Foxconn Technology Group plans to select Providence, Rhode Island-based Gilbane Building Co. as the general contractor for its $10 billion Mount Pleasant manufacturing campus, according to numerous real estate and construction industry sources.
“Everyone kind of knows,” said a construction industry source who did not want to be identified.
Gilbane, which has an office in Milwaukee, will serve as the general
contractor, working with another international company based in Germany
that focuses on clean air, that source said.
Gilbane has led several major construction projects in Wisconsin. The
firm worked with Milwaukee-based CG Schmidt as general contractor on
the Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons project.
In a statement, Foxconn said it is moving forward with all aspects of its Wisconsin campus.
