Gillis Gilkerson Breaks Ground for New Pets ER in Salisbury, Maryland


Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted construction management and general contracting firms on Delmarva, announced it has broken ground for the new Pets ER Veterinary Clinic on Punkin Court in Salisbury, Maryland.

“We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Pet’s ER on their new facility and help provide for the needs of their expanding staff and customer base, said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “It is exciting when a client shares their vision with us and we are able to fulfill that vision. We look forward to working with the team to ensure the clinic is fitted out to meet all their emergency needs.”

The one-story, 4,246 square foot building is being constructed of brick, siding and shingles, topped off with a metal roof. The new facility will double the amount of space Pets ER has in their current location, and will include additional exam rooms and a second surgery room.

“Gillis Gilkerson was recommended to me by my father, who had personal experience with them in the past,” said Dr. Beth Drewer, owner. “I knew of the various medical related projects they have been a part of, including the Wicomico Animal Hospital, which is a beautiful facility. I have found both Dwight Miller and Palmer Gillis very easy to work with and open to my ideas. So far, I have been very pleased.”

According to project manager Mike Truitt, completion of the clinic in scheduled for early summer 2018.
