Boy Scouts Buckskin Council – Charleston, WV

The Buckskin Council Boy Scouts has a beautiful facility helping them meet their mission and double the area served. Pray Construction led the design-build team for the $3.7 million, 13,000 SF project. The original office, built 40 years earlier, was renovated and a new wing added. The new space includes a large activities area, showers, and a kitchen for scouting activities. From this wing, scouts can access the fire ring and camping area on the riverbank. The new area includes a Scout Store which stocks all scouts’ essentials. A conference center, with a beautiful river view, was added as well. The timber frame entrance leads to a unique lobby space with vaulted ceilings, an 18-foot artificial tree which shades a park bench and a life-sized bronze sculpture of building’s name sake, H. Bernard Wehrle, Sr. A large deck sits above a fire ring near the river’s edge, perfect for local and visiting scouts.

Listen to Jeff Purdy“Pray Construction delivered our new building on time and on budget. They were very professional in how they do business, but also provided a personal level of service that made our experience with them comfortable and accommodating. I would not hesitate using them again for any construction project.”
