Over a 40-year span, Carter Williams' firm gave shape to more than 600 projects throughout the state, including the NC Archives Library in Raleigh, buildings at East Carolina University, the renovation of the Governor's Mansion, and Raleigh's City Hall Complex.

From 1939 to 1941 he was an assistant professor at the NCSU School of Design. In 1954, the School of Design's "Matsumoto Wing" of Brooks Hall, home of the NCSU School of Design, was designed by George Matsumoto with Carter Williams as the "Architect of Record." Partner Macon Smith was heavily involved in this project along with Carter's brother Turner Williams.

Carter Williams designed the firm's office at 2806 Hillsborough Street, built in 1962 in the International Style.

Each year the AIANC awards the F. Carter Williams Gold Medal, their highest honor, to an individual in recognition of a distinguished career or extraordinary accomplishments as an architect.
