Concept
Because of the rapidly growing global air traffic a mobile terminal was developed. The basic design of the terminal solutions allows the creation of buildings of different sizes, from about 120 sqm up to more than 1,000 sqm per building. The individual buildings can again be interconnected easily, allowing even bigger terminal sizes.

Structure
The containers, which are used to transport the steal-construction as well as for the structural support of the building. The wall can be opened and used as floor when the terminal is in operation. The surface is made by a membrane construction. On the container is fixed a roof-beam to tension the membrane.
