As part of a 10-year lease agreement to keep the Buffalo Bills in Western New York, Ralph Wilson Stadium is undergoing $130 million in upgrades.
"It's fantastic for the Buffalo residents. It's something that's been needed for a long time," said project manager Matt Squires.
The facility will have a friendlier stadium entrance and improved restrooms and concessions. There are also two other projects in the works.
Batavia-based company Manning Squires Hennig is handling construction.
"One is a 12,500 square foot operations building that will house some of their maintenance vehicles and some offices for their operations," said Squires.
A 33,000 square foot commissary building will be used for concession vendors.
Squires says the projects will bring around 40 jobs to the area.
"This expansion project should help make it a much more fan-friendly experience," said Squires.
This is not the first time Manning Squires Hennig worked with the Bills on a project.
"In 1995, we worked with them to build the Ralph Wilson Field House, their practice facility," said Squires.
Squires says the company is responsible for the entire construction of the operations building. It is putting up the shell of the commissary building, and currently bidding on the rest of the project. He says they hope to have the projects completed by January but says it's not easy doing construction during football season.
"It's kind of an ever-changing situation over there with the guys. Everybody is very busy so we just need to stay out of their way," said Squires.
He says they are working to have the projects complete before winter begins.
