Are there any plans to make full OpenStudio models (including HVAC objects) of the Commercial Reference Buildings? Or is there an alternative source for standardized historical commercial building OS models? I know the BCL has whole models, but last I checked these are all Advanced Energy Design Guide models and are IDFs.

@aparker is out of the office today, but I'll let him address this in more detail tomorrow. The short answer is that we are working on OpenStudio reference buildings including HVAC objects. Andrew can provide more detail on the process and timeline.

Sorry for the duplicate, but when I originally searched "Commercial Reference Buildings" the other question that you pointed me to did not show up

@dpud12 No worries. This will happen. Our goal is to have one authoritative question so that others find it easier. I will edit the other question to make it easier to find.
