Plans have been unveiled for the renovation of the parliament building in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which has been affected by structural defects.

The MYR485m ($154.8m) expansion will see the construction of a new MYR55m ($17.5m) chamber and a new six-storey building for administration and offices for members of the parliament.

The new MYR300m ($95.7m) six-storey building is set to house administration and offices for MPs.

The present chamber will also undergo refurbishment and rehabilitation work at a cost of MYR130m ($41.5m).

Parliament House currently comprises two parts, a three-storey main building and a 17-storey tower.

Work on the project is expected to begin next year and be complete in three years, following government approval, according to themalaysianinsider.com.
