To import 90.1-2007 Space Type definitions into your model:

With your model open in the OpenStudio app, go to "Components & Measures" tab at the top and select the "Apply Measure Now" option. Select the "SpaceTypeAndConstructionSetWizard" Measure from the Whole Building -> "Space Types" measure category: image description

You can also do this in Sketchup through "Extensions" -> "OpenStudio user scripts" -> "On Demand Template Generators" -> "Space Type and Construction Set Wizard": image description

Another way is to the built in library OSMs: File > Load Library > [building type].osm

I'm trying to load and assign 90.1-2013, similar to the ways shown above. I believe it loads in the OS app, but when I try to set their attributes to the model via the User Script above, 2013 wasn't listed. I used Load Library and selected the 90.1-2013 model and then went to Assign Attributes to selected spaces but 2013 is not listed.

@Kent Beason - if you're using the measure make sure it's up to date and that you don't have more than one copy in your local BCL folder (open it in a text editor and search for the name of the measure).

I tried the measure but it failed. Standard Output: [13:40:22.787153 ERROR] undefined method get_lookup_name' for # C:/Users/kbeason/BCL/7c65af63-4316-47c9-b7a5-68d7a019e533/dbdff25f-80a5-4b11-ad8c-4de6cf239a54/measure.rb:166:inrun' ...
