SALISBURY, MARYLAND – February 1, 2022 – The principals of Gillis Gilkerson (GGI) recently announced the firm’s completion of an interior renovation for Zips Dry Cleaners at 1305 South Salisbury Blvd in Salisbury, Maryland. The +/- 2,000 square foot, single story buildout included extensive mechanical work for the installation of the dry cleaning equipment. Project Manager Don Murray and Superintendent Charlie Morris completed the project in less than four months.

“We welcome Zips Dry Cleaners to the Salisbury area, said President Dwight Miller of Gillis Gilkerson. “Zips is a Maryland-based company with over 70 locations, this being their most recent opening. You can’t get any better than same day service when it comes to dry cleaning. We are happy we could help the franchise establish a presence in Salisbury.”

“Don was on point when it came to communication about project’s progress,” said owner Parin Patel. “The way he facilitated our weekly meetings and worked with the architect and engineers was very smooth. I will definitely use Gillis Gilkerson again for my next construction project.”

What Our Clients Say

“Without the professionalism and know-how of the Gillis Gilkerson team, all of our fundraising efforts would not have given us the final result of a beautiful symbol of our maritime heritage on the shores of the Choptank. The project’s unique design required an expertise and adaptation to construction in a maritime environment that Gillis Gilkerson was able to deliver.”

President,
Choptank River Lighthouse, Cambridge, MD

“Throughout the construction phase of this project it was necessary to page a representative from Gillis Gilkerson on a daily basis. I would estimate the average response time for a response was about three minutes. The team was always eager to address any questions or concerns that I had, and when any small problem did arise, they were always fixed quickly and efficiently. In short, there was little disruption of my busy practice and loss of income due to time spent working with the contractor.”

~ John Burkett,
Burkett and Burkett, D.D.S., P.A.

“Dr. Carol and David Lewis and I would like to extend a thank you to those involved in our repair project at the hospital. Jared orchestrated a prompt, efficient, and professional job. We were very pleased with everyone involved. We understand that you do not typically take on a small job such as ours was, and are grateful that you made an exception for us. Jared did an exceptional job in managing the job and keeping us updated.”

“The Salisbury Zoo is pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Gillis Gilkerson on its Animal Health Clinic project. Successful completion of the Clinic project was an essential component of the continued growth and professional accreditation of the Zoo. Additionally the project represented an active partnership between the Zoo, the City of Salisbury, the State of Maryland, and the Delmarva Zoological Society and the regional philanthropic community. All these factors made it imperative that the project be completed in a timely and budgetarily consistent fashion.”

“Gillis Gilkerson seamlessly made the transition from outside contractor to partner in the Animal Health Clinic project. They were proactive about reviewing the plan documents and specifications early in the construction process to make sure there were no problems as the work started. The team made every effort to stay ahead of the curve and even worked on marginal weather days in order to keep the project moving and on schedule. Gillis Gilkerson was just as invested in the success of this project as the Zoo, the City, and the rest of the project team.”

“The Salisbury Zoo would be happy to once again partner with Gillis Gilkerson on future endeavors.”

~ Ralph Piland,
Salisbury Zoo Director
