Description

The Public Works Administration funded the construction of Clark Hall at the North Carolina State University in Raleigh NC.

Construction of Tenth Dormitory at North Carolina State College, Raleigh, NC: brick load-bearing exterior walls, steel columns with bar joists and concrete slab floor construction, and steel roof trusses with Porete slab and slate shingle roof. The interior finish was plaster with wood trim and Bruce block flooring. After a few years, the building became the college infirmary, and later a dining hall and office space.
