How to calculate the Revaluation Reserve

Example

I have a building that has a historical cost of $100000. The accumulated depreciation is $60,000, therefore Net Book Value is $40,000. It is found that this building actually has a fair (market) value of $120,000.

What is the correct double entry is and how do I calculate my Revaluation Reserve ?
