SALISBURY, MD – July 19, 2016 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, announced the ground breaking for a new multi-purpose recreational building for Spence Baptist Church in Snow Hill, Maryland. The 7,600 square foot building will be built by the Gillis Gilkerson team on church property at 4824 Paw Paw Creek Road, Snow Hill, MD

“The partnership we established with Spence Baptist Church allows us to help the congregation foster future growth with the youth of the congregation,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “We look forward to completion of the building and the opportunities it provides for the church community.”

The one-story fellowship facility will include a multipurpose banquet hall, a youth game room, kitchen, storage and amenities.  The facility will be a pre-engineered steel frame building system with a concrete foundation and reinforced monolithic floor slab. The project will include a new parking lot, landscaping and storm water management system.

“The Gillis Gilkerson team has been instrumental in helping our congregation reach this milestone,” said Bob Shockley, Spence Baptist Church building committee member. “Our vision is finally becoming a reality.

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

“I was able to get a hold of my friend, who works for Gillis Gilkerson while I was in Africa when I found out my house flooded. When I got home in June, Gillis Gilkerson told me what went wrong and what needed to be fixed. They did a complete interior remodel by November so I was back in my home for the holidays. I never had to worry. I knew they would do a quality job and they did.”
