Momentum Building in Monroe: CCC breaks ground Nov. 12 for $6M office/retail

LCNB anchoring CCC project in Monroe: American Way and Clarence F. Warner Drive intersection

Shoppers from Greater Cincinnati and Dayton have fully embraced the Cincinnati Premium Outlets at the busy interchange of Interstate 75 and Ohio Route 63 along the Butler/Warren county line.

Early next year, office users and retail-oriented tenants will be able to enjoy a fresh locale at the newest business park in the busy corridor, less than one mile from the Cincinnati Premium Outlets: the $6 million project is now under construction by Cincinnati Commercial Contracting (CCC).

The newest LCNB National Bank branch, the company's 26th, in Monroe.

Up first for Cincinnati Commercial Contracting: some infrastructure and site development.

No worries for CCC. They’ve been scouting sitesdeveloping sitesconstructing buildings and managing property for the last three decades.

The developer and owner ( will be building a new road, Clarence F. Warner Drive, off American Way.

American Way is accessible directly off of Ohio Route 63, near the Rte. 63 interchange with Interstate 75, an interchange traveled by an estimated 120,000 cars per day.

“The City of Monroe, and that whole Butler/Warren county region along I-75, has become one of the fastest-growing and most popular business corridors in our region,” said John Westheimer, President and owner of CCC.

CCC: Owner, developer and builder of new, $6M office/retail project in Monroe.

“This project will fill a void for new, quality-built office and retail space. We look forward to a long-term, outstanding partnership with the elected officials and planning people from Monroe who have helped make this project a reality, in the midst of some very trying economic times.”

The new park will have a total of 30,000 square feet in a building configuration that’s still taking shape; CCC is currently negotiating with two restaurants and several retail tenants.

A Nov. 12 groundbreaking will be attended by Monroe officials such as Mayor Robert Routson, as well as Tim Lamphier, grandson of Clarence F. Warner, one of the Founding Fathers of Monroe and the namesake of a new road traversing the property.

LCNB National Bank will occupy the first building in the new development.

Founded in 1877 in Lebanon, Ohio, by leading citizens of the Warren County seat, LCNB has grown to 25 banking offices throughout the Cincinnati/Dayton corridor. LCNB National Bank is a full-service, FDIC Insured National Bank; its newest facility will measure about 3,000 square feet.

“All of us at LCNB National Bank are excited to be building our newest office in the City of Monroe. This location will become our 26th office serving the residents and businesses in the Dayton-Cincinnati corridor,” said Steve Foster, President of LCNB.

“It is a pleasure working with the officials from the City of Monroe and Cincinnati Commercial Contracting on this project.”

The $6M Monroe project is expected to create 200 jobs.

A demographic report pegs population growth within three miles of the site at 67 percent over the last decade, from 10,129 during the 2000 Census to 16,909 last year.

Monroe is strategically located between the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton markets.

The Butler/Warren County line splits the eastern third of Monroe, a 16 square-mile town with almost 4,000 acres available for commercial and residential development.

The population has a healthy pocketbook: more than 50 percent of the residents living within a three-mile radius of the CCC site have a household income of between $50,000 and $99,999; within a five-mile radius, almost 40 percent earn within the same range.

The leadership at Cincinnati Commercial Contracting and other businesses in the community at the I-75/Route 63 corridor has also been drawn by the sheer volume of traffic:

–  I-75 carries more than 96,000 vehicles per day past the interchange, according to 2006 statistics from the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI), the most current data available;

–  Along Route 63, traffic counts recorded in August by OKI determined almost 24,000 cars passed the CCC site daily.

Due to its location and transportation system, and now with the new Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) on I-75, Monroe is one of the best-located and most accessible municipalities in the region.

30+ years with Cincinnati Commercial Contracting: Beyond Bricks and Mortar for local full-service contractor, builder, developer and real estate company

Posted in Cincinnati Commercial Contracting on 10/25/2010 by @CincinnatiPR


Mike Tramonte the Elder with his son, Matt Tramonte, at CCC groundbreaking for Tramonte & Sons Distributors, Mason.


Matt and Mike Tramonte know all about Merlot, Chardonnay and Chablis.

Bricks and mortar, build-to-suits, site searches and cap rates, not so much.

Real estate and commercial construction are not my business, mine is selling wine. It can be a very intimidating process,” said Matt Tramonte, owner/operator of the family-owned Tramonte & Sons Distributors with his father, Mike.

“We called Cincinnati Commercial Contracting because they owned the land where we wanted to go, and John Westheimer and his people made it a very comfortable environment.

“No question was too small, no detail too minute,” Tramonte said.



John (Westheimer, owner and Prez at CCC) told us he wanted it to be an enjoyable experience for us, and that if we put the time and effort into it, it would be one of our greatest achievements. And it has.”

Family-owned businesses are a traditional sweet spot for CCC. Both honor the values of honesty, integrity, hard work, friendship and loyalty.

“Working with CCC was just such a positive experience. There was so much they did that went beyond the call of what we expected,” said Robbin Krauser, co-owner of family-owned Restaurant Parts & More of Springboro.

“They built a duck pond in the back during construction so we could fish. They took us to meet with the building people at Springboro at our request which was a real eye-opener,” Krauser said.


Restaurant Parts & More, Springboro - built by Cincinnati Commercial Contracting.


John has become a personal friend. We’re a young company, so he helped us out with our growth, clients, some business-related things that had nothing to do with construction,” Krauser added.

“John and CCC are family.”

Derrick Co. first approached CCC 10 years ago for an expansion, but did not proceed.

Undeterred, CCC picked up when the metal blaster was ready.

“When we first met, all John and I talked about was our farms. Still do,” said Gary Schmid, owner of Derrick Co. in Cincinnati.

“John and his team wanted to help us get the facility going and get some business in here.

“It wasn’t just about CCC getting paid. It was all about friends, and families, helping each other.”

CCC is a client-focused, full service construction management and real estate company founded by Westheimer in 1979.

Operating in the Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana Tri-State area, CCC delivers products and services that are designed to exceed our customers’ expectations.

Cincinnati Commercial Contracting ( not only builds for others; it also build for itself.

Throughout Southwestern Ohio and Northern Kentucky CCC has commercial real estate available for lease or sale in Cincinnati, Monroe, Sharonville, Middletown, Amelia and other locations.

The company offers office space, retail space, industrial/flex space, commercial condominiums, and land for development.

At Hickory Dickory Tots (below), CCC engaged owner Karen Werling with “the exact package I was looking for: an honest, detail-oriented contractor that I was not going to have to babysit. I own and run by own day care business. I can’t babysit every little blueprint.”

Rejuvenate, Renovate, Restore, then Rest in Peace: Re-Roof Solutions from Cincinnati Commercial Contracting provides options for building owners

Posted in Cincinnati Commercial Contracting on 10/19/2010 by @CincinnatiPR


Nick Eveland with Re-Roof Solutions by Cincinnati Commercial Contracting, with client Joe Rohs at OKI Bering


Joe Rohs knew the project was tough, the expectations immense, and the timeline difficult.

Heading into the winter months of last year, the Chief Financial Officer at OKI Bering, one of the world’s largest independent distributors of welding, safety and industrial products, had enough with all the troublesome puddles he was seeing in the warehouse.

Rohs’ biggest concern: the roof atop the sprawling, 200,000-square-foot building along Princeton-Glendale Road.

“At the time we bought the building, we did get it for a good price, because we knew it needed a new roof. It was leaking all over the place,” said Rohs.

“We knew we had taken a calculated gamble, and it had worked out somewhat for three years. We were figuring we could Band-Aid it for at least a few more years, and save some money in the process, by delaying what turned out to be the inevitable.”

The options for OKI Bering were not infinite. The company could:

buy a new roof;

relocate to another facility; or

continue to apply temporary fixes to what was increasingly shaping up to be a long-term issue.


That’s when Rohs was introduced to John Westheimer and Nick Eveland, leaders in Re-Roof Solutions at Cincinnati Commercial Contracting (CCC).




Soon thereafter, OKI Bering made a decision to work with CCC and install the best and most economical long-term term solution for a new roof: the metal-on-metal standard by Butler Manufacturing.

“Like most of the companies we talk to, if not all, price is a principal concern. Aesthetics are important, but the most pressing issue that OKI was looking at was they couldn’t just shut down because their roof was leaking,” said Westheimer, President and owner of CCC. Eveland is his Re-Roof Specialist.

“Life has to go on. We were able to complete a Butler metal-on-metal roof in about six weeks, right before winter, and they didn’t miss a single day to downtime,” Westheimer said.


The benefits of the Re-Roof Solution offered by CCC are numerous:

Enhanced energy efficiency through roof life cycle, with some lasting over 40 years;

– Companies receive a 25-year labor and materials warranty;

No interruption in existing business work flow and operations;

– Virtually no maintenance required;

Experienced, factory-trained installers are re-certified annually;

Non-perforated design means the current roof does not have to be torn off.

Clients who choose the Re-Roof Solution at CCC have selected a company with three decades of local experience in development, construction and general contracting.

Clients also benefit from the expertise and experience of the 109-year-old manufacturer, Butler Manufacturing of St. Louis.

Founded in 1901, Butler operates manufacturing, engineering and service centers across the U.S. and internationally, selling products through a network of independent dealers (Butler Builders).

Butler began installing metal roofs in 1969. Currently, there is an estimated two billion square feet of metal roof solutions in place.

“There are many reasons to install the Re-Roof, but perhaps the most important element is the flexibility factor,” Westheimer said.


John and Amy Westheimer, Cincinnati Commercial Contracting.


“We have clients who are considering an array of options when they realize their existing facility may have an issue with its roof, or a facility that they are considering buying has a problem with its roof.

“Nobody is going to sign a long-term lease at a place where they know the roof leaks,” Westheimer added.

Here’s the deal: whether your are building a completely new roof, or you have chosen to take the re-roofing route, the Re-Roof Solution is flexible enough to fit your building’s needs,” added Eveland.

Same goes for a replacement roof. All of the advantages are in favor of the Re-Roof: design flexibility, consistent quality, speed of construction and predictability of costs and completion schedules.”

“The OKI Bering building is over 30 years-old, and had caused us ongoing headaches because of our tenants’ concerns with leaking. Re-Roof Solutions by CCC installed a roof that was leak-free, and did so in a way that was courteous and professional, accommodating all ongoing business operations,” said building manager Len Murray, President of Murray Realtor Associates Inc.

CCC’s performance exceeded all expectations,” said Rohs, with OKI Bering.

“What’s more, our employees were pleasantly surprised to find a much more comfortable work environment. We attribute that to the additional insulation that was installed, and the first-rate worksmanship that was part of the new roof assembly.”
