Gillis Gilkerson Hired to Renovate Peninsula Imaging Office Space into an MRI Exam Room
SALISBURY, MD – February 17, 2020 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted Construction Management, General Contracting and Development firms on Delmarva, today announced the start of renovations to convert office space into an MRI exam room for Peninsula Imaging located at 1655 Woodbrooke Drive in Salisbury.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to help our client become the first to introduce this technology to the Eastern Shore to meet the community’s needs,” said Tyler Barnes, vice president, Gillis Gilkerson. “As a return client, we are happy to work with them to fulfill their expansion needs.”
This will be the fourth MRI in the building. Peninsula Imaging is adding cutting edge technology to the practice as there are only a few of this specific machine in the United States. Due to the weight of the MRI machine being installed, Gillis Gilkerson will need to gut out the room and pour a thickened reinforced concrete slab to support its weight. They will also be required to tear out a 10X10 section on the east side of the building so a crane can swing the MRI machine into the building.
“Gillis Gilkerson is doing a great job,” said Thomas Spencer, director of operations for Peninsula Imaging. “We felt more comfortable going with them and their sub-contractors for this job. The sooner they get it done, the sooner we can start scanning patients.”
