The Bank of Utica Renovation and Addition is progressing steadily toward what will undoubtedly be a finished product of sophistication that this area has never before seen.
The project is in the skillful hands of Buck Construction, LLC, the project’s general contractor, who is not only renovating the existing building but has also expanded into the space next door. Materials such as glass floors and walls, terrazzo floors and state of the art linear lighting have been painstakingly chosen by owners Tom and Barry Sinnott and implemented into the design by architect Robert Heins. The building will boast exposed electrical conduit that will be showcased behind glass walls, cutting edge exterior LED lighting, and a clock tower that will measure approximately 140’ from the sidewalk to the top of the flagpole and change the city’s skyline forever.
“It is a privilege to be able to work with such a committed owner on this extraordinary project,” said Mike Scarafile, Boscar Electric’s President and CEO.
Boscar Electric Co. has been awarded the electrical contract for Notre Dame High School’s new 13,900 square foot addition. The new space will primarily house a new recreational gymnasium and performance stage, and will boast state-of-the-art theatrical lighting equipment and sound system. The gym will be used for physical education and music classes as well as youth basketball and volleyball. There will also be support space for locker rooms, storage and a concession area as well as a second story mechanical area. The project’s general contractor is National Building & Restoration Corp. and Boscar is happy to be a part of this exciting project.
Heidelberg Bakery’s new building in the Frankfort Industrial Park was completed in April. The first tenant in what is known as the Pumpkin Patch by local residents, Heidelberg Bread Company broke ground on their 42,000 square foot bread making plant in July of 2015. The Charles A. Gaetano Construction Company erected the new building with Boscar Electric contributing the electrical. The building and its equipment are state of the art and will more than double the company’s bread production as well as add 20 to 25 new jobs.
The summer of 2015 saw the opening of Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwich Shop in New Hartford. This was another electrical project by Boscar Electric in conjunction with the Charles A. Gaetano Construction Company. Wishing Jimmy John’s the best of success!
September saw the opening of Utica College’s new Welcome Center. Constructed by Charles A. Gaetano Construction with electrical by Boscar Electric, the 5,500 square foot building is located at the eastern-most corner of the campus and is visible from Burrstone Road. The structure is built of brick, blue stone, architectural metal and aluminum/glass, and parents and students alike were able to enjoy a warm fire in its beautiful stone fireplace during Homecoming Weekend.
After much research and comparison-shopping, Boscar Electric has purchased a new digital message board. It has been installed in its place of honor at the center of the sign located in our construction yard. Passersby can now see the time and temperature, information about some of the services we offer and even helpful tips on electrical safety on the approximately 9.5’ LED board.
Construction is complete on Boscar Electric’s newest addition, a stand-alone storage building located in our construction yard across from Boscar’s main building.
Contractor Nathaniel Weigand Builders, of Chittenango, broke ground the beginning of November, and the majority of the building was completed by Christmas. The structure now houses large-scale construction equipment that had previously been stored outside during winter months.
“The new building,” said owner Mike Scarafile, “will make an attractive backdrop for the new Boscar sign which will have a new digital message board at its center.”
A new building addition at Boscar Electric is nearing completion. The new 1,800 square foot structure will add additional room for materials and equipment.
Under construction during the summer months, the only thing that remains is the interior finishing touches.
“Our contractor (Charles A. Gaetano Construction, Inc.) has done a great job of working through the unpredictable weather we’ve had this summer,” said Mike Scarafile, owner of Boscar Electric.
The building will enhance both our material inventory and buying power.
This spring, Boscar Electric was awarded the electrical contracts for the rebuild of five McDonald’s Restaurants in Central New York. The work is now complete and sales are growing.
The five restaurants — located in Yorkville, Canastota, Mohawk Street in Utica, E. Clark Street in Ilion, and Herkimer — were upgraded as part of McDonald’s Corporation’s ever-continuing commitment to keeping their restaurants green and energy-efficient.
