Careport Animal Hospital (formerly Airport Animal Hospital) is a full-service veterinary hospital that has been family owned and operated since 1989. The new facility will be the first completely purpose-built facility that the practice will move into. The project has been designed from the ground up with animal (aka: patient), client, and staff well-being in mind.
Patient spaces have been designed in reference to fear-free veterinary hospital design standards. “Fear-free” informs best practices for daylighting, acoustic separations, acoustic noise reduction, colour schemes, HVAC design, dog and cat boarding layouts and enclosures, as well as treatment space, lobby, and exam room design.
The entire building has been designed to create a positive and healing environment for animals, caregivers, and clients.
Aurora is Regina’s newest retail destination. P3A designed a novel commercial retail building expression that captured the spirit of the Aurora moniker. Inspired by the beauty of a prairie sunrise, the architecture utilizes simple forms with bright colours and iridescent glass panels to catch sunlight throughout the day. Phase one is currently underway with several tenants open. The site is 68 acres and at full build-out will represent over 600,000 square feet of retail.
The Dream Commercial Campus in Harbour Landing is a 6.5 acre site with six multi-tenant CRU buildings. The concept is warehouse/office use with high-bay spaces that allow for optional mezzanine construction as part of the tenant fit-outs. The buildings are highly flexible and adaptable to suit a challenging zoning designation.
Grasslands is a diverse retail experience in Harbour Landing with three distinct areas: the Village is the heart of the Grasslands designed to create the feel of a town centre; the Specialty Districts balance the contemporary design of the Grasslands theme with the unique branding of the individual tenants; and the Convenience District is primarily for higher traffic tenants with heavily branded exteriors to be visible from long distances.
Throughout the three areas, design guidelines ensured key features, including pedestrian entrances with canopies, complementary colours, materials and signage, and landscaping that incorporated seating, pedestrian linkages and indigenous plants.
Acre 21 is a pedestrian-friendly, community retail site with a variety of dining and shopping destinations. P3A worked with Dialog in the development of a site master plan and prototypical building design. The buildings are a dynamic and contemporary style with a Main Street shopping experience. P3A has been responsible for the design of approximately 68,000 square feet of buildings with an additional 70,000 in Phase II.
The Jack J. Sharp Medical Building establishes a “gateway” to the Regina General Hospital, while providing the opportunity for small retail developments. The building is three stories with retail and office space on the ground floor, and medical office space on the second and third floors. The retail space is oriented along 14th Avenue to encourage pedestrian activity.
This project builds on the effort to invigorate the area and contribute to its continued transformation.
To accommodate a growing staff, an addition was added to Affinity Credit Union in Estevan that consisted of two floors and a fully developed basement. The addition was blended with the original architecture while at the same time implementing a modern aesthetic. The oak that was found throughout the existing building was carried into the new space to link the old and new together. Modern touches like glass, aluminum, and white quartz were used to give the addition a modern look.

Located in the heart of downtown Yorkton, a thriving small prairie city with a rich history, the liquor store is on the exact location where the Bronfman family began their liquor empire during the Prohibition era.
The building reflects its historic context while simultaneously creating a contemporary expression. The large corner window connects the building occupants to the life of the city, the horizontality allows natural light to flood the interior, planters are built into the base of the structure, and the interior graphics utilize archival images of the site and city.
