Brian Zilch has, over the past 25 years, become integrally woven into the construction fabric of Greater Cincinnati. His name and reputation have become synonymous with quality buildings. His “big picture” understanding of building systems, their components and the quality of design, as well as his ability in value engineering, make him a valuable resource during the building process. His goal is to consistently deliver the best value to the client, insuring a smooth transition from the design phase through the construction phase and on to completion.
Brian attended the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering, earning a Bachelors of Science in Engineering with emphasis on civil and mechanical engineering. After school, Brian accepted a position for Beck Arabia in Saudi Arabia where he spent two years. Moving stateside, he formed a construction company in Dallas, Texas. Since then he has worked for the area’s largest developers in leadership positions. It was during his tenure at a local developer that he met Mark Davis. Brian and Mark have managed together more than 200 design build projects totaling more than $400 million.
Since 1993, Mark and Brian have focused much of their efforts on the design and construction of hotel, office, industrial and church projects.
Brian manages all construction and land development for HiFive and is intimately involved with every project. Brian, his wife Barbi, and their three children, Jonathan, Andrew, and Abby live in the Indian Hill area.
