City of Salisbury Fire Department – Fire Headquarters
This $8 million, 41,000-square-foot building for the City of Salisbury Fire Department Headquarters was completed in 2008. It was a design-and-build project that challenged the Gillis Gilkerson team to meet a variety of needs for the department, including incorporating office space, large equipment storage, living space for on duty personnel, and a training facility for new recruits.
“Our fire headquarters is an outstanding example of the kind of work that Gillis Gilkerson can accomplish. They were a partner in ensuring that the space was a perfect fit for the Salisbury Fire Department,” said Jim Ireton, Mayor of Salisbury.
Gillis Gilkerson worked closely with fire department officials to understand how important layout and design is to response time. Locating necessary equipment storage near waiting fire trucks saves precious time in an emergency. The masonry building has enough floor space for 15 fire trucks and emergency vehicles, and includes a five-story concrete tower to simulate high-rise firefighting simulations.

~ Peter Jackson,
“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.”
~ Bruce Glisson,
Allen Memorial Baptist Church
“We are very excited to be open. This was definitely not an “off the shelf” type hotel, it was a custom design to maximize our guest’s 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.”
