Dear friends,

I'm not a native english speaker and could use some help with this technical expression.

Could someone explain to me what does 'as-built' mean?

For example in this part of an abstract of a seismic analysis article:

"Some results of predictive numerical analyses, both for 'as-built' and 'isolated' configurations are illustrated and discussed."

What would be the differences between the 'as-built' model and the 'isolated' model used in the above numerical analysis study?

Thank you.
