Gillis Gilkerson Finishing The Nest at Sussex Academy in Georgetown, Delaware


SALISBURY, MD – August 2, 2017 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted construction management and general contracting firms on Delmarva, announced it is in the final phase of work on The Nest at Sussex Academy, a new 3,861 square foot building with storage space for athletic equipment, Men’s & Women’s multi stall ADA compliant restrooms, open pavilion area and a concession stand, at 21150 Airport Road in Georgetown, Delaware.

“We were fortunate to work with Sussex Academy again to enhance the educational experience the campus offers to its staff and students,” said Dwight Miller, Gillis Gilkerson, president.  “We previously renovated the school’s lobby, stage, library and natatorium.  We value the opportunity to grow our relationship with them as we help the school expand its offerings to meet the community’s needs.” 

“As the owner’s representatives, Becker & Frondorf has had the pleasure of collaborating with Gillis Gilkerson on two, key, successive and successful projects for the same client,” said Carlo Arjona, project manager.  “Their professionalism, pragmatism and proficiency in getting things done were invaluable assets.  While the very nature of construction projects can often put the interests of the owner and the general contractor at odds, our experiences with Gillis Gilkerson and its staff, at all levels, were testaments that these, respective interests can still be fully-met collaboratively, collegially and civilly for collective project success.”

What Our Clients Say

“Throughout the construction phase of this project it was necessary to page a representative from Gillis Gilkerson on a daily basis. I would estimate the average response time for a response was about three minutes. The team was always eager to address any questions or concerns that I had, and when any small problem did arise, they were always fixed quickly and efficiently. In short, there was little disruption of my busy practice and loss of income due to time spent working with the contractor.”

~ John Burkett,
Burkett and Burkett, D.D.S., P.A.

“Gillis Gilkerson was far and away the most accommodating and skillful contractor I have ever dealt with in the building profession. They finished the job on time and under budget with absolute minimum disruption to our services.”

“Your generosity of time, energy, employees and community service has enabled our patient to have safe, reliable access in and out of her home to continue dialysis three times a week. The ramp also provides an exit for the patient in the event of an emergency.”

~ Thelma Price,
Social Worker,
Deer’s Head Center Kidney Dialysis Unit

“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

“We chose Gillis Gilkerson based on dependability, service, quality and costs. Dwight Miller was responsible for pricing and the quality of materials we could get for the best price. His knowledge allowed us to meet our timetables and deadlines and gave us one of the nicest office structures in Salisbury.”

~ Edward J. Williams,
Peninsula Cardiology Associates, P.A.
