|Description:||This +100,000 sq. ft. building houses the College of Education with spaces for general use auditoriums, classrooms, offices and laboratories for education programs. The Carlson Education building, also, houses the Curriculum Materials Library which specifically serves students majoring in Education . This cast-in-place concrete building has stood up well in terms of overall structure but is difficult and costly to renovate. Cast-in-place concrete was commonly used in campus building construction in the 1960's and 1970's. The Carlson Education building is considered the best historic example of a cast-in-place concrete in southern Nevada .|
