The construction period is expected to take 20 months.

“So far around $2 million and $3 million has been invested in designs,” said Ayales.

With the new building, the legislative branch of government will no longer need to pay rent for six annex buildings that mainly house administrative and legislator offices. The rental budget for next year is ¢1 billion colones.

Housing all legislative functions in one building will also mean less costs on security.
