Arc Building Partners to Lead Renovations of New Era Field Premium Areas

BUFFALO, N.Y. – Arc Building Partners announced it has been selected to serve as construction manager to complete significant renovations to the sideline clubs, end zone clubs and other premium areas at New Era Field. This multi-faceted project, which will be privately funded by Buffalo Bills owners Terry and Kim Pegula, will include the first-ever renovation of the sideline clubs as well as major
upgrades to premium areas built in the early 90’s.

“We are incredibly excited to have this opportunity to work at New Era Field. Throughout the season, we saw the Buffalo Bills put in the hard work necessary to grind out some big wins at home. Our construction team will bring a similar attitude to this project at the stadium — doing whatever it takes to get the job done and deliver an exceptional final product for our clients and the fans who will enjoy the renovations,” said Frank Ciminelli II, president of Arc Building Partners.

The renovation project ultimately aims to enhance the game-day experience for fans. Arc will complete upgrades to the sideline clubs that will help improve traffic flow and provide fans with more efficiently designed areas to congregate inside when not in their seats. For example, the bar will be moved out of the center and replaced with two service-area bars at each end of the clubs. This will enhance the functionality of the space and limit congestion for ticket holders.

Arc’s team will also complete upgrades to the M&T Club and Goal Line Club at the end zones of New Era Field.

The project will kick-off immediately following the conclusion of the Bills’ 2017 season, and it will be completed by the start of the 2018 season.

“As we prepare for this expedited project timeline, our team at Arc Building Partners will rely on our experience with fast-track, complex projects that require collaboration and an ability to overcome challenges with ingenuity and persistence,” added Ciminelli. “With our construction management staff and our trusted subcontractor partners, we have a track record of delivering on projects like this.”

Throughout their careers, Ciminelli and his key leaders at Arc have gathered vast experiences in entertainment, sports and hospitality construction management, working on projects such as past work at New Era Field, Miami Valley Gaming and Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center.

In addition, the firm works with clients that seek to achieve success early-on, while also tackling complex projects that require true partnership and innovative consulting at the inception stage in order to reduce risk and guarantee positive outcomes.
