“When something is done right, you keep going back for more,” said Marty Neat, president and CEO, First Shore Federal.  “This is the fourth branch Gillis Gilkerson has built for us in addition to three renovation projects they finished for the bank.  The crews are consistent in their work, dependable and always manage each job efficiently and effectively.”  

“It is always nice when our team gets to see familiar faces on a job,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson.  “Productivity is always at its best when the working relationships are solid – as in the case with First Shore Federal.”

 “We are on time and scheduled to have the branch open the first quarter of 2015,” said Michael Truitt, project manager, Gillis Gilkerson.  “I have had the pleasure of working with the same team of people on each build and value the working relationship we have with the bank”.

What Our Clients Say

“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing. The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”
