How to Model 9,000 Parking Places in Kuala Lumpur

Located in Kuala Lumpur, the KL118 Tower is a 118-storey building comprising a total of more than 400,000 m2 of office, hotel and commercial spaces. The Tower will be the tallest in the country and one of the tallest in the world, exceeding 600m in height, and representing one of the City’s landmarks in less than a decade from now. Systematica was appointed to provide consultancy services on roadway network traffic analysis, parking engineering and pedestrian flow analysis.

The Project is considered of high complexity, with more than 15,000 people that are expected to daily transit, live and work in the building; more than 9,000 parking places designated for different land use and facilities are provisioned. A complex forecast model was prepared with the aim of incorporating all mobility dynamics within a single framework, for attaining balance between all transportation modes and all types of users and user groups. Consultancy went hand-in-hand with different trades and design disciplines where output was directly incorporated mainly in parking floors and areas where high traffic volumes are expected such as the MRT connections and tower lobby.
