YMCA of the Chesapeake hired Gillis Gilkerson as construction manager for their three phase, 44,000 square foot renovation project at the Richard A. Henson Family YMCA in Salisbury, Maryland.

Phase I saw major layout changes to the health and wellness center, including the installation of new sports flooring, state-of-the-art internet wired fitness equipment, new restrooms, a basketball center and group cycling and exercise areas. Phase II added a new childcare and youth exercise area in addition to lobby, check-in area and locker room renovations. The final phase added a 13,500 square foot building and 70,000 square foot parking lot.

Gillis Gilkerson also oversaw the installation of a new natatorium which now houses a 3,900 square foot family pool area and 5’ deep swimming pool. The 1,700 square foot entryway to the new building offers a vestibule, lobby and gallery with additional seating and congregation space. During all construction phases, the YMCA was able to remain fully operational for members and the public.

“We chose Gillis Gilkerson based on dependability, service, quality and costs. Dwight Miller was responsible for pricing and the quality of materials we could get for the best price. His knowledge allowed us to meet our timetables and deadlines and gave us one of the nicest office structures in Salisbury.”

~ Edward J. Williams,
Peninsula Cardiology Associates, P.A.

“Gillis Gilkerson has been extremely accommodating to work with. As an out-of-town developer we face the challenge not knowing how things work in a different market. Dwight Miller has been forth coming with the information needed and is always accessible. We made some demands throughout the project thus far that he has continuously met to our standards. It is great to work with a general contractor that is always available and makes our job as developers easier.”

~ Jerry Passaro,
Jamestown Development Group.

The project is a major win for the community, and the market is really responding well. I was happy with the way Gillis Gilkerson handled the delivery of this project in a time of disruption. COVID presented manpower and procedural issues but their onsite staff was attentive and pushed through to deliver the final project
