The Parliament complex — officially called Sappaya Sapasathan, or “place of assembly for good deeds” 

Ahh, the irony... some other name suggestions:

"place of nepotism, cronyism and white-washing", "where the stupid laws come from", "center of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"

lack of qualified tradesmen is the reason any building in Thailand are very suspect, cheap materials so more profit is made, govt jobs  being given to the cheapest quote so the awarding officer can pocket more money, the winning contractor then getting their own quotes and keeping the difference from the lowest quote again, this is repeated till there is not enough money to use quality materials and they have to use cheap labour and cut corners. Any tecnical people overseeing the construction/s are told to toe the line or things will happen to them and their families, people winning quotes being killed( a family friend was shot after winning a quote,), the graft & corruption is that bad in Thailand what else can you expect but suspect work on everything from roads to bridges and buildings, profit/graft over rule everything else, roads fall apart within months because no raod base/just red dirt used(if at all), bridges collapse due to second hand materials and buildings fall apart/floors collapse etc due to garbage materials/lack of oversight

The location was deemed the best of the three options.
