Our Projects

Equipment Foundations

Equipment Foundations

C&N has served the manufacturing industry for over 60 years.  Here C&N employees are putting in wash trenches and equipment foundations for automotive glass production at the old General Motors Truck & Bus Plant in Moraine, OH.

Springfield Regional Medical Center

Springfield Regional Medical Center- Fitness Center

C&N recently completed the tenant fit out work for the human Resource department along with a new employee fitness center. The fitness center was complete with rubber sports floor material, lockers, and fitness equipment as well as a remodel of the space provided.


Mahle Loading Dock Openings

Mahle- Xenia

C&N Contractors were able to meet the growing needs of Mahle by increasing their facilities loading dock openings and making their space compatible with increased requirements. C&N Contractors designed and implemented the structural designs for new dock openings.

The job required their openings to be increased by one foot on each side making them 9’X10’. In order to do so, existing steel lintel was torch cut and removed, and replaced with a new steel angle system that acted as a temporary shoring and the permanent steel to support the over 20’ block walls.  This design allowed for reduced cost and early completion of the project.  C&N self-performed the demolition, masonry, structural steel erection, and painting work for additional cost savings to the owner.


Ohio Valley Medical Center

Ohio Valley Medical Center- Breast Cancer Center

C&N Contractors were called upon build their brand new Breast Center.  Ohio Valley Medical Center is proud to be the first in the region to host new technology including their 3-D mammogram system and Whole Breast ultrasound.  Both doctors and nurses are extremely excited to bring quality and more efficient care to their patients.  C&N contractors brought this dream to life in a timely matter by working weekends and evenings to ensure a smooth transition as we built the state of the art center from the ground up.


Memorial Hospital of Union County

Memorial Hospital of Union County – Administration Office Alteration

This project was completed on a seventy-five day schedule and included working under a heliport that was in use throughout. What made this interesting was the new windows that were cut into the walls had to have expertly installed shoring to support the structural integrity of the building while the helicopters were in use.

The project size was 11,000 square feet on the second floor of the Hospital. It included complete renovation of the administrative office space.  Demolition took everything down to a clean slate and then the construction brought it back to fully usable space.  It included the reception area, the work room, the Board room, the employee lounge, and all adjoining spaces.

Jeff York, Vice President of Construction, was the Project Manager for this project.        Terry Davidson also served on this project as superintendent.

Itinerant Studio

Itinerant Studio – Tennant Fit Out – Winchester Building

C&N Contractors treats their work as artisans. But our “art” is different than what most people think of as art.  So, when we had the opportunity to work with and for artists, we were appreciative of their work.  As it turns out, they were also appreciative of our work.

Vicki Rulli and Tom Heaphy started Itinerant Studio in 2004 and it has been on a rising trajectory ever since. The Studio is a production art studio creating original and limited edition mixed media works using a variety of techniques and materials that serves the design and wholesale trade.  Itinerant Studio is a production art studio creating original and limited edition mixed media works using a variety of techniques and materials that serves the design and wholesale trade.

When they purchased the 100 year old Winchester Building at 149 West Jefferson Street, they turned to C&N Contractors to help them fit out the building to their needs. C&N constructed two rooms – a Shop Room and a Flatbed Printer Room – with metal studs, insulation, and gypsum board.  Included in the work were two overhead steel doors, cleaning and servicing the unit heaters, install new 200 amp electrical service, and lighting installation.  The Flatbed Printer Room is critical to the operation of Itinerant Studio and the cleanliness and environment of the room must have the utmost integrity.

Taylor Van Vliet was the Project Manager, and Terry Davidson was the Superintendent for this job.

FC Industries

FC Industries – Rebar Testing Laboratory

How do you connect C&N Contractors to the nuclear energy of the world? It does not take six degrees of separation steps to accomplish this.

When FC Industries decided to create a new Rebar Testing Laboratory, Steve Vaughn turned to C&N Contractors to help them deliver this design/build project. The FC Industries Lab tests the tensile strength of rebar (up to 2 ½ inches in diameter) used in the construction of nuclear energy plants throughout the world.  Viola! There lies C&N’s connection to nuclear energy of the world.

The lab features a 16 foot tall by 8 foot wide coiling overhead door and a 20 foot high ceiling and 21 foot high over the rebar testing equipment. C&N poured two isolated 5,000 pounds per square inch reinforced concrete foundations within the laboratory to accommodate the needs of the specific testing equipment specifications. The larger of the two foundations is 8’6” by 8’6” by 4’4” deep.  C&N Contractors reduced the cost to the customer by self-performing the reinforced concrete foundations, structural steel erection, wall, doors, window, and ceiling construction.

FC Industries is a family of manufacturing companies that has been family owned since 1972. Now in its second generation of family ownership and management, FC has become a metal manufacturing powerhouse! The members of this family of companies are AFC Tool Company, Dayton Precision Aerospace, AFC Stamping and Production, and BarSplice.

Taylor Van Vliet was the Project Manager and Terry Davidson the Project Superintendent.

Springfield Museum of Art – Project Scope

The Springfield Museum of Art Infusion & Interface Campus Project was a Construction Project that blended a modernization of the museum’s conference rooms along with renovations to the auditorium and ADA upgrades to the existing museum campus. Some unique specialties were also included in this project such as a new loft to the museum, a new art gallery display system and a dance stage. Other upgrades included landscaping to the campus, HVAC and electrical updates.

In total over 30 rooms were included in this project for flooring, lighting and acoustical ceilings as well as the entrance floor corridors. This project covered in excess of 13,000 square foot of space for the Springfield Museum and the School of Arts.

Fire wall installation was completed to conform to local building code along with sound insulation on some select rooms that were upgraded for the musical usage. In order to display students work projects, some 200 foot of aluminum track was installed along with hanger cables and support hooks for the art work.

The work for this project was completed during normal museum operations. There was no interruption to the museums programs and exhibitions during the course of renovation. This was extremely critical to the Springfield Museum of Art. The Springfield Museum of Art houses a permanent collection of exquisite American Art collection, which is open to the public for their enjoyment.

Bushnell Building Code Blue


One of Springfield’s more beautiful downtown structures, the Historic Bushnell Building was built in 1893 and is registered on the Historic Registry of Buildings. This five story building has over 100,000 square feet and was home to the patent attorney of the Wright Brothers.

A complete restoration of its interior, exterior, and adjacent parking garage was completed as part of the Ohio Job Ready Site Grant project. C & N Contractors, Inc. was involved with preliminary planning and design which included design and construction to LEED standards. Many of the building components were bio-based products including insulation, floor finishes, and casework.


Other unique sustainable design elements include rain water collection for non-potable water use, heat generated by computer room equipment used to provide supplemental building heat, and surpassing initial expectations for reuse of existing building materials.

Existing architectural features discovered during demolition, were reused such as marble floors, tile designs, brick and stone walls, arches, and interior windows.

Over 330 wood windows replaced with hand crafted windows approved by the Ohio Historic Preservation Office and National Park Service.

All exterior masonry restored with decorative terra cotta being removed, mapped, restored, and reinstalled. Documentation is being finalized for submitting this project as a LEED Platinum.

70% of the total construction cost went to local subcontractors and suppliers.
