Peninsula Wellness and Valucentric Open Doors in New Gillis Gilkerson Built Locations

SALISBURY, MARYLAND – December 8, 2020 – The Principals of Gillis Gilkerson (GGI) are pleased to announce the recent completion of two development projects local to Salisbury, Maryland. As a direct result of the construction and development firm’s ability to creatively source property solutions and think outside of the box, both Peninsula Wellness (also known as Peninsula Alternative Health) and Valucentric (formerly The Trice Group) now occupy freshly redeveloped, customized office and retail space within Salisbury’s city limits.

“Getting both of these clients to the finish line and open for business with minimal disruptions was a win-win,” said Gillis Gilkerson Principal, Bradley Gillis. “We value the trust that Peninsula Wellness and Valucentric have in our team and are grateful for the partnerships we have built with both companies.”

In April 2020, local appraisal firm, Valucentric, relocated from their long-term home on Mount Hermon Road to the newly redeveloped 600 Glen Avenue property, leaving behind a vacancy that was soon filled by Peninsula Wellness.  Joining other tenants such as Pure Fitness, Peninsula Orthopedic Associates, CubeSmart and South Moon Under, Valucentric now occupies roughly 4,500 square feet of premier professional office space.

Gillis Gilkerson’s scope of work for the Valucentric build included select demolition, new interior framing, insulation and drywall, acoustical ceilings, and HVAC, plumbing and electrical work. Vice President Tyler Barnes and Superintendent Don Brady worked alongside Valucentric to meet various specifications including preservation of the building’s industrial style with exposed trusses and duct work. 

The construction and development company delivered the turnkey, custom fit-out as part of the final redevelopment phase of 600 Glen Avenue. In just two years, Gillis Gilkerson transformed the 160,000 square foot vacant manufacturing facility into a highly frequented community asset. Upon final buildout completion for all tenants thus far, Gillis Gilkerson has achieved complete client satisfaction.

“I have had a great working relationship with Gillis Gilkerson for over thirty years,” said Lee Trice, Founder and Principal of Valucentric. “The process was painless, and they provided a seamless transition. We navigated different challenges together and they did a fantastic job.”

In mid-September 2020, Peninsula Wellness opened the doors to their new holistic, alternative wellness campus located at 1003 Mount Hermon Road, former home of Valucentric. Prior to the redevelopment of their current space, the company occupied +/- 2,400 square feet on Snow Hill Road. Upon learning of their growth and plans for service expansion, Gillis Gilkerson’s development team offered up a unique solution allowing Peninsula Wellness the flexibility to fully design a building to suit their specific needs.

In their new location, Peninsula Wellness gains roughly 8,000 square feet. With the added space, they have expanded their product and service lines to include a retail storefront for the general public, educational events and programs, and onsite medical practitioners.

Led by Vice President Tyler Barnes, Gillis Gilkerson’s construction team completed all interior and exterior renovations to the Mount Hermon Road property. Despite COVID-related challenges, GGI efficiently transitioned the building from a traditional office to an aesthetically designed medical campus.

“Our business faced a multitude of challenges that were based not only upon the industry we’re in, but also the extreme growth we’ve experienced over the last thirty-six months,” said Anthony Darby, Chief Executive Officer of Peninsula Alternative Health. “Joey Gilkerson and the Gillis Gilkerson team were solution oriented and able to address our challenges head-on. Our new space turned out fantastic. Our patients are thrilled!”

What Our Clients Say

“Gillis Gilkerson has been extremely accommodating to work with. As an out-of-town developer we face the challenge not knowing how things work in a different market. Dwight Miller has been forth coming with the information needed and is always accessible. We made some demands throughout the project thus far that he has continuously met to our standards. It is great to work with a general contractor that is always available and makes our job as developers easier.”

~ Jerry Passaro,
Jamestown Development 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!”
