About HiFive

HiFive Hotel Construction

A Full-Service Hotel Design and Construction Firm

With in-house design-build capabilities, we have the skills, experience, and expertise to tailor solutions which meet our hotel customer’s needs, delivering unmatched value. HiFive’s services include:

The HiFive Difference

For HiFive, the only way to truly assess the requirements of any hotel construction project is to achieve a global understanding of the needs of the hotel developer. Any consultant can provide an objective service by analyzing space needs along with site and building parameters. What we further provide is a “subjective” service that, while recognizing existence of physical restraints, also reflects the culture of the ministry. This is another way HiFive can add value to your project – delivering a superior product that exceeds your expectations.

The HiFive Mission Statement

We offer the best design and construction solutions to our hotel clients at prices they can afford by providing:

  • one source for all services – architecture, construction, master planning, development, and financial assistance;
  • an experienced team of hotel design and construction professionals leading your project and ensuring its success;
  • a focus on partnering through every phase of the project, to gain a complete understanding of the challenges you may face;
  • respect, fairness, honesty, and good stewardship in the relationships we create and the trusts we earn;

Through our work, we achieve the enthusiastic support of our clients, act with caring in the community, and have fun in the work we do.

Hotel Architectural Design

We are dedicated to providing the most intelligent and appropriate design for our each hotel we build. And, with our in-house design-build capabilities, we deliver on that goal with unmatched service. HiFive’s principle design concentration has been on hotel design and construction, as well as a wide range of commercial architectural projects. CEO Mark Davis, RA, has been providing architectural and planning services for more than 25 years. Mark oversees every project commissioned to HiFive, and has been involved with the planning or design activities of more than 300 projects.

Blake Helms, a Senior Designer with the firm, has a passion for hotel design and is responsible for executing in-house drawings. In addition, Blake brings 3D computer modeling skills to projects, allowing HiFive customers to see renderings of their finished project before construction begins. Blake, his wife Sue, their son, Ryan, and daughter, Katie, live in West Chester, Ohio.

Mark Bischoff has spent six years working for a local hotel developer, creating a portfolio of over 25 hotels. Prior to that, Mark spent six years designing hotels for a local design firm and six years building and renovating hotels for a local hotel management company. Mark has experience with major hotel brands and has directed the interior design efforts on many hotels over the last 20 years.

Hotel Construction Development & Management

HiFive construction activities are under the stewardship of Brian Zilch. Educated as an engineer, Brian has successfully managed $.5 billion worth of construction. He has worked closely with Mark for the past 15 years, and during that time he has participated in all land planning and estimating services for every project. Brian’s understanding of building systems has been a key contributor to the success of his projects. His focus on land use and master-planning, and his stewardship in both design and construction, lead to highly accurate estimates and cost projections. Brian’s leadership and expertise is a major reason why HiFive Development’s reputation is unsurpassed, not only as a hotel contractor, but also in a variety of commercial/industrial construction projects.
