Imagine Clearwater and The BayCare Sound

Clearwater, FL

A Waterfront Icon Reimagined with KHS&S Craftsmanship

A transformative waterfront redevelopment in Downtown Clearwater, Florida is creating a world-class outdoor destination serving both locals and visitors.

KHS&S contributions to Imagine Clearwater at Coachman Park, Clearwater’s signature 24-acre waterfront entertainment venue, included a customized rain screen exterior finish system for maximum water drainage, interior metal framing, drywall at the and shell, dockmaster’s office and two large bathroom areas.

Specialty finishes over the park’s centerpiece 4,000-seat covered bandshell building, a complex installation of an interior sound isolation ceiling (often used in libraries and movie theaters) with two layers of drywall and insulation. KHS&S also installed an exterior structural framing system for the attachment of a sound absorbing metal panel system on the stage which required exceptional coordination and planning to complete.

The unique radius of the bandshell was covered with a thick foam system to adhere to the concrete with a relatively new product for KHS&S installers, StoTherm ci® MVES, a fully engineered EIFS with drainage features that was utilized for thermal performance and durability as a water-resistive barrier system resulting in a finished product that will be enjoyed for decades.
