Building, location and special room names

Capitalize "building" when it is used as part of the formal name, e.g. "Warren Loranger Architecture Building." Do not capitalize, if using a generic reference to the building name, e.g. "Architecture building." Do not capitalize "building" when it is used alone, even in direct reference to a University building.
