“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.
