But are they "commercial buildings"?

04/28/2010: Three Buildings in the Southeast Selected as Contestant in EPA National Building Competition:
"(ATLANTA – April 28, 2010) Three buildings in the southeast have been selected to participate in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA's) first national competition among commercial buildings to save energy and fight climate change. In the spirit of popular weight-loss competitions, the buildings will compete against 11 other buildings across the country to “work off the waste” through improvements in energy efficiency with help from EPA’s ENERGY STAR program. The building that sheds the most energy waste on a percentage basis will be recognized as the winner of EPA’s National Building Competition in late October 2010.
The three National Building Competition contestants in the Southeast are:

· Memorial Arts Building at the Woodruff Arts Center, Atlanta, Ga.
· Morrison Residence Hall at UNC Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, N.C.
· Tucker Residence Hall at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, N.C.
