“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.
