What is Water Table (architectural) ?
Definition of Water Table (architectural) in Construction
The upper trim piece of a skirt constructed of different material than the remainder of the facade, usually running along the perimeter of a structure. In many instances the architectural facade of a structure will include a running band of varying height with a cap stone, or other means of transition at the top of this band. This is commonly referred to as the water table of the structure. This is an architectural identification of aesthetic detailing and not the water table identifying the elevation of the saturated material below the surface of the site.
