About Walker Consultants
Established in 1965 as a structural engineering firm, Walker rapidly grew into a transportation, design and consulting firm, and by the 1980’s lead the industry as the most experienced parking consulting firm in the United States. Today, Walker Consultants is a global consulting firm with 18 domestic and 1 international office. Today Our staff of over 300 has experience working in all 50 states. We are proud of the impact our firm and our people have had on the transportation industry and specifically on the planning, design and restoration of parking facilities worldwide. Many of the design elements and planning approaches that are taken for granted today are innovations developed by Walker’s professional staff. We pioneered the concept of the mega-parking structure at theme parks, airports and international developments, furthered the use of and improved upon the concept of shared parking at mixed-use developments, and were instrumental in the development of design standards for accessible parkers.
Walker’s first car park design (circa 1967) utilized a speed ramp and flat floors - a concept in vogue today as a solution for adaptive re-use! In addition to our design expertise, Walker has been a leader in the consulting area as well, being one of the first firms to demonstrate how strategic parking planning can help cities and towns promote economic development and improve the quality of life for residents. Walker served as the consultant for the first privatization of a municipal parking asset and has assisted with dozens of public/private partnership projects. Walker has been a premier transportation consultant for over 50 years and we will continue to focus on developing solutions that are realistic, implementable and cost-effective by utilizing cutting edge technology and the creativity of our outstanding people.
