We welcome partnerships who offer relevant services in our parking facilities. We acknowledge the importance of their house style appearance. However, in our 'house', the Q-Park house style is leading. But we do provide our partners with opportunities to integrate their way finding, retail (office space) recognition and advertisement signage in our house style.
In this chapter:
Alternative use space(s)
In the process of composing/signing the contract or (sub)lease with partners, there needs to be a sign-off by Q-Park Commercial Leads and a design sign-off by Corporate Real Estate.
Partner logos are kept to a minimum as motorists should not be distracted. No additional information such as websites, phone numbers et cetera are allowed.
Partner logo can be incorporated on a light grey Dibond sign attached to a typical Q-Park directional arrow sign (red for motorists and green for pedestrians).
Signs have to be installed by Q-Park’s local signage contractor who has the measurements and technical specifications of that particular site available.
The number of signs are kept to a minimum and all positions have to be approved by Q-Park prior to installation.
To integrate the style of a third party in our house style, it must be applied as followed: The used material is a standard aluminium plate or the standard Dibond plate (RAL 9006). The printable area is 35 mm smaller on each side with a sign of 300 x 300 mm. (What about double sizes?) Other measurements need to be scaled from this ratio. A sign of 250 x 250 mm has a edge distance of 30 mm.
Photo example motorists - single and double size templates + example

Partner logos can be located above or at the back of a parking space. The measurements of these signs are usually 300 x 300 mm.

We work with preferred suppliers and media partners. Country consistency is required with one style of frames and panels, according to Q-Park housestyle principles.
Every new contract proposal (per parking facility) is based on a physical visit by at least the media partner and Q-Park operations, preferably accompanied by Real Estate and Marketing.

routine maintance activities
rapid response service
safety and preventive maintenance activities
inspection and quality control

Water and drainage: in case water is needed, a propor organisation of collecting water is required. Slip hazards have to be prevented at all times. Responsibilities have to be stated clearly in the contract.
