What Our Clients Say
“Without the professionalism and know-how of the Gillis Gilkerson team, all of our fundraising efforts would not have given us the final result of a beautiful symbol of our maritime heritage on the shores of the Choptank. The project’s unique design required an expertise and adaptation to construction in a maritime environment that Gillis Gilkerson was able to deliver.”
~ Jackalyn A. Noeller,

“I have not seen anyone as professional and great to deal with than your company and the people work for it, from you [Palmer] to the that person who’s a laborer. I’ll share that from my heart with our community.
~ Tony Taphipour
Owner of Pure Fitness

COVID presented manpower and procedural issues but their onsite staff was attentive and pushed through to deliver the final project
