The building height is the vertical distance between finished grade and the highest point on the building, provided that the measured elevation does not include fill or berms. However, on sloped sites the building height is measured from the average finished grade to the highest point on the building.
What Is the Height of the Building?
The building height refers to the vertical dimension of a building. It is typically measured from the lowest point on the ground to the highest point on the building.
The height of a building can be affected by a number of factors, including the height of the surrounding terrain, the type of foundation used, the type of construction materials used, and the type of roofing materials used.
In general, the taller the building, the greater the wind load on the structure and the more expensive the construction costs.
