[EnergyPlus_Support] Modeling an internally dominated building with an "eggcrate" shading device

Hello All:

I'm trying to model a single room for an office building where there is predominantly cooling throughout the year. I've successfully modeled an "eggcrate" shading device for the exterior of the room using a series of overhangs and vertical fins. The "eggcrate" shading device would ideally be populated over the entire south-facing facade of the building.

Do I have to model the entire building with this eggcrate device?! Or can I somehow repeat this room so that the idf thinks that the building is made up of these rooms?

Or can I just leave the model as one room, and somehow change the HVAC parameters for the room to act like a entire building?

Please help, I'm new to e+ and would appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you in advance.
