Gillis Gilkerson on Schedule with Park Place Hotel Renovations in OCMD
SALISBURY, MD – November 2, 2016 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, announced renovations to Park Place Hotel have begun. The hotel is located at 2208 North Baltimore Avenue in Ocean City, Maryland. The 70,627 square foot renovation project will add an entire floor and expanded pool deck to the existing hotel.
“Adding an entire floor to the top of a 17 year old hotel is a unique renovation,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “The added amenities and extra space will further enhance visitor experience to an already highly rated hotel in Ocean City.”
Other additions include a new pool, pool deck with glass railings, gym, laundry room and trash tower. Renovations will convert two sets of rooms into suites equipped with full kitchens and separate bedrooms. The old pool will be transformed into a splash pool and balconies will be added to the sixth & seventh floor.
“Now is the time to take on a project of this scope and size,” said Bill Douglas, hotel representative. “We are on a tight timeline because of the nature of the business we are in. Superintendent, Bill Schiavo is a great guy to work with and we are very comfortable with Gillis Gilkerson’s reputation in the community. We have no doubt that Palmer and Dwight will deliver on time and within budget.”
Park Place Hotel closed on September 26, 2016 and work started immediately. Currently the Gillis Gilkerson crew is finishing up demolition, tearing up blacktop, driving structural piling and making preparations for concrete and steel work.
According to Gillis Gilkerson project manager, Gary Townsend and superintendent Bill Schiavo, the project is scheduled for completion May 2017.
