Choate Parking Consultants, Inc. (CPC) is an architectural firm that specializes exclusively in parking planning and design.  Since our founding in 1998, we have designed 1,000+ parking projects for universities, healthcare institutions, municipalities, private commercial and entertainment developers.  We have worked with and for contractors, developing a hands-on understanding of their ability to deliver parking solutions in the field, which allows us to “think like a contractor builds.” 

CPC is passionate about parking and brings principal involvement to every project.  Rick Choate, Principal and founder of the firm, provides a perspective that can only be realized from over forty-five years of focused experience in parking planning and design.  We strive to create elegant, efficient and cost-effective solutions for our clients, while keeping within the boundaries of their budget and schedule.  Each project we design is guided by the principle that parking is the first and last impression many patrons have with a development, and we always keep in mind that parking buildings are for people and not just the cars they park. 

Our three offices serve Southern California, the Bay Area and Las Vegas and bring vision and passion to parking consulting and design services.
