This chapter specifies for each building descriptor the rules that apply to the proposed design and to the baseline building. Building descriptors are grouped under objects or building components. A wall or exterior surface (an object) would have multiple building descriptors dealing with its geometry, thermal performance, etc. Each building descriptor contains the following pieces of information.
|Building Descriptor Title|
|Applicability||Information on when the building descriptor applies to the proposed design|
|Definition||A definition for the building descriptor|
|Units||The units that are used to prescribe the building descriptor|
|Input Restrictions||Any restrictions on information that may be entered for the proposed desig|
|Baseline Rules||How the building descriptor applies to the baseline building|
