The baseline cost is all the code minimum (baseline) options taken together with the geometry. So any option which has a cost/area value is multiplied properly to compute the cost. We do not need to know the overall building cost since it’s a decision-making tool and not a costing tool. The key is having something as a baseline and being able to see the impact/tradeoffs of different options.
