You will need to make a separate shell for the below grade levels. You can do this in the design development wizard. When creating the below grade shell, you will be able to import another .dwg file for the layout. The above grade and below grade levels may be aligned with their respective coordinates.

You need to model basement as a separate shell from the other 4 floors. You then need to change "Exposure" on wizard screen 3/25 for the above grade floors to "Over Conditioned Space (adiabatic)".

That should be all you need.
