Remodeling changes the use of building space or refurbishes to make space more functional or more cosmetically appealing.
Other building costs include installing equipment that is permanently attached to a building structure so that it cannot be removed without costly or extensive alterations. Such permanent equipment includes the following: non-portable, single-room air-conditioning units; fire protection systems; water distributing systems; heat distributing and electrical distributing systems; elevator shafts; utility outlets; and computer cabling.
If $100,000 or More
If the total acquisition cost of remodeling or other permanent modifications is $100,000 or more, the purchase is coded as a capital acquisition to object/sub-object code 7890 11, “Building Improvements/Remodeling.”
If Less than $100,000
If the total acquisition cost of remodeling or other permanent modifications is less than $100,000, the item is coded as an operational (“Repairs and Maintenance”) purchase. Object/sub-object code 7320 17 is used for materials and 7310 52 is used for labor.
