Wellington Industries has owned its present facilities since 1981, and Mary Dunlap, CEO, has authorized various expenditures to repair and improve the building during the current year. The building was beginning to sag, and without repair, the building would only last another 8 years. To correct the problem, the foundation was reinforced, and several columns were added in the basement area at a cost of $47,200. As a result, engineers estimate that the building will have a remaining useful life of 20 years. To install a new computer local area network (LAN) and be ready for the next generation of computers, the phone lines and electrical systems were updated at a cost of $81,300. Wellington engineers estimate that these improvements should last 25 years. The offices and open work spaces were rearranged to reduce exposure to electronic emissions at a material cost of $31,000. The purchase and installation of the computers and software for the LAN cost $102,700. The LAN hardware and software will have to be replaced in 6 years, but further rearrangement of the offices and work spaces will not be necessary. After the above improvements were completed, the entire building was painted inside and outside at a cost of $9,450. As controller of Wellington Industries, which one of the following actions would you recommend to be in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles?
