National Assembly Commissions Building, Nicaragua

The project involved erecting of a new building for the National Assembly of Nicaragua, to be situated on top of an existing structure under construction. The building will form a concrete "L" shape, surrounding the current assembly plenary hall which has two stories in the north wing and three unfinished stories in the west wing.

The total project involved constructing a total of 4000 m2 over the course of four phases. These included surrounding works such as the construction of two squares: one on the corner of the intersection of Avenida Bolívar and Tercera Calle Sur, which was then being used as a parking lot; and the other at the northern entrance, which was to be an expansion of the current one at the time. The plan also included the construction of a new parking lot on Cuarta Calle Sur opposite the Olof Palme buildings.
