Double delight for Q-Park with prestigious Park Mark Plus awards

Birmingham City Hospital MSCP and Sandwell General Hospital MSCP achieve highest standard in parking accreditations

Building on the well-regarded Safer Parking Scheme’s Park Mark award, the new Park Mark Plus recognises only the highest quality car parks. The award assesses a range of criteria from services and operations to design and build. To qualify for the award, the car park must meet Park Mark and Disability Parking Accreditation criteria as a minimum.

Customer expectations for well-managed, high-quality car parks are exerting demand on the sector to deliver excellent services and enhanced customer experience whilst caring for the environment. Technology is also playing a growing role in delivering a seamless and efficient customer experience.

Environmental sustainability is a key focus of this award; the assessment included the availability of electric charging bays (of which the car park currently has 12) and energy-saving equipment. The car park provides motorcycle parking with helmet lockers, a bug hotel, and some unique design features.

Ross Badham, Business Manager – Sandwell & West Birmingham NHS Trust said “To achieve Park Mark Plus is excellent news and I would like to thank Matt for his time on site and patience during the process. Q-Park is really proud to achieve this award, especially with healthcare sites, and I know alongside Q-Park that the NHS Trust holds Park Mark in very high regard so to obtain the plus award across two hospital sites will be very well received.”

Matthew Robinson BPA Area Manager said: “I am delighted that Birmingham City Hospital MSCP and Sandwell General Hospital MSCP have achieved the Park Mark Plus award, demonstrating their hard work and commitment to provide a safe environment for users.”
