Gillis Gilkerson Completes Renovations to Taylor Bank in Berlin, Maryland

Gillis Gilkerson Completes Renovations to Taylor Bank in Berlin, Maryland

SALISBURY, MD – June 5, 2019 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted construction management and general contracting firms on Delmarva, announced the completion of renovations to Taylor Bank at 24 North Main Street in Berlin, Maryland.  The 5,000 square foot main office building, originally built in 1906, underwent HVAC upgrades and architectural improvements to the flooring, offices and lighting.

“We worked with Taylor Bank in 2017 when we gutted and restored their historic Chincoteague branch,” said Dwight Miller, Vice President of Gillis Gilkerson.  “We value the relationship we have with the bank and are glad we had the opportunity to transform the Berlin branch to better serve their customers and continue to grow in the community.”

Taylor Bank in Berlin has been through four expansions since 1906.  While this project was not an expansion, the renovations added security to the building and allows for better utilization of the working space.

“The renovation was well-planned and well-executed while the building remained occupied,” said Ray Thompson, chief executive officer and president, Taylor Bank.  “We could not have conducted this renovation without the planning, expertise, and flexibility of Gillis Gilkerson.  They have extensive experience in renovating historic buildings, understood the logistical challenges, and expertly guided us through the process.  Their on-site staff and sub-contractors were always professional and courteous to our employees and customers.  We could not be more satisfied with our experience with Gillis Gilkerson, but more importantly, the beautiful end product that was delivered to us by this quality firm.”

Gillis Gilkerson project manager Tyler Barnes and superintendent Steve Eshleman worked diligently and did not have to close the building or alter banking hours for the client during the renovation.
