LAYTON, Utah (AP) -- U.S. Air Force officials and dignitaries planned to dedicate a new maintenance depot early Monday at Hill Air Force Base.

Officials say the 309th Software Maintenance Group building cost $37 million.

The government also spent $1.2 million to equip the facility, which includes a Human Development Laboratory.

It also features an outdoor atrium, a workout area, and a dining room large enough for special functions.

Sen.. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, was expected to join Maj. Gen. Andrew Busch and other military brass for Monday's ribbon-cutting.

The building was designed in part by the engineers and computer scientists who will use it for F-16 and F-22 operational flight programs.
