Tyndall is rebuilding as the base of the future with state-of-the-art technology.

Officials have been meeting with architects to make sure everything is up to standards.

One thing they want to take in account is how it will stand up to severe weather.

"Those standards are taking into account these severe weather conditions, so kind of the shape of the building, the positioning of the building with prevailing winds, we've taken those kind of things into account," said Brigadier General Patrice Melancon.

The rebuild project is estimated at $4.25 billion, which includes updating to state of the art technology and bringing in three squadrons of F-35s, starting as early as October 2023.
