The best method to control the ToC view would be to group similar features into a folder. You can add a new field called "FolderPath" then calc an appropriate folder for similar features.
BuildType =1 > FolderPath = 'buildings / 1'
BuildType =2 > FolderPath = 'buildings / 2'
BuildType =3 > FolderPath = 'buildings / 3' ..etc
