Penrose Wharf

Penrose Wharf is a business centre of over 100 commercial units situated in the heart of Cork city on the bank of the River Lee. When the time came for an upgrade of the car park system at Penrose Wharf the owners decided to choose SKIDATA as their preferred partner and have not regretted this decision ever since according to the testimonial below.

Project Overview 

Cashless Payment options at pay stations and lanes

RFID Contactless access for residents and contract parkers

Hotel and gym validation provision

Completed as a new build in 2009, Saint Anne’s Square is situated in the vibrant Cathedral Quarter of Belfast city centre incorporating the MAC theatre and exhibition space, apartments, a gym, a hotel, and a great variety of restaurants.
Having been invited to participate in the new build procurement process, SKIDATA was chosen to provide the car park management system due to the provision of excellent service references in Belfast that endorsed our professional team and unrivalled technical knowledge.

The 540 space Multi-storey car park has one entry and one exit lane with a spare lane to use at peak times.

Two pay stations situated in the pedestrian lift lobby ensure that parkers can clearly see where to pay. 

Contract parkers can sign up for a range of parking products and use their contactless cards to enter and exit.

Those attending a nearby gym can receive discounted parking thanks to the validation system integrated to the SKIDATA parking system.

Likewise the hotel located within Saint Annes Square is also using the validation services to enable offering hotel guests special discount.
