Constructing Airports and Facilities

Airports are important hubs housing passengers, cargo, airplanes, and vehicles. When planning an airport, it is complex and expensive, due to the many needs and services it must accommodate. While the complex nature of airports won’t change, good planning and flexible materials can make building an airport less costly. One way to lower costs is to use fabric buildings instead of traditional brick-and-mortar buildings. Fabric buildings are great for aircraft and cargo storage, passenger shelter, terminal buildings, and advanced systems. Fabric buildings are already part of the designs of some modern airports today. For example, the Denver International Airport uses fabric buildings and well known for it’s design. As airports receive updates and advance, fabric buildings find themselves as part of new designs.
