Mark Five Construction was founded in 1984, as a licensed, bonded, and insured construction company, working in Maryland and Washington DC. In August of 1987, Mark Five Construction was incorporated in the State of Maryland. Also in 1987, Mark Five Construction Incorporated successfully passed all requirements of the Maryland Home Improvement Commission, becoming licensed to complete home improvements throughout the State of Maryland. In 1991 Mark Five Construction Incorporated successfully passed all the requirements to become a licensed Class “A” Contractor in the Common Wealth of Virginia. In 2000, The State of Maryland required all contactors engaged in the building of homes, under the Maryland Home Builder Registration Act, to be licensed by January 1, 2001. Mark Five Construction Incorporated is compliant with this act and is fully licensed to build homes throughout the State of Maryland.
During Mark 5’s initial 6 years of business, our construction projects consisted primarily of home improvements with a sprinkling of light commercial, institutional, and multi-residential projects. Mark 5 completed over 3,800 projects during this time period. Over the next 3 years Mark 5’s construction projects were primarily government and commercial with a sprinkling of home improvements.
During this time frame, while working on a GSA Government project, Mark 5 crossed paths with a GSA employee who had been devastating by a tragic fire to their home. Mark 5 was able to combine our construction talents and experience, along with our time proven team members, to rebuild this family’s home. This project was so much more than just another construction project – Mark Five Construction Incorporated had the opportunity to help a family to rebuild not only their home buttheir lives.This single experience would drive and mature Mark 5 Construction into one of the top disaster/restoration companies on the East Coast. Over the next 17 years Mark 5 Construction would complete more than 6,800 insurance/disaster projects. Mark 5 Construction’s mission was simple: A partnership in rebuilding homes, businesses, institutions, but most importantly lives.
Over that 17 year period, Mark 5 Construction has built and rebuilt more homes than most companies in the restoration and home building business would complete in a life time. Our experience and attention to quality, methods and materials, diversity of architecture/engineering, time frames, workability with the jurisdictions in permitting and inspections, and most importantly; listening to the needs of our clients, have made Mark 5 Construction a very successful company since 1984.
As Mark 5 Construction moves forward into the future, our goals are the same but unfortunately the canvas is ever changing. In order for Mark 5 Construction to continue our mission statement and stay true to who we are. Mark 5 Construction is now: “A partnership in building homes, businesses, institutions, and most importantly helping to build lives.” The main emphasis is on “a partnership” and “helping to build lives” - as it relates to building new homes and customizing these homes to meet the needs and lifestyles of our clients. Mark 5 will partner with you in the construction and building of your first home. Equally and just as important, Mark 5 will partner with your in the construction and building of your luxury estate. For all your home building needs, Mark Five Construction will be there, partnering with you to make your dream of building your dream home a reality.
It is my sincere hope and prayer this short history provides an understanding to you of who Mark 5 Construction is, what Mark 5 Construction is about, and where we are going - together.
