Two problems concerning modeling, verication and simulation of buildings are presented in this thesis. In the rst problem, we have proposed a generalized event driven framework for the simulation of building occupancy. Building occupancy models are crucial for building energy simulation and research, however generating an occupancy model that is able to simulate real occupancy pattern is a challenging task. Humans work together in groups and their presence is aected by events. So the proposed framework incorporates the concept of events and groups. Unlike the existing building occupancy models which were based on Markov chain, the proposed framework is fully event driven and group based which makes it closer to reality. The proposed framework can be used to simulate the occupancy patterns for any building be it an oce, lab or even a house. It can also capture sudden increase and decrease in the building occupancy.
