To my understandings - you cannot create new ones. Below is an image of the existing types available.

Maybe I am not fully understanding you.

The building type and space type parameters are used for calculating heating and cooling loads. You can adjust these settings from the default values - but over all this helps to set the parameters for the model and then down to spaces to create accurate analysis for load calculations.

 

You cannot add to or remoeve the existing spaces.

 

Not sure if this relaly helped...

Hi all,

 

Actually, the main problem is that,

 

We are trying to define a space or building type, except already defined ones. The main question is, how can i define room conditions instead of existing? For example, i would like to set a room as a pharmaceutical laboratory, which needs very special conditions. Could you please tell how can we adjust and dedicate settings of the room?

 

Thanks in advance,

Did you ever find a solution to the problem of space types?

My firm is primarily in the design of bio-tec and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. As you know none of the Revit “space types” even come close to suiting our needs for space types. If I/we cannot add any space types then the Revit analysis tools are essentially useless to both of us. So now back to my question: Have you found a work around or a way to create additional space types? The only way that I can think of is to use another space type ex. “conference” and change its characteristics to match an “MSI lab/clean room.”   

Or, if anyone else has a solution to this problem please reply.

Unfortunately, I believe that is the only solution at this time.
