The Boy Scouts of America Theodore Roosevelt Council and BBS Architects, Landscape Architects and Engineers broke ground for the new Hickox Dining Hall at the Schiff Scout Reservation in
Wading River, N.Y. More than 1,000 scouts, parents, council leaders, volunteers, and community members participated in the ceremony.

The $1.9-million, 7,100-square-foot dining hall reflects the traditional architecture of a scouting camp. The interiors will house a 3,500-square-foot dining room, an 1,800-square-foot commercial kitchen with a walk-in freezer and refrigerator, handicapped restrooms, and a storage room. The dining room will feature an18-foot-high, 15-foot-wide, paneled climbing wall, manufactured by Eldorado Climbing Walls.

The new dining hall will replace a building lost to a fire in 2011. In addition to BBS, the project team includes HE2 Project Development, construction manager; Thomas D. Reilly, P.E., structural engineer; Deli Design, kitchen consultant; and Construction Consultants L.I., general contractor.

The Boy Scouts of America Theodore Roosevelt Council serves 10,500 youth and 3,800 adult volunteers in New York State’s Nassau County on Long Island.
