75 Engineering Group (75CEG)
Service or Branch:
Hill Air Force Base, UT
A typical Air Force installation consists of operational facilities (e.g., hangars, flightlines), training facilities, support facilities, housing, and base-wide infrastructure (e.g., utility systems). It also includes natural infrastructure assets, such as air, space, land, and water resources. Installation engineering organizations maintain the installation by the planning, acquiring, building, sustaining, managing, operating, and divesting of both natural and manmade infrastructure. These organizations ensure installations have the natural infrastructure to support current and future missions and to maintain compliance with environmental requirements. To complete their mission, installation engineering organizations at Air Force bases encompass a variety of occupational areas including engineering disciplines, architects, realty specialists, housing managers, environmental professionals, financial managers, biologists, firefighters, electricians, carpenters, painters, and more.
