Ocean City, MD
Gillis Gilkerson was hired by Precious Paws Animal Hospital to construct a new, state of the art veterinary facility in West Ocean City, Maryland. Precious Paws brings top notch veterinary care to the lower shore region and is located at 11843 Ocean Gateway in Ocean City, Maryland.
“Precious Paws didn’t skip a beat throughout the entire process,” said Dwight Miller, President of Gillis Gilkerson. “Our construction process allowed for them to remain open and serving clients in their original location while we built the new facility right next door. We are thankful for the opportunity to help them seamlessly transition into their new home where they can continue to meet the community’s needs.”
The 4,800 square foot, one-story building has vinyl siding accented by exterior stonework. The new space is equipped with four exam rooms, a comfort room, two surgery suites, a lobby and two waiting rooms—one for cats and another for dogs. “Our new space is amazing,” said Brenda Maniatty, owner of Precious Paws Animal Hospital. “It’s more beautiful than it has ever been, and our patients love it too!”
Upon completion of the new Precious Paws, Gillis Gilkerson Project Manager Don Murray and Superintendent Tim Swift oversaw demolition of the original building. The site now serves as additional parking for the new facility.
“Our former location was over 50 years old and too small to house our growth… it was time for us to expand and update our office. We knew that Gillis Gilkerson had veterinary experience based on their work for Pets ER and were pleased with how they thoroughly thought the project through, consistently meeting the needs of our staff and the animals we care for. Gillis Gilkerson was great to work with—they handled everything throughout the process which allowed our focus to remain on our customers.” -Brenda Maniatty, Owner of Precious Paws Animal Hospital
