Comfort Dental

Located in the southern metro area, Comfort Dental sought to be an inviting and calming dental experience. The space was designed with large windows that allowed soothing, natural light to bathe the patient rooms as well as the employee break room.

Cool, natural colors were utilized to mirror the sky as it reflected though the spacious windows. To personalize each operatory room, Progressive Architecture designed the walls to fold over the hallways. Light, natural wood tones warm the cool paint tones and harmonize with the warmer wood tones of the dental equipment.

The reception desk was designed to be airy and open, and the large lobby offers both a children’s area and a fish tank. Comfortable chairs and couches finish the look and create a welcoming atmosphere.

Progressive Architecture

Now relocated to White Bear Lake, Progressive Architecture chose to highlight their talents by converting an old office manufacturing building into their new design office.

Removing the typical acoustical ceiling to expose the metal deck opened up the space to feature up lighting. Partial height walls help to define spaces and create conferencing areas, work areas and semi-private offices.

Fun materials and graphics highlight their creativity and help to illustrate design ideas and concepts in order to sell them to their clients.

Advanced Molding Technologies

This plastic molding company’s success necessitated expansion into another building on their campus. As their clients are major medical companies, they wanted to ratchet up their image to appeal to their clientele subliminally.

Although budget conscious, Progressive Architecture was able to design the space with refurbished work stations, a current color palette and edgy materials that reflected the Owner’s interest in aviation.

RMS Medical

RMS specializes in the contract manufacturing of complex, tight tolerance medical device implants and surgical instruments. Progressive Architecture worked with RMS to create an addition to their manufacturing complex.

Working in conjunction with the owner and contractor; Progressive Architecture kept within a specified budget and time frame to produce the new addition. The building was created out of very economical pre-cast concrete panels to quickly and efficiently erect the structure. The outcome was a more efficient space for a growing company.

Qwest Parking Ramp 04 Nov

Qwest Parking Ramp

Originally constructed in 1963, this parking garage is actually a multi-use structure. In addition to the 112 parking stalls, it houses a 4-bay loading dock and an 8.3 mega-watt emergency power plant, both of which serve the adjacent 830,000 square foot high rise building.

The concrete parking decks had weathered and deteriorated to the point that they were considered unsafe. After Progressive Architecture conducted an extensive pre-design study to determine the most suitable course of action for this facility, the Owner elected to salvage the building due to the mission critical nature of the other uses housed within the building. The parking portion of the building was gutted to the structural steel frame and reconstructed.

Dellwood Country Club - Pool Area

Progressive Architecture worked with new management to re-brand Dellwood Country Club to create a casual, family friendly environment.

The first phase of construction designing a new Pool Building, complete with outdoor dining, walk-up bar and changing rooms was intended to be an attractive selling point for new members. Working with pool designers, an organic shaped “lazy river” and new lap swimming pool was developed to appeal to families.
