Sparkman Wharf 

Raynor Company Group was employed with the task of remodeling the former Channelside Bay Plaza from its previous design and purpose of movie theaters and retail complex to a new modern facility of Class A office space, restaurants, and retail shops. Our scope of work began in March of 2019 and completed on April 30th 2020.


Raynor Company Group had to reframe almost 85% of the existing skin of the building after additional steel was added in order to support the new design of the project. The new cladding consisted of Resysta 7” Rainscreen composite wood boards with a field applied “white washed” stain and sealer and a STO Therm CI EIFS system with STO Lotusan finish. STO Gold Coat fluid applied waterproofing was installed beneath all new exterior cladding locations and the limited amount of EIFS that was existing was recoated with STO Lotusan paint. Exterior ceilings were installed on new suspension systems with a combination of Thermory “Benchmark Series” 1x6 tongue and groove wood planks and STO DEFS systems with STO Lotusan finish. Raynor Company Group also installed the TREX composite wood decking at the Social Stair seating area that was created within the old exterior staircase.


Raynor Company Group completed the interior scope of work consisting of new framing and drywall of partitions, shaft walls, soffits, and ceilings at the two-story lobby, new entry corridors, restrooms, and back of house facilities.  In addition, Resysta 7” Rainscreen composite wood was installed at the interior lobby walls, as well as the Thermory 6” T&G wood at the lobby ceilings. Acoustical ceilings at entry corridors and back of house facilities were installed as Armstrong 9/16” grid system with Ultima 2X2 Tegular tiles. Other specialty items provided by Raynor Company Group were River Rock at the lobby entry feature, FRP panels at back of house locations, and Construction Specialties 2” building expansion joint assemblies.


As a result of strong emphasis to safety, Raynor was able to perform all this scope without a single lost time recordable accident.  Raynor Company Group has exceeded their own expectations in completing this challenging project, honored to be a part of it and will remember this project as one if its finest.
