While there remains some work to be completed, most of the building is ready for occupancy

 

A look at the main floor foyer from west side rear entrance showing the elevator and staircase for the three floor building.

A close up look at the expansive main floor that will be taken up by the Ponoka Jubilee Library along with meeting and classroom space as well as Campus Alberta space.

On the second floor, just off a foyer with public washrooms is what will be the Town of Ponoka’s main counter where the public can speak to staff, make payments or perform any other business with the town. Behind the counter lies a series of offices on either side of the building along with some meeting spaces and prep work area.

This view shows the second floor staff and lunch room, shot from the counters on the south end, with plenty of space to sit plus the doors at the north end provide access to outdoor patio.

More big picture windows shed light into another large and spacious, yet unfinished, room on the west side of the third floor.
