Gillis Gilkerson Starts Construction on New Precious Paws Animal Hospital

SALISBURY, MD – August 22, 2019 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted Construction Management, General Contracting and Development firms on Delmarva, today announced the start of construction for the new Precious Paws Animal Hospital at 11843 Ocean Gateway in Ocean City, Maryland. 

“‘What a great opportunity to help a local business expand and double their space to meet customer needs,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “Our team is dedicated to making the process as easy as possible so the client can focus on their patients and make a seamless transition into their new space upon completion.” 

The 4,800 square foot, one-story building will have stone and vinyl siding. The new space will have four exam rooms, a comfort room, two surgery suites, a lobby and two waiting rooms, one for cats and one for dogs. Project manager Don Murray and superintendent Tim Swift expect to have the new veterinary hospital completed by the end of 2019. 

“We outgrew our space and with our current location being over 50 years old, it was time to expand,” said Brenda Maniatty, Precious Paws Animal Hospital owner. “Gillis Gilkerson has been great to work with. They are handling everything so we can continue to serve our customers. We knew they had veterinary experience because of the work they did for Pets ER and therefore have the foresight to think the project through to meet the needs of our staff and the animals we care for.”

What Our Clients Say

“Dwight Miller’s … knowledge of pricing and quality gave us one of the nicest office structures in Salisbury. Thank you Gillis Gilkerson!”

~ Edward J. Williams,
Peninsula Cardiology Associates, P.A.

“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.”

~ Don Hall,

This was definitely not an off-the-shelf type hotel. It was a custom design to maximize our guests’ experiences. There is nothing like this anywhere in our market area. Gillis Gilkerson did a great job and the quality and craftsmanship is second to none.

~ Christian Hudson,
Hudson Management Group

“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!”
