Terrain Type and Building Use should be chosen for your project. Terrain Type will affect ground reflected irradiation on each Façade.  The type that corresponds the most to the typical terrain in the project should be selected. There is also a Multi-Use option.  Occupancy Hours may always be overridden and modified using the input fields provided.

Building Use will affect Building Occupancy Pattern, i.e. when people will occupy your building on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.  There are default times assigned to each type but once the Building Type is chosen, these times may always be manually over-ridden.

Occupancy Hour defaults for Building Types

Location Setting (Urban/Suburban/Rural) will determine the Maintenance Factor for Daylighting.  The Site location of the project is also read from Revit and will be used for climate and solar calculations, but it is not displayed by FenestraPro.  It is therefore important that the project location/address is correctly assigned in Revit.  This can be set in the Manage tab of Revit – Location.
