Gillis Gilkerson stays on schedule with 94-guest-room hotel in RehobothMarriott Fairfield Inn & Suites on track to meet August completion deadline
Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted general contracting and construction management firms on Delmarva, announced timely progress, despite what Mother Nature has delivered, on the Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites in Rehoboth Beach.
“Our team has been diligent and determined to stay the course on this project,” said Michael Truitt, project manager, Gillis Gilkerson. “A little winter weather is not going to stand in the way of meeting our late summer 2014 completion date.”
The four-story, 60,300-square-foot structure, owned by Colonial Oaks Hotel LLC, includes 94 guest rooms, meeting space, an indoor pool and fitness room, and a basement bar and lobby equipped to serve hot breakfast to guests. The exterior is clad with a combination of cementations siding and EIFS to provide exterior walls with an effective insulated finished surface and waterproofing.
“Working with Gillis Gilkerson has been a wonderful experience,” said Christian Hudson of Hudson Management Group. “The highly knowledgeable team has provided excellent service and is spot-on with the time line and pricing for each phase of the project.”
The Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites is the first hotel the Hudson Management Group will own and manage. It is also the first time the Marriott brand will have a presence in southern Delaware. This particular franchise requires all bidding contractors be vetted and final approval given on the winning bid before ground is broken.
“When Marriott representatives found out we were looking to hire Gillis Gilkerson for the job, they gave their approval - no questions asked,” said Hudson. The hotel is located on Route 1 across from Atlantic Liquors, near Old Landing Road.
