Create prototype building for NECB (Canada)

I'm trying to create a DOE prototype building from the measure "Create DOE Prototype Building" for NECB 2011 (Canada).

I have a local instance of the measure because I had to correct the code, I had the following error: "wrong number of arguments (given 5, expected 0; required keywords: template, building_type, epw_file)". So I passed these 3 arguments in the function prototype_creator.model_create_prototype_model(). The error disappeared after this modification.

But now, I have the following error: "File does not exist: :/ruby/2.7.0/gems/openstudio-standards-0.2.14/lib/openstudio-standards/standards/necb/NECB2011/data/geometry/SmallOffice.osm". I suppose that this file does not exist in the embedded openstudio-standards gem.

I've already tried the steps recommended in the link: CLI reference in order to install a local gem, but still no success.

Thank you for your help!

The DOE prototype model measure cannot be used with the NECB rulesets. They use entirely separate workflows and data sources within the gem.
