SALISBURY, MD – February 24, 2016 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, announced it has been hired to renovate Bay Terrace Garden Apartments, an affordable housing community located at 517 Bay Street in Berlin, Maryland. The project is a joint venture between Severn Development Company, based in Annapolis and Berlin Community Housing Corporation, a local nonprofit based in Berlin, Maryland.
