Gillis Gilkerson Completes Renovations on New United Way Office Space


SALISBURY, MD – November 19, 2014 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, announced the completion of an interior renovation at 803 North Salisbury Boulevard, Suite 2100 in the E.S. Adkins Business Complex in Salisbury, Maryland.  The space was renovated to meet the needs of incoming tenant, United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore. 

United Way has been an occupant of the ES Adkins complex since 2004 and recently made the move to accommodate the organization’s growth.

“The United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore works diligently to support the local community,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson.  “Gillis Gilkerson wanted to give back and in-turn donated a portion of the completed work back to the organization and asked the same of other local businesses.  The response was remarkable – not a single business said “no.”

“With as little as forty-five days to complete the work, Gillis Gilkerson got the job done on time and with no hiccups,” said William Turner, E. S. Adkins and Company, president.  The work was clean, efficient and met the needs of the tenant.”

“Thanks to the commitment and determination from Gillis Gilkerson, the United Way staff and volunteers are working in the most beautiful office space in the county,” said Kathleen Momme, executive director, United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore.  “Through the leadership of Dwight Miller, donations came pouring in from community businesses.  We are so grateful to everyone who has helped make this a seamless transition during our busiest time of the year.  This move was truly a blessing for the United Way.” 

Through the leadership of The Adkins Company from Bill Turner, Gillis Gilkerson from Dwight Miller and the great work of our local United Way, in-kind donations of products and services from local companies towards the relocation and renovation of the United Way of The Lower Eastern Shore

totaled approximately $160,000.

“Throughout my 17 years engaging on these types of projects, I can honestly say that Mike (Truitt) was one of the best contractors that I have ever worked with. Throughout the process, Mike provided superior customer service and his communication far exceeded my expectations. Most importantly, he delivered the building on time and with the exact specifications that were discussed. In addition to customer service, Mike and his company provided high-level workmanship. It was clear that Mike took pride in every phase of the project and that pride showed in the final product. Every part of the build out was delivered flawless. Both the interior and exterior of the building are beautiful!”
