Ferncliff Cemetery-Superintendent’s House

Ferncliff Cemetery – Superintendent’s House

Ferncliff Cemetery holds a special meaning to Springfield as it’s been an important part of the community for over 150 years. On the grounds of the cemetery stands what has been known as the Superintendent’s house. Constructed in 1890, the historic home housed the families of the cemetery’s ground superintendent. The home sat empty for approximately 20 years, and was in need of major renovations. C&N Contractors, Inc. was honored to be chosen as a contractor for the renovation to this historic structure. The building will be called “The House of Reflections”. The beautiful house will now be used as a final resting place containing 368 backlit, beveled, glass-fronted niches for placement of urns.

Both interior and exterior renovations were done to completely restore the house. Requiring upgrades for not only electrical, lighting fixtures, service panels and outlets, the work included new flooring and refurbishing of wood doors. Most of the original hardware was able to be salvaged and reused. There is now an addition of a stone side porch leading to the two new modern bathrooms. Interior improvements also included completing the kitchen with new cabinets and countertops, and the complete repair and painting of all walls and some new drywall throughout has transformed the interior look of the house.

One of the exterior improvements to the house is a new clay tile roof. We also installed a beautiful copper flashing that will not only prevent leaks between the roofing tiles and rafters, it brings on an accent of light. New downspouts were also put on the house to ensure drainage from storms. Also new windows installed help give the house an improved and updated look that will make visitors feel more comfortable. C&N Contractors was privileged to be a part of this project that will benefit the people of Springfield for years to come and preserve just one more of the outstanding old structures for our future generations to also enjoy.




Project Woman- Springfield


Project Woman- Springfield

Project Woman uses its facilities to provide services and programs to create a community free of domestic violence & sexual assault. Their efforts have helped many women over the years through services such as, emergency shelters, counseling, support groups, and a safe transitional housing program. Springfield is lucky to have such an organization as Project Woman in our community and C&N Contractors was pleased to be a part of the renovation and the fulfilling of some of their wishes for updates.

Multiple buildings at the Springfield High Street site needed both interior and exterior renovations. The Manor house received new flooring, installation of new water heaters and new plumbing. Renovations also included structural repairs to the front porch, the addition of a new storm door and the repair/ replacement of gutters and downspouts. The roof was re-shingled and brick-tuck pointing was completed to maintain moisture control due to weather.

Another property known as the Carriage House needed similar repairs such as the installation of new eaves, gutters, and downspouts. The stucco on the house had become deteriorated, so it was repaired along with an entire reroofing. The exterior doors were replaced with insulated doors, as well as the addition of new storm doors. Painting of the doors, windows, and trim brightened the exterior with the curb appeal of a warm welcome.

C&N also made renovations to the inside of the Carriage House as well. This included new flooring, new cabinetry, restroom vanities, sinks and commodes in multiple units throughout the house.





F.O.E. Shelter- Springfield


F.O.E. Shelter – Springfield

The Fraternal Order of Eagles is a non- profit charitable organization that uses their resources to aid others in need. C&N Contractors was called upon when the F.O.E Aerie #396 outdoor shelter on Selma Road was badly damaged by weather. C&N believes in building lasting relationships with clients through uncompromising integrity, and what better way to show that than to partner with an organization with similar beliefs.

Because of the extensive structural and roof damage, the project started with the demolition of the existing roof. This included complete removal of the damaged roof’s trusses and sheathing. Next, it was important that brand new trusses and sheathing were installed in order to guarantee reliable support for the new roof of the shelter. C&N Contractors added felt to the structure before adding on the new roof which consisted of sturdy asphalt shingles. The roof was finished with a length of 168 feet, width of 40 feet, and covered 3,360 square feet.

New electrical wiring was placed throughout the shelter along with the installment of light bulbs. Also, the addition of new gutters & downspouts will ensure that the shelter will have the appropriate drainage. The F.O.E can now hold their meetings and gatherings under a new and reliable shelter.

Parker Store – Triad Technologies

ParkerStore-Triad Technologies

This International retail chain decided to open a new store location in Springfield, OH to further their thriving business. Anderson Enterprises had the right building. Their 21,000 SF mixed use building was located just off I-70.  They wanted to divide this building into multiple retail spaces.  It was previously used as a grocery store, bingo hall, and most recently vacant.  When building owner, Anderson Enterprises, needed to construct a store for ParkerStores’ expanding business, they turned to C&N Contractors to construct this turnkey design/build project.

A great deal of the work went into the construction project. We had to design, procure permits, rezone, and complete construction in a short period of time.  To add to the challenge, we worked around ParkerStore as they brought in merchandise for their new store.  The project was completed on schedule for the ParkerStore grand opening.  Triad Technologies was pleased with the space and has indicated that sales have increased substantially in the new environment.  Anderson Enterprises immediately asked C&N to construct a second space for future tenant to rent.  We are in the process of building another tenant space.

Taylor Van Vliet was the Project Manager for this job.
