  1. In facility label, If I assign the construction set and schedule set at the building story, are these settings automatically assigned on all the spaces? Or Should I assign the sets per each space?

  2. In the same label, with sorting building by thermal zone: to turn on the ideal air load, do I have to put a check mark for each thermal zone? Is there a faster way?

Thanks. A.

Construction and schedule sets applied at the building level do apply to all spaces, there is no need to set them at lower levels unless you want to override the building level defaults.

The "Apply Space Attributes" tool in the SketchUp plug-in will allow you to apply ideal air loads to every zone in your model. Just select all of your spaces before you run the tool.

There is also a BCL measure to enable ideal air loads for all zones., if you want to stay in the OpenStudio app.
