Related to the previous question, I want to know more about how baseline building is generated by measure. Reading through the measure, below is the main script generating baseline building in create baseline building measure.
success = model.create_prm_baseline_building(building_type,standard,climate_zone,custom,build_dir,debug)
However, I cannot search detail description of this API. Are there any documentation or source code open to public?

Here is the Github respository for the openstudio-standards gem, which contains all the methods used to create the baseline (and prototype) models. There is a documentation page linked from there.

Here is the specific method def.

The line you quoted indicates the measure is in the older (pre-0.2.0) version, prior to a pretty significant code structure refactor. If you don't want to update to the post-0.2.0 versions, you can download the previous (0.1.15) source code here.

@Eric Do you know what happened to the method "create_prototype_building"? It's not in standards or in the main openstudio source.
