Mansards, a roofing technique dating to the 1700's, are being installed on the U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Reserve Command Combined Headquarters Building. This May 27, 2010 photo shows workers placing distinctive rust red-colored tiles that will echo the style of architecture prevalent at the historic Main Post area of Fort Bragg, N.C. From new roof lines to historic windows and floor tile, supporting contract firms and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are taking appropriate measures to maintain the historic symbolism, aesthetics and atmosphere that have always been an important part of living and working on the Fort Bragg cantonment.
