The term ‘ground level’, or ‘ground floor’, is used to refer to the level of a building that is at ground / street level. The term ‘storey’ tends to refer to all levels of a building above the ground level.
It can also refer to the level of ground that has not be built on. The level of the ground before any excavation or filling has been carried out is referred to as the ‘natural ground level’, whereas ‘finished ground level’ is when it has been ‘finished’ with paving stones, asphalt, landscaped grass, and so on.
