“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.”

~ Jackalyn A. Noeller,
Choptank River Lighthouse, Cambridge, MD

“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.

“Much thanks to Gillis Gilkerson for giving our building such a beautiful facelift.  They truly succeeded in bringing our vision to life”
