The records of the North Carolina State University Design and Construction Services Department contain correspondence, plans, drawings, and other documentation related to the construction, renovation, and repair of buildings and other structures on the North Carolina State University campus.

In 1960 North Carolina State University established what was formerly known as the Campus Planning Office, which updated the 1958 plan. It envisioned a compact, high rise, pedestrian-scaled campus based on a ten-minute walking radius--all essential services were to be within a ten-minute walk from a central location. The plan for the University's urban center was thus established. The Campus Planning Office has since been renamed the Design and Construction Services Department, located under the authority of the Facilities Division in the Office of Finance and Business.
