“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.

All these factors made it imperative that the project be completed in a timely and budgetarily consistent fashion.”
