Spanish term or phrase: explanation
Could anyone explain what this text means? I think it means the building is essentially measured from where the facade meets the ground to the roof, but I'm not sure.

LA ALTURA DE LA EDIFICACION ES LA CORRESPONDIENTE A TODAS LAS FACHADAS EXTERIORES, MIDIENDOSE DESDE EL ENCUENTRO DE LA FACHADA CON EL PLANO DOMINANTE DEL TERRENO, HASTE EL PLANO INFERIOR DEL FORJADO DE CORONACION.

Thank you :-)
