As per AS-10 Fixed Assets, any amount spent for the long term benfit should be considered as Capital Expenditure. Therefore, the amount spent for the Building is a Capital Expenditure which should be Capitalise fully.

If the new asset has come into existence and expenditure has really increased the efficiency of the existing asset whatever it would be irrespective of the amount of expenditure should be capitalised.
