   This item is to be coded after an educational plant survey team              
   has made a decision on the condition of the building.  Use the               
   appropriate code from the "Higher Education Facilities Inventory             
   and Classification Manual, 1973," pages 43-44, as listed below.              

TABLE VALUES:                                                                   
   0              Building Has Not Been Surveyed                                
   1              Satisfactory                                                  
                  Suitable for continued use with normal maintenance.           
   2              Remodeling - A                                                
                  Requires restoration to present acceptable standards          
                  acceptable standards without major                            
                  without major room-use changes, alterations, or modern-       
                  izations.  The approximate cost of "Remodeling A" is          
                  not greater than 25 percent of the estimated replace-         
                  ment cost of the building.                                    
   3              Remodeling - B                                                
                  Requires major updating and/or modernization of the           
                  building.  The approximate cost of "Remodeling B" is          
                  greater than 25 percent, but not greater than 50 per-         
                  cent of the estimated replacement cost of the building.       
   4              Remodeling C                                                  
                  Requires major remodeling of the building.  The               
                  approximate cost of "Remodeling C" is greater than 50         
                  percent of the replacement cost of the building.              
   5              Demolition                                                    
                  Should be demolished or abandoned because the building        
                  is unsafe or structurally unsound, irrespective of the        
                  need for the space or the availability of funds for a         
                  replacement.  This category takes precedence over cate-       
                  gories 1, 2, 3, and 4.  If a building is scheduled for        
                  demolition, its condition is recorded as "Demolition"         
                  regardless of its condition.                                  
   6              Termination                                                   
                  Planned termination or relinquishment of occupancy of         
                  the building for reasons other than unsafeness or             
                  structural unsoundness, such as abandonment of temp-          
                  orary units or vacating of leased space.  This cate-          
                  gory takes precedence over categories 1, 2, 3, and 4.         
                  if a building is scheduled for termination, its condi-        
                  tioon is recorded as "Termination," regardless of its
