Blue Line Foundation Selects CCC

Cincinnati Commercial Construction will begin building the $16 million Blue Line Foundation facility located in South Fairmont in February 2024. The 24,000 SF space will offer space for education, collaboration and celebration.

CCC has been involved with Blue Line since its inception in 2017. Its mission is to pull together resources and training to improve Greater Cincinnati police forces. The two-story building will include training rooms, offices and mental health facilities for Blue Line’s operation and training programs. To enhance the community, the new HQ will be able to go from daytime office and support operations to an evening and weekend event space.

The first floor of the building will be tenant space. The second floor will be home to the Blue Line offices and offer community spaces, including a ballroom for catering and a rooftop space. An anchor tenant has not yet been announced.

CCC has launched a new division. Westheimer Real Estate (WRE) will focus on on land for development and the company’s commercial spaces for lease. Previously, all sales, development, space for lease and construction service fell under the Cincinnati Commercial Contracting umbrella. John Westheimer, CCC Founder and current President, will head up WRE.

Jason Manni and Justin Platt, both currently vice presidents with CCC, will own and oversee the commercial construction operations for CCC. While Westheimer will still have some involvement with CCC, his primary duties with shift to WRE.

This has been a multi year succession plan for all three CCC principals.

“It’s a positive, incremental change,” said Westheimer. “The time is right now. Jason and Justin have the chance to really grow and prosper, and do what they do really, really well.”

CCC is building the Westheimer Real Estate’s office in Monroe now, with an anticipated opening of that office in January 2024.

Cincinnati Commercial Contracting’s commitment to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction remains unwavering. With the establishment of the Westheimer Real Estate Division, the team is poised to elevate its performance to new heights, embracing new challenges and celebrating new successes.

CCC Building New Flight Academy

Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport will be home to a new aircraft mechanic school starting in 2024. The Cincinnati Commercial Contracting team is proud to be the commercial construction company selected for this project.

As reported on Fox19 News, Epic Flight Academy partnered with FEAM Aero to break ground Monday at CVG for a facility that can house as many as 300 students and staff, according to CVG.

“This area, the need is just unbelievable,” said Epic Flight Academy COO Josh Rawlins. “From when we first came up here, we were blown away with the airport and just the demand for mechanics. It was far greater than we could ever imagine”

CVG backed up Rawlins’ comment about the high demand for aircraft mechanic positions in the Tri-State, but the industry as a whole is experiencing a shortage, according to an Aviation Technician Education Council report.

The aircraft mechanic school groundbreaking we held Monday, April 17, 2023 and the school is expected to be completed by early 2024. See the full report here.
