BUFFALO, N.Y. — We now know who is building the new Buffalo Bills stadium.

Pegula Sports and Entertainment selected Gilbane Building Company and Turner Construction Company in association with 34 Group.

Gilbane and Turner have combined before to build or renovate 16 NFL stadiums. 34 Group, which was founded by Bills hall-of-famer Thurman Thomas, will oversee the project.

New York State approved the construction of the $1.4 billion stadium on March 28, which will ensure that the Bills stay in western New York for at least the next 30 years. New renderings of the bills stadium design were released last week.
