The amount of game- planning, and then the ultimate execution of that game plan, makes what Rex Ryan and his coaches do all week seem like third-grade math for an e ighth-grader. T eam president Russ B randon assembled a group from One Bills Drive to pull off this monumental task, and many had a major role including chief administrator officer David Wheat, Sara Petrone (project coordinator for business development), Erica Muhleman ( vice-president, corpo- r ate sales), Greg Estes ( video director) and Dan E vans (vice-president, information technology) to name a few. But Meganck has been the point person since late last year when the Bills first learned they had been selected to play in one of the three London games being staged by the NFL in 2015. “He was in on many things; Kevin did a great job, he was awesome, but this was the true defini- t ion of a team effort,” Brandon said Tuesday night while dining at a sponsors dinner. “It was an unbelievable undertaking and a true testament to the great work of all our people.” The level of detail and p lanning is astounding, and it included two early s hipments of supplies — one via ocean freight, one via air freight — and two chartered jets. The first c harter departed Sunday night following the Bills’ 34-21loss to Cincinnati and was populated by players, coaches, and key p ersonnel. The second p lane leaves Buffalo Wednesday and will carry anyone else in the organization is coming — the entire work force was invite d by Terry and Kim Peg- u la — and sponsors and guests of the team. “I like to consider myself a fairly detailed person so I enjoy a challenge, b ut it definitely was quite a project,” said Meganck, w ho has worked for the Bills for 12 years in a va- r iety of roles. “Early in m y career when I was a s couting assistant I ran our training camp for two or three years, so I have experience with that and I had an idea of what some of the departments were looking for and how something like this should run.” The first step was to f igure out where the Bills w ould be staying, and of c ourse practicing. There w as a trip to London early this year to scout out all of the facilities that the NFL offers as options, and after visiting four, the Bills settled on a spectacular venue called The Grove, which was formerly a mansion on an estate in the rolling countryside hills of Chandlers Cross, Watford, Hertfordshire. The Grove was home base for England’s nation- a l soccer team for its workouts prior to the World Cup in 2014, and that was one of the selling points for the Bills, the fact that the practice field was right on the premises. Teams that don’t spend the entire week here, such a s the Jaguars who are arriving in London Thurs- d ay, don’t necessarily need a practice field at their lodging site because they’d only need transport ation to conduct one practice. The Bills are treating this like a normal work week and will practice three times in Lond on, so they wanted eve rything in one place. Meganck said the league has set up a makeshift locker room inside a heated tent, and it inc ludes a weight room. T eam meetings will be held in the hotel. Once the Bills had a place to stay and work, Meganck had to coordi- n ate the transportation of a ll the supplies that the t eam would need. You name it, it’s on the list, and e verything had to be met iculously catalogued r ight down to brand and description, model numbers, serial numbers, value and country of origin code, with each box’s weight, length, width, and height measurements. “We started with an ocean freight shipment after training camp in Aug ust,” Meganck said. “In c onjunction with starting c amp (at St. John Fisher C ollege) we were already thinking about London and shipping over supplies.” This shipment was for consumables, meaning anything that was going to London and not coming back to Buffalo, and it covered a wide spectrum. There were office supplies right down to the simplest things such as paper, laminator pouches, p ens, highlighters, and markers. There was bottled water and sports drinks like Gatorade, Pe- dialite and Red Bull, condiments such as mustard, ketchup, barbecue and steak sauce, and other food like cereal, protein b ars, chips, and cookies. From the training r oom, there were things like workout clothes, scarves, jackets, hats, duffel bags, rain jackets, r ubbing alcohol, ammonia inhalants, athletic tape remover, Gatorade pumps with batteries, towels, coolers, and cups. And t here were gifts for spon- s ors and for the Play 60 youth event some of the players participated in on Tuesday where Hall of Fame quarterback Jim K elly was also on hand. T he air freight, which departed Buffalo a couple weeks ago, was for carnet, meaning items that were going to be returning with t he team. This transport w as largely for video and c omputer equipment, p ower adaptors, iPads, a nd chargers. O nce all that was coordinated, so began the process of making sure everyone in the traveling party had valid passport and paperwork, and helping those who didn’t to get it. “I don’t know if headache is the right word, but i t was definitely time-cons uming,” Meganck said of t hat chore. “We tried to be as thorough as we could as an organization and get copies of everybody’s passports just to make sure we have a backup if something goes wrong over there with a lost passport. Collecting them, it’s been a lot of time t racking people down to m ake sure we get every- t hing.” O nce in London — Meganck and the advance team arrived last Thursday — everything had to be organized and set up for the players’ arrival, including one of the most vital aspects: The food operation. The team chef worked with the hotel’s head chef to order the mainstay cuisine — meat, chicken, pasta, vegetables, etc. — that t hey will prepare every day for a group that numbers approximately 150 counting all team personnel. “We basically take over the kitchen at our hotel,” said Meganck. “We try to make things as close t o home as possible, comfort items for our players, o ur team. It’s like a mini training camp for us and we were lucky enough that we found a place w here we can operate out of and do everything at one facility.” At some point, Mega- nck and the others who s pent nearly a year eng ulfed in this endeavor may get to sit down and relax while in the United Kingdom, but what he’s looking forward to most i s, “When we come back w ith a victory, it’ll be a great feeling coming back on that long flight.” MAIORANA@Gannett . com London Continued from Page 1A “I don’t know if headache is the right word, but it was definitely time-consuming.” KEVIN MEGANCK BILLS’ DIRECTOR OF FOOTBALL OPERA TIONS work there will include replacing some 32,000 s quare feet of single-pane windows with energy effi- c ient windows, removing all non-load bearing interior walls and upgrading the space with new electric, HVAC and data services, as well as fire suppression systems. When c ompleted, the facility will offer widely flexible spaces that Rainaldi said could be built out to custom specifications for each tenant. The project was granted more than $6.7 million in mortgage, sales and property tax incentives on Tuesday by the County of Monroe Industrial Dev elopment Agency. COMIDA board mem- b er Mark Siwiec said the overall project is akin to something you would see i n Silicon Valley. J ack Moore, Henrietta town supervisor, said the K odak facility has been v acant for more than 15 years. “ This is great news for Henrietta,” he said. “It’s very rewarding to see we h ave a family in charge of this that has the vision and capabilities of bringing b ack this sleeping elephant.” R ainaldi said the project also will include amenities such as a dedicated space for food trucks, hiking trails through nearly 100 acres of woods on the property, a 250-person a mphitheater and features that capitalize on the near-mile of Genesee River that borders the site. The trails and water features will include Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant public access, he said. “We are going to be a platform to bring net new businesses to this area,” h e said. He said he’s been in talks with potential ten- a nts, but did not divulge their names. He said he’s been working closely with R ochester Institute of T echnology’s Venture Creations business incu- b ator and hopes some of t hose businesses could relocate to his space as they g row into new needs. On nearly 56 acres of the Riverwood site, devel- o pers Bob Morgan and David Christa have teamed up with Univer- s ity Student Living LLC to build 300,000 square feet o f new student housing. The project is expected to house as many as 687 students. Moore said there’s a significant need for such housing in town. “ We have a tremendous amount of single- family homes being rented to students and that’s creating a huge issue,” he said. The $47 million student housing project, The Cottages at East River, was granted a sales, mortgage and property tax incentive package worth $2.5 m illion during Tuesday’s meeting. C onstruction on that project could begin next month, with units ready f or students by the sum- m er of 2017. Other projects granted t ax abatements by COMI- D A on Tuesday include: a $2.3 million building exp ansion in Perinton for Dixon Schwabl Advertising; a $4.9 million redevel- o pment of Chase Tower in Rochester; a $3.6 million project to renovate an ex- i sting manufacturing facility in Rochester for S yntec Technologies Inc; a$2.3 million project to allow Lion’s Den 412 Properties LLC to buy, renovate and equip an existing building in Brighton; a $17.4 million senior living r esidence in Sweden; a $275,00 project to allow Van Hook Service Co., Inc. to purchase eight new fleet vehicles; a $370,000 project to assist an expansion of Butler/Till Media Services Inc. in Henrietta; and a $520,000 project for medical marijuana company Columbia Care NY LLC to open a dispen- s ary at the former ESL branch at Building 28 at E astman Business Park in Rochester.
