Commerce Drive Dental

Project Location - North Mankato, Minnesota

Brunton Architects & Engineers designed this 6,500 square foot “north-woods style” dental clinic for the Lor-Ray Drive Dental Group in North Mankato. The dental group had outgrown their existing facility and asked that the new building design reflect their individual tastes and appreciation of the outdoors. The building is equipped with 14 treatment rooms, sterilization, lab, private offices, and the most state-of-the-art dental equipment. The building’s larger Dutch hip dormers help admit an abundance of natural light throughout the building’s interior zones. Kasota Stone and heavy timber members were used to accentuate the prominent entrance. Long overhangs and shading trellises were designed to help shield the large windows from direct solar glare while maintaining natural lighting.
