Architecture, Design, Construction & Technical Services

We work with you to create and construct extraordinary properties across the Hilton portfolio of brands. Our team of experts and professionals will support you in every step of the design and construction process.


Our Approach

We support the design and delivery of truly exceptional properties that delight our guests, reward our partners, and reflect the unique cultures of their geographical locations. With design and construction professionals across 16 locations, we have the advantages of a global presence as well as the benefits of local resources, skills, and expertise. Our team provides the programs and resources to help ensure that properties conform to our uniformly high standards and are current with relevant product selections.


Project Services

During the entire development process, you get a Project Director as your principal point of contact, who is focused on ensuring a smooth and trouble-free delivery of the highest-quality property. Our Project Directors are committed to increasing efficiencies, improving communications, and assembling reliable information for our owners, industry partners, and Hilton.

Hilton and all properties within our global portfolio of brands have now earned ISO 9001:2008 certification (Quality) and ISO 14001:2004 certification (Environment). We are the only global hotel chain and one of the largest-ever volume certifications of commercial buildings across any industry.


Design Services

Global Design Services delivers exceptionally designed properties, which includes optimizing the spatial requirements and operational relationships in both front and back-of-house areas of the hotel. Our team helps ensure our Design & Construction Standards are in place so that your property can operate economically and efficiently. Their efforts help create memorable and unique design solutions that reflect our brand philosophy and exceed our guests’ expectations.

Whether building a new hotel, converting or renovating an existing one, our standards, prototypes, design guides and other supporting information enable hotel owners, operators, developers, designers and manufacturers to better understand each brand within the Hilton portfolio. We provide this information too so that our developers can successfully execute their plans while ensuring the detail and quality of our brands render the best guest experience possible.


Suppliers' Connection

Suppliers’ Connection is an important tool that will allow franchisees, their designers and contractors to view vendor information relating to designing, building and equipping a hotel. We believe, if utilized, this tool will connect all of the key decision makers and therefore enhance our market for new hotel development.
