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.
