In 1963 there were 51 members of parliament in Singapore. By 1983 it grew to 75 and because of this there was a demand for more space. So in 1989 First Deputy Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong proposed the idea to build a new parliament house.
In 1992, the project was approved by the government with a budget of S$148.2 million.
Construction began in 1995 and was completed in July 1999 at a cost of S$115.2 million.
On 4 October 1999, the building was officially opened with a simple ceremony.
