I checked a little the linked shop, 1 installation can handel the case, you can do a similar site using 2 Joomla menu and using 2 layouts for eg. and checking logged user for the professional part.
You can even use 2 templates or styles for each part.
The advantages are the products and site management if you only use one installation..
In any case, you have to modify the PHP code(most can be done using templates overrides) to prevent certain parts displayed for the professionals from being visible by the other customers, if you use 1 or 2 installations.

Hi Kevin,

You can email me about this... see profile

You can see here an example I have done of a retail/wholesale VM store

https://www.4wdpartshop.com.au/my-account/editaddresscartBT.html

basically how you register is presented with differing fields .. if as a wholesaler this is subject to approval by admins  .. if approved they are joined to the Shopper Group that allows them to buy at wholesale prices etc
