of…  “What if?”
