Orange Moment In History Trivia Question

The Carrier Dome was officially opened on September 20, 1980. It is the largest on campus sporting arena and yes, it is named after a heating/air company though it lacks air conditioning itself. Compared to the costs of today's ballparks/arenas, the amount it cost to build it back then might get you a scoreboard and a grassy field of land about that size.

What was the total construction cost and how much of that was a gift from the Carrier Corporation in exchange for the naming rights?
