Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott

Rehoboth Beach, DE

fairfiled inn & suites hotel and parking

Gillis Gilkerson (GGI) completed the construction of the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The four story, 60,300 square foot hotel was completed on time and within the allotted budget despite many weather-related hurdles presented by a winter build. The finished hotel boasts 94 guest rooms, conference and meeting areas, an indoor pool, fitness room, basement bar, and lobby designed to accommodate hot breakfast service for guests.

The hotel is owned by Hudson Management Group, a regional hospitality ownership, and management entity. The opening of this particular Fairfield Inn & Suites not only marked their entrance into the hospitality sector but also the Marriott brand’s entrance into the Southern Delaware region.

As part of the build, GGI delivered an exterior cladded with a combination of cementitious siding and an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) which offers continuous insulation designed to meet evolving building and energy codes. Project Manager Mike Truitt led Gillis Gilkerson’s onsite construction team and managed the build from initiation through successful completion.

Testimonial:
“This was definitely not an off-the-shelf type hotel. It was a custom design to maximize
our guests’ experiences. There is nothing like this anywhere in our market area. Gillis Gilkerson did a great job, and the quality and craftsmanship is second to none.”

“The Salisbury Zoo is pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Gillis Gilkerson on its Animal Health Clinic project. Successful completion of the Clinic project was an essential component of the continued growth and professional accreditation of the Zoo. Additionally the project represented an active partnership between the Zoo, the City of Salisbury, the State of Maryland, and the Delmarva Zoological Society and the regional philanthropic community. All these factors made it imperative that the project be completed in a timely and budgetarily consistent fashion.”

“Gillis Gilkerson seamlessly made the transition from outside contractor to partner in the Animal Health Clinic project. They were proactive about reviewing the plan documents and specifications early in the construction process to make sure there were no problems as the work started. The team made every effort to stay ahead of the curve and even worked on marginal weather days in order to keep the project moving and on schedule. Gillis Gilkerson was just as invested in the success of this project as the Zoo, the City, and the rest of the project team.”

“The Salisbury Zoo would be happy to once again partner with Gillis Gilkerson on future endeavors.”
