Gilbane | Turner Join for New Buffalo Bills Stadium Groundbreaking Ceremony

BUFFALO, NY — The joint venture of Gilbane Building Company and Turner Construction Company announces that a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new home of the Buffalo Bills. The stadium, to be named Highmark Stadium, will be the largest project ever built in Western New York. It is scheduled to host games beginning in 2026.

Representatives of the Buffalo Bills including team owner Terry Pegula, civic leaders including Governor of New York Kathy Hochul and Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, joined members of the Gilbane | Turner team for the ceremonial launch of construction of the new stadium.

The stadium will accommodate approximately 63,000 people. It will offer a mixture of general seating, club seating, premium seating, and suite offerings as well as standing-room-only and party decks. The stadium will offer wider concourses, elevated food and beverage offerings, and modern entertainment technologies. Amenity spaces will wrap the perimeter of the main and upper concourses to provide wind and weather protection for patrons, and open views to the field.

“This is an exciting moment in building the new home for the Buffalo Bills,” said John LaRow, Senior Vice President, Gilbane Building Company. “This project will raise the bar on stadium construction and create incredible new experiences and memories for Bills fans."

The fan experience in the new stadium will offer an atmosphere that preserves the uniquely Buffalo outdoor game-day environment. A roof canopy will be built to keep approximately 65% of seats covered from precipitation to provide weather protection and increased fan comfort.

“Our goal is to build a fan-focused, football-first facility that will deliver a vibrant gameday atmosphere unlike any other in the NFL,” said Turner Vice President and General Manager Carl Stewart. “The stadium will be built for Buffalo, and we are committed to providing opportunities for members of the Buffalo community to participate in the construction of this stadium.”

In addition to NFL events and other sporting events, the stadium will be designed and built to accommodate multi-purpose events such as concerts, community events, and programs including small scale gatherings and events, including, potentially, high school and/or college soccer matches.
