Carmina Wood Design celebrates grand opening

Posted

UTICA — Carmina Wood Design, an architecture, engineering and interior firm, has opened an office in downtown Utica. The new location is the firm’s first office in the Mohawk Valley and their third office overall, with offices in Buffalo, North Carolina and now a location at 54 Franklin Square.

“This office right here in Utica, New York is the third for Carmina Wood Design and critical to our growth here in New York,” said Steven Carmina, president and CEO of Carmina Wood Design.

After their success of renovating the former Globe Woolen Company Mills building, 811 Court St., into the Lofts at Globe Mills, the firm has wanted to establish a physical presence in the city of Utica.

“Our love for this city was fast and really unrequited I think right from the beginning,” Carmina added. “The experiences we shared while completing Globe Mill confirmed that Utica was and is a city on the rise, as proven by the commissions and clientele we have been fortunate to create relationships with so far.”

Carmina Wood Design is already working on several new projects in Utica, including renovations for the Olbiston Apartments, Chancellor Apartments and the 700 Broad St. building.

“It was once described to me [that] beautiful design brings hope to people and the dignified living spaces you’re giving to all sorts of people, it has such an impact,” said First District Councilor Katie Aiello, welcoming Carmina and his company to the area. “Yes, these buildings don’t go to waste, but the people here deserve that level of investment, too.”
