Currently, I have a openstudio model with a "packaged rooftop vav with reheat" hvac system serving my 2 thermal zones.

Is there any capital cost data of that equipment in openstudio? If not, may I ask how to estimate the capital of this hvac system?

In the past I have used the National Residential Efficiencies Measure Database to estimate capital costs for residential heat pump upgrades.

I don't know if it has data for a packaged rooftop vav with reheat though. Is your model for a commercial building?

Thanks for your reply! Yes, I'm designing a commercial office building!

RSMeans data is the industry standard reference for construction cost estimates, at least in the US.
