Example Building 1 model 1#

Example Building 1 is a simplistic, reference tiny office building consisting of a single story with 5 rooms spanning 5 space types.

This reference building was developed for and first described in the journal article “Metadata Schemas and Ontologies for Building Energy Applications: A Critical Review and Use Case Analysis”.

This example Building 1 model 1 is provided by current and former NIST staff and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. See also Building 1 model 2 for a different modeling approach for the same building.
