Parking Garage Management in Hartford, Connecticut
The MAT Garage, a 950-space parking structure in the center of downtown Hartford, provides a convenient, clean and modern parking alternative for visitors and people working in the central business district. Owned by the City of Hartford, under the auspices of the Hartford Parking Authority, CPS was awarded the management contract for this facility in March 1997. CPS is responsible for all day-to-day operations including security and maintenance of this facility. This property was in disarray prior to CPS taking over the management. Under our management and leadership, we have turned the operating performance of this facility around to the point of robust profitability for the property owner and implemented outstanding monthly financial reporting. Since we have taken over the management of the MAT Garage we have significantly increased the gross operating revenues of the facility while we have been able to cut and contain the monthly operating expenses. This has resulted in significant monthly and annual profits flowing to the property owner. The MAT Garage, during our tenure, has undergone significant renovations, including significant demolition and replacement of concrete decking and structural steel; installation of a traffic bearing membrane; lighting upgrades; replacement of fire safety systems; repairs of garage drain system; modernization of elevators; replacement/repair of pedestrian doors; new traffic directional and way finding signage; painting and other aesthetic improvements. CPS utilizes an in-house security staff which has resulted in a reduction of operating expenses, improved coverage and effective supervision. Our in-house effort is supported by regular tours and support by the Hartford Guides.
