Are you trying to apply ASHRAE 90.1 for a building in Singapore?  I think you should check 
first the commercial building energy standard in Singapore, instead.  However, if  you do 
want to do a simulation in accordance to the ECB method in ASHRAE 90.1, the Reference 
Building should be architecturally the same as your Proposed Building, but with shell 
conditions as prescribed in the standard for the appropriate Climate Zone, which for 
Singapore must be Climate Zone 1.  For more information on ASHRAE 90.1 modeling rules, 
please look at the ECB chapter (Chapter 11 in the 2004 version, my latest) of the standard.
