Gillis Gilkerson Hired for Salisbury University’s Holloway Hall Improvement Projects

SALISBURY, MD – September 10, 2018 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted Construction Management and General Contracting firms on Delmarva, today announced it has been hired as the general contractor to manage several improvement projects on Salisbury University’s Holloway Hall on Camden Avenue in Salisbury, Maryland. 

“We have a solid relationship with the University and always look forward to providing the necessary building and facility improvements to make the staff, faculty and student experience the best it can be,” said Tyler Barnes, vice president, Gillis Gilkerson.  “The window replacements we handled on the north-west side of the building will definitely be noticed by anyone traveling down Camden Avenue.”

Gillis Gilkerson was hired as the general contractor for four different improvement projects including thirty-eight window replacements, exterior painting, lead abatement and masonry repair on exterior walls.  Windows of various sizes, on the first, second and third floors were custom made to fit openings with heavy duty balancers to hold sashes open.      

This first phase was considered a beta project as the University is planning on replacing all of the windows around the perimeter of the building.  

“Gillis Gilkerson was a pleasure to work with,” said Max Verbits, architect, Salisbury University.  “They were on top of the schedule and gave updates regularly, which allowed for the project to keep progressing.  They did a good job of moving the troops along and ran a very well-coordinated job.”

What Our Clients Say

“Without the professionalism and know-how of the Gillis Gilkerson team, all of our fundraising efforts would not have given us the final result of a beautiful symbol of our maritime heritage on the shores of the Choptank. The project’s unique design required an expertise and adaptation to construction in a maritime environment that Gillis Gilkerson was able to deliver.”

“Gillis Gilkerson does good work. This is the second building they have done for me and again delivered a quality product on time and on budget.”

~ Don Hall,
Owner,

This was definitely not an off-the-shelf type hotel. It was a custom design to maximize our guests’ 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 building is 100 years old and has continued to deteriorate for the last 40 years. To be honest, I wasn’t very positive about trying to save the building in the beginning.I thought it was a waste of time and money. When Gillis Gilkerson started working with our engineers and demonstrated experience with this type of project, I was relieved to say the least. They had contractors lined up and everything went according to plan. I would be tickled to work on another project with Gillis Gilkerson.”

~ Bob Donnelly,
Snow Hill Public Works Director

“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.”
