MAKURDI AIRPORT TERMINAL BUILDING, MARKURDI, BENUE STATE

INTRODUCTION

The topic of airport passenger terminal construction must include a discussion of transportation. Transportation has remained one of the most important factors influencing a country’s development. The credibility of this statement has been demonstrated over the centuries, as a critical examination of earlier civilizations, from the time of early Egyptian civilization to the current civilized world, reveals that many of the great feats accomplished during these civilizations would have been impossible without one form of transportation or another. Transportation (or transportation) is the movement of people, animals, and goods from one location to another. Air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline, and space travel are all modes of transportation. The field could be Infrastructure, vehicles, and operations are separated. Transportation is important because it allows people to trade, which in turn establishes civilizations. Roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals, and pipelines are examples of transportation infrastructure, as are terminals such as airports, railway stations, bus stations, warehouses, trucking terminals, refueling depots (including fuelling docks and fuel stations), and seaports. Terminals can be used for both passenger and cargo interchange as well as maintenance. Automobiles, bicycles, buses, trains, trucks, people, helicopters, and aircraft may all travel on these networks. Operations are concerned with how the vehicles are operated, as well as the procedures established for this purpose, which include financing, legalities, and policies. In the transportation industry, infrastructure operations and ownership can be either public or private. Depending on the country and mode of transport. Thus, transportation can be divided into three broad categories: land transportation, water transportation, and air transportation. Land transportation is the most common and has existed since the dawn of civilization. Land transportation can take various forms, depending on the society’s sophistication, stage of civilization and development, and technical stratum. It can be done with animals (camels, mules, horses, dogs, etc.) or with machines (wheelbarrows, carts, cars, etc.). Similarly, water transportation has been around for as long as humanity can remember. Water transportation, like land transportation, has grown in complexity, technical superiority, and utility. Air transportation began in the twentieth century. The The superiority of air transportation over other modes of transportation can be attributed to the reason for its progressive growth and preference as the safest modern mode of transportation.

1.1.0 BACKGROUND TO THE PROJECT

The airport terminal is a structure at an airport that connects passengers to ground transportation and the facilities that allow them to board and disembark from aircraft. Passengers purchase tickets, transfer their luggage, and go through security at the terminal. Concoures are the buildings that provide access to the airplanes (via gates). However, depending on the airport’s layout, the terms terminals and concourses are interchangeable. Smaller airports typically have one terminal, whereas larger airports may have multiple terminals and/or concourses. In small airports, a single terminal building typically serves as both a terminal and a concourse. Some larger airports, such as Denver International, have a single terminal that connects to multiple concourses via walkways, skybridges, or underground tunnels. Some larger airports, such as New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, have multiple terminals, each with one or more concourses. Other larger airports, such as Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, have multiple terminals, each with the functions of a concourse. According to Frommers, most airport terminals are built in a straightforward manner, with the concrete boxes of the 1960s and 1970s giving way to glass boxes in the 1990s and 2000s, with the best terminals attempting to incorporate ideas of light and air. Some, like Baghdad International Airport, are monumental in scale, while others, like Terminal 1 at Charles de Gaulle Airport near Paris or Terminal 5 at New York’s JFK Airport, are architectural marvels. Some are designed to reflect local culture, such as the Albuquerque International Sunport terminal in New Mexico, which is designed in the Pueblo Revival Style popularized by architect John Gaw Meem, and the Bahiasde Huatulco International Airport in Huatulco, Oaxaca, Mexico, which features some palapas that are interconnected to form the airport terminal building.
