Typical building materials for an office building

  1. Jun 26, 2011 #1
    Hello all,

    I'm modelling an office building using Google SketchUp to determine its cooling load during summer.

    Unfortunately, the default building materials (external walls, floor, roof etc.) seem like they are for residential buildings.

    Can someone please tell me what are the typical office building materials used for the composition of external walls, floor and roof (along with thickness) so I can resemble a real life scenario?

    It will be really great if the data provided is more specific to the Middle East region (namely United Arab Emirates).
