shell command to spawn new terminal window

hi,

I need to write a shell script which gcc compiles my server / client app (server.c and client.c) and then runs them in separate terminal windows.  how can i spawn these new terminal windows?
echo 'Compiling client...'
gcc Client.c -o Client
 
echo "Compiling server..."
gcc Server.c -o Server -lpthread
 
echo "Running server..."
./Server

Open in new window
