Companies Can Double Parking Capacity Without Additional Physical Space

Spacer Takes on America’s  Billion Parking Crisis; Cutting-Edge Park Sharing Technology to Help Businesses Lower Emissions
Spacer Takes on America's $96 Billion Parking Crisis

Spacer can significantly enhance parking capacities, in some instances by doubling it through its technology.

Spacer Technologies, the owner of America's leading parking marketplaces Spacer and Where I Park, announces today its expansion by working with businesses to offer a cutting-edge parking management system that helps lower emissions and decarbonize transport in the community.  

Designed for workplaces, public organizations, universities, commercial properties, and those working toward President Biden’s whole-of-government goal of cutting carbon pollution in half by 2030*, the advanced technology will enable companies to significantly enhance their parking capacity, in some instances by doubling it, without the need for additional physical space.

Since launching into North America in 2018, Spacer Technologies has been focused on peer-to-peer shared parking for consumers. The company has now launched its corporate arm through Spacer and Where I Park by securing partnerships with numerous businesses and industries, which is predicted to grow the business by 50% in revenue in 2024.   

This includes hotel chains, real estate, construction firms, and hospitals along with two of the world's top 10 technology companies, spanning across cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, to name a few. 

The new parking management system will simplify the process for people to find a guaranteed parking spot, reducing fuel consumption. Employees working different shifts or hours can share the same parking spot, while spaces reserved for visitors and contractors can be used when not needed. For corporate premises with neighboring businesses or residential areas, unused spaces can be leased out during off-peak periods, creating an additional revenue stream and optimizing space usage. 

On average, Americans spend 17 hours annually searching for parking, which costs each driver $345 in wasted money. The combined issues of searching for parking, fines, and parking overpayments have escalated into a $96 billion problem in the U.S. In metropolitan areas with over a million residents, 22% of city center land is dedicated exclusively to parking, which often stores empty vehicles. Spacer’s mission is to utilize spare parking spaces more efficiently without the need to build new (or bigger) parking lots.

Mike Rosenbaum, the Founder and CEO of Spacer Technologies, comments, “Our mission is to reduce America’s parking problem and promote sustainable transportation practices through our marketplaces. The new parking management system will bring us closer to this goal by helping American businesses monetize space and minimize waste more effectively.”

SEAM Group Selected as EPC Contractor for Nuvve’s Groundbreaking Fresno Electrification Project

SEAM Group Selected as EPC Contractor for Nuvve’s Groundbreaking Fresno Electrification Project

SEAM Group announces its role as a key partner in Nuvve Holding Corp.'s (Nasdaq: NVVE) groundbreaking fleet electrification project for the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC).

SEAM Group, a global leader in energized asset performance, is proud to announce its role as a key partner in Nuvve Holding Corp.'s (Nasdaq: NVVE) groundbreaking fleet electrification project for the Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission (Fresno EOC).

In alignment with Fresno EOC's commitment to sustainable transportation solutions, the organization is taking a significant step to reduce Fresno's carbon footprint by transitioning its fleet to electric vehicles. This initiative will see Fresno EOC replace its fleet with 50 electric Class-A shuttles over five years. A 2.5-megawatt on-site solar generation and battery energy storage system will be installed to support the electric shuttles. SEAM Group, recognized for its proven platform that combines strategic advisory, custom training solutions, field inspection, and maintenance, will provide comprehensive engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the project and will celebrate its groundbreaking on June 20, 2024.

SEAM Group engineers and renewable energy specialists are poised to play a critical role in the project's success. "We will leverage our expertise across the entire project lifecycle, providing comprehensive services that include strategic advisory support, design, engineering, and procurement of the electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and solar battery storage systems, thorough site assessment and planning, and construction management," said Colin Duncan, SEAM Group CEO. "This comprehensive approach ensures a smooth transition for the Fresno EOC, addressing all aspects from strategic planning to the physical construction of the project."

A unique aspect of this project involves minimizing reliance on the grid during peak demand hours. SEAM Group's expertise will ensure seamless solar battery storage system integration, allowing the electric fleet to operate independently during these times.

"I applaud the Fresno EOC team for their vision of implementing on-site generation, battery storage, interconnection to the grid, and EV charging on a single site. It is encouraging to see lessons learned from years of design and installation applied to develop a first-class location," remarked Scott Moretz, SEAM Group COO.

"We are honored to serve as the EPC contractor for this significant project, partnering with Nuvve and Imperial Electric Services. Our combined expertise ensures a safe and efficient transition to an electrified fleet, empowering Fresno EOC to embrace renewable energy and reduce operational costs," said Simon Boyce, SEAM Group CRO.

BarFly, the hospitality group that manages HopCat and Stella’s Lounge, has made two new C-level appointments, naming Craig Stage as its Chief Executive Officer and Andrew Woodruff as its Chief Financial Officer. Both were promoted from positions at the vice president level, where they have served for over two years. These personnel updates will support BarFly’s continued and future growth; the organization has opened three new successful restaurants in the last 15 months and is actively searching for more. 

Craig Stage was hired as an assistant restaurant manager 10 years ago and has steadily climbed the operations leadership ladder. He also worked as a General Manager for HopCat locations in Royal Oak, Lincoln, and Kalamazoo and worked as an Area Director for several years, before taking over VP of Operations. Stage will continue prioritizing his time at restaurants, working closely to serve our guests.  

“I am excited and grateful for this new opportunity,” said Stage. “Throughout my career, there has been one constant — being surrounded by great people. Our success will continue to come from a people-focused approach and open-door decision-making. I’m thrilled to be working alongside our incredibly talented teams and provide the best bars and restaurants we possibly can for both employees and guests.”   

Andrew Woodruff made the leap from public accounting to the BarFly team in May 2018 and rose through the ranks to the Controller position, before the pandemic. He returned with the sale of the company to Congruent Investment Partners and Main Street Capital as the VP of Finance in 2020. Woodruff guided the organization to greater financial security and prosperity over the past four years.  

“BarFly has always been a special company to be a part of,” said Woodruff. “When first moving to Grand Rapids, I always hoped to get an opportunity to work for BarFly and have enjoyed every minute since. We have a tremendous culture — full of bright, hardworking individuals. I’m humbled by the opportunity and eager to continue to foster the growth of our brands.” 

Former CEO Ned Lidvall will stay with the organization as an Executive Chairman. Lidvall has been an industry veteran for many years, working with brands including Old Chicago, Chi-Chi’s, and Rock Bottom. “There is no chance we would be where we are right now without Ned Lidvall’s leadership the last four years,” said Travis Baldwin, Founder of Congruent. “His steady hand helped us navigate a pandemic, multiple restaurant shutdowns, capacity restrictions, an incredibly difficult labor market, and extreme commodity inflation — and he handled it all with a calmness and professionalism that radiated across the Company. I can’t say enough about the positive impact Ned has had to get us to this point, and I look forward to continuing to work with him at the Board level.”
