Gillis Gilkerson Hired to Renovate Bay Terrace Garden Apartments in Berlin, Maryland

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. 

During the gut rehab, Gillis Gilkerson will strip each unit down to the bare walls.  The three buildings (32 units total) will be renovated to include new siding, roofs, stairs, flooring, HVAC, windows, drywall, plumbing and paint.  New appliances and cabinets will also be installed. The community building will be renovated to include a manager’s office, kitchenette and communal space equipped with computers for resident’s use.     

The project will also extend the ends of each building by ten feet which will make the units larger and provide more secure entry points and stairwells.  Bay Terrace Garden Apartments are being renovated in accordance with Enterprise Green Communities Certification Standards.           

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Severn Development Company again,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson.  “Especially on a project that will enhance the quality of life for its residents.  After our team is done with the gut rehab, community members won’t even recognize their homes as they will look brand new.”   

“We enjoy working with Gillis Gilkerson,” said Tim Barila, Severn Development Company.  “We have worked with them previously and know they have a reputation for delivering quality work in a timely manner and on budget.  We look forward to this next venture.”

Gillis Gilkerson Project Manager, Jason Rudd and Superintendent, Charlie Morris are scheduled to complete the renovation within the year.

“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!”

“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.”
