“We value the quality educational surroundings our local schools strive to provide for our youth,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson.  “Our team stuck to a tight schedule to cut down on interferences during the school year because we knew the Sussex Academy students and staff were anxious to get back to a productive learning environment.”

“We were very happy with the renovations Gillis Gilkerson made to the school,” said Patricia Oliphant, Ed.D., director of curriculum and instruction, Sussex Academy.  “Mike and Daryl were great to work with.  They were very responsive to our questions and made sure everything was done on time.  Our students are enjoying the new theater and library and the staff is excited that we have a space where we can seat the entire student population.”

“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.”

~ Norman S. Grubb,
Assistant to the President,
USAir Express
