Feb 08, 2018

(Feb. 9, 2018) Gillis Gilkerson construction management and general contracting firm announced it has been hired to build a ticket booth and pump house for Frontier Town Splash Park, located at 8428 Stephen Decatur Highway in Berlin.

“This is an exciting project for the community and the swarms of summer visitors who vacation here,” said Tyler Barnes, vice president and project manager, Gillis Gilkerson. “These two structures will support the new water slides and splash areas being designed and built to enhance the campground’s water park.”

The 1,100-square-foot project includes a ticket booth that will be a wooden framed structure on a concrete slab with Hardi Board siding and an asphalt standing seam roof.

The pump house, also being built with a wooden frame, Hardi siding and asphalt shingles, will include a basement to house mechanical equipment. Both buildings are designed to complement the surrounding water park structures.

“We travel all over the country and build relationships with many different contractors,” said Gary Brill, Newman Group. “I have been very impressed with Tyler Barnes. He is very personable and responsive. We are very optimistic about this project and working with Gillis Gilkerson.”

It is scheduled for completion by April, before the Memorial Day holiday weekend. For more information, visit www.gillisgilkerson.com.
