Dwight Miller and his team at GGI did an outstanding job of renovating our Shore United Ocean City Bank. Greg Ennis was very responsive with any issues, and with all 40 year old buildings – there will always be issues - but they tackled them effectively and efficiently. They worked well with all of our outside vendors to facilitate a seamless integration of our specialized equipment. They delivered a great product for us – and we are very pleased with the results. I highly recommend them to anyone that is considering a commercial project. Their team is prepared, knowledgeable and professional. They have given new life to an old building.
Tom MearsPresident & CEO, Shore United Bank
Gillis Gilkerson was wonderful to work with – very professional, reasonable, and they were able to work with our timeline. The GGI team was able to work with our modest nonprofit budget and we now have a beautiful space that is affordable and accessible for our clients. I would highly recommend this top-notch outfit.
Meredith GirardExecutive Director, Mid Shore Pro Bono
Working with GGI was a really good experience. I appreciated all the help in completing my project in a timely manner. I have been happy with the results.
Mike Truitt, Jared King, and the whole Gillis Gilkerson team were terrific during our build process, from planning to delivery. They were supportive throughout and worked very well with our industry specific vendors. The GGI team ensured quality work and an on-time delivery. They were especially supportive in providing regular communication and constructive response and feedback to our questions and changes. The GGI team were clearly prepared, knowledgeable, and professional. They delivered a great product, an Artisans’ Bank Retail Branch and Lending Center from which we are proud to serve the Rehoboth-Lewes communities.
Kevin MccormickSenior Vice President, Artisans Bank
From start to finish, Gillis Gilkerson was phenomenal to work with. Through the bid process they were completely on target and with the timeline of the project. Tyler Barnes is hard working and a pleasure to work with. He pushed the project through the short timeline and really went above and beyond to meet our deadline.
Gillis Gilkerson is always a pleasure to work with. They assisted with the permitting process from the beginning and have a great reputation for being on time and on budget while delivering a quality product. Delaware is growing and Rt. 113 is a hot spot making Millsboro the crossroads of Delmarva. We are excited to build a new business for locals and travelers alike.

When the Lower Shore Chapter of the American Red Cross’s office was broken into, we immediately called Gillis Gilkerson. They responded immediately and made all of the necessary repairs at no charge. It looked better than ever!
Alan leeExecutive Director, Lower Shore Red Cross
(Gillis Gilkerson) made the entire construction process amazingly simple for us. They handled all the phases of the process … (and) there was always a construction foreman on site providing supervision. The best part of all was the final result – a well-designed, quality built office building
William R. McCainMAI, MBC – W.R. McCain & Associates, Inc.
The global expertise in all aspects of the building construction and access to various sub-contractors was a blessing given the number of technical details that needed to be attended to while we obtained certification from the state health care officials.
Genesh BaluRegional Enterprises, LLC, Seaford Specialty Surgery Center
For a design/build project it is unusual for the initial cost estimates and timing to be maintained and in this case the project was completed on time and the costs were held to the contract level. In going into a design/build project like this, one always wonders if the right decision was made on the contractor selected. Now that the project has been completed, I can say that I know we made the right decision with Gillis Gilkerson.

David B. SeeChief, City of Salisbury Fire Department
We embarked on a journey to create a state of the art high definition television studio and have completed that mission. The expertise from Gillis Gilkerson in all aspects of the building construction was a blessing as this project has numerous technical and on-air related projects that held the attention of our own staff. Thank you for going the extra step in making this complicated project a complete success for Draper Holdings and the entire Delmarva viewing audience.
John A. Hopkins IIIProject Manager, WBOC TV-16

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.

This ramp will allow her accessibility to the Wicomico Transit van needed for transportation to Deer’s Head Center where she undergoes kidney dialysis three times a week.

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.
Ralph PilandSalisbury Zoo Director
We chose Gillis Gilkerson based on dependability, service, quality and costs. Dwight Miller was responsible for pricing and the quality of materials we could get for the best price. His knowledge allowed us to meet our timetables and deadlines and gave us one of the nicest office structures in Salisbury.
Edward J. WilliamsPeninsula Cardiology Associates, P.A.
Your generosity of time, energy, employees and community service has enabled our patient to have safe, reliable access in and out of her home to continue dialysis three times a week. The ramp also provides an exit for the patient in the event of an emergency.
