In the wake of 9/11, U.S. airports identified the need to make significant changes not only to the way they conducted passenger screening and onsite security, but also to the way airports were designed and built. Preassembled and modular structures became pivotal parts of the immediate redesign efforts, and remain so as airports now look at long term expansion and remodeling design. The biggest reason is simple- versatility.
Traditional construction is centered on creating something permanent that will be fixed in one orientation, in one location until it is torn down. Modular and pre-assembled buildings are attractive to airports because they can be moved as their use or the design footprint of the airport changes.
