Sussex County Habitat for Humanity

Georgetown, DE


This unique project was completed – with the help of Habitat volunteers – in December of 2009. The 3,500 square-foot one-story building, which was designed by George, Miles and Buhr, houses the main offices for the organization. With seven offices, a conference room, and flex space for cubicles, the building also offers another 1,000 square feet of space that Habitat is currently renting to another non-profit.

Working with the group to discover ways to lower costs, Gillis Gilkerson supervised and coordinated volunteers who helped to frame the structure, install vinyl siding and work on other projects to reduce the costs to Habitat.

Giving back to the community is one of the company’s core principles, and this project showcased that dedication.

“One of the great things about working with Gillis Gilkerson was they understood Habitat and who we were,” said Sussex County Habitat Executive Director Kevin Gilmore. “While we build houses, it’s a different language when you talk about a commercial building. They were really able to bridge the conversation with us as the client, and the architect and the funder. They helped everything move forward. And they allowed us to bring in volunteers to help control our costs. A lot of companies that bid on the project were not open to that. But right out of the gate they said “We understand what you do and we’re willing to work with you.”
