Expansion of Israel’s parliament the ‘Knesset’

General Description

Preparation of the project’s master plan was consolidated by the Knesset Steering Committee. Construction was carried out through D.B.O.T. (Design-Build-Operate-Transfer) and was tendered by “Shafir” Construction Co. Total building area stands at 48,000 sqm. The scope of work included the following program elements: Offices for members of parliament and supporting functions of Knesset activities, a new committee bld., a new entry, an underground parking facility beneath the existing Knesset piazza, a new energy building, new roads and comprehensive landscaping within the new addition. The new wing was built on the eastern slopes of the Knesset compound in a terraced way, so to avoid the obstruction of view to the historic Knesset building.
