Over the years, Gillis Gilkerson has completed a number of construction projects for The Salisbury School (TSS), a local education institution. The Wicomico County-based private school occupies a large campus on Hobbs Road, just off of Route 50 in Salisbury, Maryland, and offers pre-kindergarten through twelfth-grade schooling.

In addition to constructing the infamous and notable TSS dome, Gillis Gilkerson also managed the build of a two-story dormitory that now houses the school’s foreign exchange students. The dormitory offers six bedrooms and is semi-attached to the property’s original farmhouse also used as living quarters.

The $440,000 project was designed by architect David Quillen and compliments the school’s philosophy of leading by example in terms of renewable energy. The +/- 3,182 square foot building features a Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) system as well as other sustainable energy conservation measures.

“The Gillis Gilkerson team was very experienced, knowledgeable, and able to accomplish many difficult tasks, making sound decisions when changes needed to be made,” said Nick Kypreos, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for TSS. “Management was always on-hand to assist and support their on-site staff and the project was completed just in time for students to arrive and move-in as planned. I would highly recommend Gillis Gilkerson to anyone needing construction services.”
