Knowing it will be a wide range "depending". But are there any published metrics for expected costs for various levels of calibration?

What kind of costs? To calibrate a model, you usually compare the actual energy bill to the simulated result, so it depends on what kind of data you can get. but there are some statistical index to decide if the model represents the actual situation well, I will start with the ASHRAE 14 to get some general idea about how to do the energy model calibration.
