Athénée Royal d'Ixelles

Making underutilized school parking spaces available for the neighborhood while generating additional revenue

SCHOOL

Who is Athénée Royal d'Ixelles?

ARInew

The Athénée Royal d'Ixelles is a secondary school whose teaching is based on the principles of democracy. 

The establishment is dedicated to ensuring quality education in a strict family and multicultural environment. 

In order to provide the best possible learning environment for its students, the school constantly invests time and effort in a variety of educational areas.

 

The context

First thing to note is that the school has a parking lot to accommodate staff during the day, but it remains empty when classes are not held in the evenings, at night, and on weekends. 

The school parking remains empty during those periods while the demand for parking is high in the neighborhood. This could be a great source of income but if no one uses this space, it's not profitable. 

As the parking lot is located in the city center, it is often used at night by people from outside the establishment who are not allowed to park there. This brings a feeling of insecurity.

 

The solution

Since 2014, the BePark access system has been installed in the school parking lot. This achieves several objectives.

Control access to the parking lot

Thanks to the installed access system, only the school staff members and BePark users have now access to the school parking lot.

Generate additional income

Parking spaces are now rented by local residents in the evenings and on weekends and remain used by staff during the day. The school thus benefits from a regular additional income that it can invest in teaching and its infrastructure.

Share the parking lot with local residents

Local residents who had difficulty finding a parking space near their homes now have a practical solution at an affordable price. This brings better visibility to the school.

 

The stages of the collaboration

This collaboration was successful thanks to the teamwork of BePark and Athénée Royal d'Ixelles.

BePark worked with the school before, during and after the implementation of its solution in the school parking lot.

Together, we defined the school's needs and objectives. From this definition, we decided 35 parking spaces would be available for rent on nights and weekends. 

The BePark access system was then installed in the school parking lot.

We are now taking care of the marketing and the promotion of the parking spaces as well as the billing and customer management. Regular monitoring is carried out by our control team.

 

Results

The school now generates a fixed income that it can invest in its infrastructure and program. 

The community is now taking advantage of the school's previously unused space. The school is now better integrated locally because the neighbors are happy to find a parking space thanks to their local school. The school also enjoys greater visibility in the neighborhood.

The feeling of insecurity in the evening has disappeared. Thanks to the access system, only those with access can enter and leave the parking lot.
