The Parking Lot Size Calculator is designed to help you quickly and easily calculate the necessary dimensions of a parking lot, including the total area, number of parking spaces, and space area per parking spot.

This tool offers both a Basic Calculator and an Advanced Calculator for different scenarios, whether you’re calculating the size of a standard lot or need to consider handicap spaces.

**To use the Basic Calculator:**

- Enter any two of the following values: Number of Spaces, Area per Space (ft²/space), or Parking Lot Size (ft²).
- Leave one field empty, and the calculator will automatically calculate the missing value when you press the Calculate button.
- If you wish to reset the fields, click the Reset button.

For more advanced calculations, the **Advanced Calculator** allows you to estimate the area required for handicap parking spaces:

- Enter the Total Parking Lot Size (ft²), Average Space Size (ft²/space), and Required Handicap Spaces (%).
- Press the Calculate button to determine the Total Handicap Space Area (ft²).

**How to calculate**

**Example 1: Basic Calculator**

**Step** |
**Calculation** |

**Number of Spaces** |
50 spaces |

**Area per Space (ft²)** |
300 ft²/space |

**Parking Lot Size (ft²)** |
(to be calculated) |

**Multiply Spaces by Area** |
50 × 300 = **15,000 ft²** |

In this example, the number of spaces and area per space are provided, and the calculator determines that the total parking lot size is 15,000 ft².

**Example 2: Advanced Calculator**

**Step** |
**Calculation** |

**Total Parking Lot Size (ft²)** |
20,000 ft² |

**Average Space Size (ft²/space)** |
300 ft²/space |

**Required Handicap Spaces (%)** |
10% |

**Calculate Handicap Area** |
20,000 × (10 / 100) = **2,000 ft²** |

In the advanced example, the total handicap space area is calculated based on the total parking lot size and the percentage of handicap spaces required. Here, 10% of a 20,000 ft² lot is dedicated to handicap parking, resulting in 2,000 ft² of handicap space.
