Senators and House of Representatives members are to relocate from their main chambers to temporary venues for plenary as the contractor handling the  renovation of the National Assembly Complex resumes work. 
 
Reports say Senators will temporarily conduct plenary at Committee Room 022 on the ground floor of the New Senate Building, while House of Representatives members will use spacious Committee rooms on the ground floor of its new wing as plenary venue. 

It said the  contractor has 16 months to execute the job with alternative arrangement in place for plenary.
Members of House of Representatives are expected to utilize the halls on the first and second floor of the House of Representatives new building. 

There is also plan to use teleconferencing technology to link all lawmakers who may not be able to find seat at the Committee Room on to the ground floor,  the contractor handling the renovation project officially took over the Complex on Wednesday.

There have been several inconveniences of roof leakages experienced in the past, and one of the major areas of attention is to redress the roof leakages and make the entire roof of the White House watertight.

Next is the cooling system.Some of the committee rooms and central lobbies have faced challenges with temperature regulation because some of the chillers are out of service.

The last few days have been very hot for lawmakers in the Senate at plenary, forcing presiding officers to hurriedly adjourn.

Repairs are also expected to be done on the lifts, as well as the toilet water systems.

The plumbing and other equipment fittings that have worn out will also be properly fixed.
