Openstudio's multi-story Office Building

Hi I am relatively new to Openstudio's and have been tasked to render a 20 story office building as part of my final uni piece as well as simulate its daily operations. I ask if anyone has tips or advice on undergoing the most effective method for simulating a "multi-story building"??

I have tried simulating such an environment but come to find FAILED simulation readings because of a lack of "construction name" to all surfaces present. Is there a way to automatically assign such names as opposed to renaming 600+ surfaces?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
