Gillis Gilkerson Hired to Renovate Taylor Bank Main Office in Berlin, Maryland
SALISBURY, MD – October 30, 2018 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted construction management and general contracting firms on Delmarva, announced renovations have started on Taylor Bank at 24 North Main Street in Berlin, Maryland. The 5,000 square foot main office building, originally built in 1906, is undergoing workspace and office renovations to improve efficiency, HVAC, lighting, and flooring upgrades.
“We worked with the client in 2017 when we turned the historic Marine Bank in Chincoteague to a new Taylor Bank branch,” said Tyler Barnes, vice president of Gillis Gilkerson. “We value the relationship we have with them and look forward to transforming the Berlin office to better serve their customers and continue to grow in the community.”
The Taylor Bank headquarters in Berlin has been through four expansions since 1906. While this project is not an expansion, the renovations will add additional security to the building and provide for an improved customer experience and employee efficiency.
“We are delighted to be working with Gillis Gilkerson on this important renovation” stated Ray Thompson, President, Taylor Bank. “They are excellent to work with. Not only do they have experience in the renovation of historic buildings, but they are very mindful of our customers and our staff to keep them as comfortable as possible, with no disruptions to daily bank operations.”
Gillis Gilkerson project manager Tyler Barnes and superintendent Steve Eshleman are on schedule to complete the project by January, 2019.
