Taylor Bank

Berlin, MD


Originally built in 1906, the main office of Taylor Bank at 24 North Main Street in Berlin, Maryland underwent a 5,000 square foot renovation including HVAC upgrades and architectural improvements to the flooring, offices and lighting. Taylor Bank in Berlin has been through four expansions since 1906. While this project was not an expansion, the renovations added security to the building and allowed for better utilization of the working space.

“The renovation was well-planned and well-executed while the building remained occupied,” said Ray Thompson, chief executive officer and president, Taylor Bank. “We could not have conducted this renovation without the planning, expertise, and flexibility of Gillis Gilkerson. They have extensive experience in renovating historic buildings, understood the logistical challenges, and expertly guided us through the process. Their on-site staff and sub-contractors were always professional and courteous to our employees and customers. We could not be more satisfied with our experience with Gillis Gilkerson, but more importantly, the beautiful product that was delivered to us by this quality firm.”

Gillis Gilkerson vice president and project manager Tyler Barnes and superintendent Steve Eshleman worked diligently and did not have to close the building or alter banking hours for the client during the renovation.

What Our Clients Say

“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.”
