Gillis Gilkerson Completes Federalsburg Square Renovations at Federalsburg and Denton

SALISBURY, MD – February 16, 2017 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, announced the completion of renovations to Federalsburg Square Apartments at 101 Routzahn Lane in Federalsburg, Maryland and 209 South 8th Street in Denton, Maryland.

“It is always a pleasure to work with a returning customer” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson.  “Just like Victoria Estates in Pocomoke and Jefferson Apartments in Lewes, Delaware, Federalsburg Square offers small family community rental housing.  We are glad to be a part of a project that is elevating the livability of the units for Caroline county residents.” 

The Federalsburg apartment complex covers 44,712 square feet and the Denton complex covers 25,457 and a 953 square foot community building.  The Gillis Gilkerson team made renovations to eleven apartment units (4 in Denton / 7 in Federalsburg) and to the newly constructed community building in Denton.  The units were partially demolished and renovated with new drywall and paint touch up, all new floor coverings, new appliances, bathroom fixtures, kitchen cabinets, new outside decks and renovated laundry rooms.

“Gillis Gilkerson did an excellent job from start to finish,” said Jib Edwards, general partner, Federalsburg Square Apartments.  “All of the residents are very happy with the renovations and Severn Development Company is excited to deliver affordable home solutions that will sustain another 30-plus years to community members.”  

Gillis Gilkerson project manager Robin Steininger in addition to superintendents Dale Reinhold, Darryl Mitchell and Steve Eshleman completed the project on time and on budget.

What Our Clients Say

“We are very excited to be open.  This was definitely not an “off the shelf” type hotel, it was a custom design to maximize our guest’s experiences. There is nothing like this anywhere in our market area. Gillis Gilkerson did a great job, and the quality and craftsmanship is second to none.”

~ Christian Hudson,
Hudson Management Group

“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing. The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”

~ Bruce Glisson,
Executive Pastor,
Allen Memorial Baptist Church

“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.”

~ Denny Dempsey,
Salisbury Resident

“We want to express our appreciation for the completion of the apartments at Jefferson II in time to get the residents back in their homes. We believe this was made possible by the quality site supervision provided by Dale Reinhold. Dale’s masterful control of the site, the suppliers and the subcontractors was like a conductor directing an unruly orchestra. On site progress was consistent and organized. When problems were encountered, Dale professionally provided solutions. Dale’s quality site supervision made the Jefferson II project a success.”

~ Arthur W. Edwards, Jr.
The Severn Companies

“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.”
