Taylor Bank

taylor bank onley virginia location building and parking lot

In July 2020, Gillis Gilkerson completed the construction of Taylor Bank’s new facility in Onley, Virginia. The full-service bank branch is now open for business on the corner of Main Street and Shore Parkway, a prime location within the Accomack County community.

“We value the relationship we have with Taylor Bank,” said Gillis Gilkerson’s Vice President, Tyler Barnes. “We’ve completed a number of renovations for them in the past and were excited to have the opportunity to build their newest branch on the Eastern Shore from the ground, up.”

The +/- 3,694 square foot single-story, wooden framed building houses the bank’s Onley Loan Production Office and features teller pods and three drive-up lanes, including one that allows for ATM access. In light of COVID, walk-in customers of the branch will be met by a greeter to help regulate traffic inside the building and direct them towards the appropriate entrance and exit points.

“This was another great collaboration between Gillis Gilkerson and Taylor Bank, and our first new construction project together,” said Ray Thompson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Taylor Bank. “It has been a fantastic experience and we are excited about the organic growth opportunity to serve the entire Eastern Shore of Virginia, all the way down to the Bay Bridge Tunnel. The trust that we have in Gillis Gilkerson allowed us to use an architect from out of the area whose access to the jobsite was limited even more so by the hit of COVID. By the end of the project, the Ohio-based firm echoed our trust in the Gillis Gilkerson team.”

Barnes led the project’s management alongside Superintendent Steve Eshleman. The team completed the build, parking lot and landscaping installation within the requested budget and timeframe.

“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.”

It has been 16-months since a fire totaled our clubhouse and we are now getting ready to open the doors to our new building and begin a new era at the Wicomico Yacht Club. The Gillis Gilkerson team was professional, constantly communicating with us and sticking to their very accurate timeline. We thank them for a job well done

“Without the professionalism and know-how of the Gillis Gilkerson team, all of our fundraising efforts would not have given us the final result of a beautiful symbol of our maritime heritage on the shores of the Choptank. The project’s unique design required an expertise and adaptation to construction in a maritime environment that Gillis Gilkerson was able to deliver.”
