There is also one reception area on the ground floor, and there are 19 floors for the 331 offices for both members of the National Assembly and Senate.

It also has four floors hosting 26 committee rooms, an open garden floor, a state-of-the-art restaurant, a health club, a service floor and a Gym.

Under the section of Nairobi’s Harambee Avenue that stretches from Parliament Road and Uhuru Highway lies a Sh150 million is where the tunnel lies that connects the main parliament buildings with the new ultramodern Bunge Towers.

The construction of the five-meter-wide, 120-meter-long tunnel was specifically to ‘protect lawmakers from the prying eyes of their constituents. The tunnels are also fitted with ducts to facilitate power, data, and voice transmission to the adjacent buildings.

Speaker Kingi noted that the facility will help the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) save around Ksh. 400 million annually, which went to renting facilities for parliamentary meetings.

The Tower is situated directly across Parliament buildings and members of Parliament are expected to begin moving into the multi-billion-shilling Bunge Tower soon.
