I prepared two construction set for Office part and Podium part and tried to apply them based on the floor as shown below image.
However, when I investigate idf file exported from OpenStudio, I find many BuildingSurface:Detailed which has different construction I specified.
I didn't set any Default Construction Set in Space Type,Space,Facility:Building.
Does anyone have any idea what is defining the construction?
Also, what is the priority order if Default Construction Set is specified by multiple aspect (e.g. Space Type,Space,Facility:Building)

Hi Katsuya,

You can check the following image for inheritance model. I hope it helps.

So, Kindly check or remove the construction assignment at space or space type. If we go by the inheritance model, it should work.
