[EnergyPlus_Support] Heating load

All I am really trying to do for now, is to get some figures for 
Heating Load.
I created a model in Ecotect, then saved it as idf, and modifed a few 
bits and pieces to get it accepted by EPlus. Because I specifically 
want results for Zone/Sys Sensible Heating Rate, I modified my model 
to follow the purchair.idf model in ex files, added the various 
Heating Setpoints etc. However, i keep getting '0' for my Sensible 
Heating Rate when I run the simulation...
The error file comes back with quite a few errors, although Eplus 
seems to run successfully (but does it?). 
some severe errors are about:
"Base surface does not surround subsurface (CHKSBS)
Surface "OBJ:0001" misses SubSurface "SUBOBJ:0038"
I searched the Eplus yahoo forum archive but can't find anything on 
I also got the following error:
"Invalid Data Found on Weather Data File"
But I do get some results if I run the purchair.idf with my weather 
So where do I go wrong?
I've uploaded my model1.idf, the weather file I am using in the 
dedicated folder on this forum.
Hope you can find the obvious problem.
