Perdue Farms Corporate Headquarters

Salisbury, MD

Lobby at Perdue with desk and tables and chairs

Gillis Gilkerson completed a 95,000 square foot renovation to Perdue Farms’ Corporate office building in Salisbury, Maryland in May 2013. The project included six phases and was delivered two months early. Throughout the construction process, all divisions remained fully functional and occupied. Initially, Gillis Gilkerson set a goal of obtaining the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-level certification. By completion, this goal was surpassed; the project obtained LEED’s highest level of certification, Platinum. Throughout the build, Gillis Gilkerson also worked alongside mechanical and electrical engineers from AWB Engineers to create and design a highly efficient VRF HVAC system.

What Our Clients Say

“I want to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff for the outstanding job you have done despite many obstacles you faced (regulating authorities, weather, architectural nuances) … You managed to complete the project in time, on budget and with superior quality and elegance … You should know that your contributions are highly valued and praised.”

“I was able to get a hold of my friend, who works for Gillis Gilkerson while I was in Africa when I found out my house flooded. When I got home in June, Gillis Gilkerson told me what went wrong and what needed to be fixed. They did a complete interior remodel by November so I was back in my home for the holidays. I never had to worry. I knew they would do a quality job and they did.”

~ Denny Dempsey,
Salisbury Resident

“The global expertise in all aspects of the building construction and access to various sub-contractors was a blessing given the number of technical details that needed to be attended to while we obtained certification from the state health care officials.”

Seaford Specialty Surgery Center

“Our interest was to find a company who could maintain the historic accuracy of the artifact installation, while being code compliant with confidence in the durability of the job done. Gillis Gilkerson met all three requirements and got the job done. We were very demanding from the beginning. We knew what we wanted and the Gillis team, led by Don Murray, was patient with us and delivered everything we wanted. It has been a very positive experience.”

~Jackie Noller,
Interim Vice President,
Choptank River Lighthouse Society

“For a design/build project it is unusual for the initial cost estimates and timing to be maintained and in this case the project was completed on time and the costs were held to the contract level. In going into a design/build project like this, one always wonders if the right decision was made on the contractor selected. Now that the project has been completed, I can say that I know we made the right decision with Gillis Gilkerson.”

~ Norman S. Grubb,
Assistant to the President,
