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.”
