Foxconn Technology Group and its construction manager, Gilbane | Exyte, today announced that five Wisconsin-based subcontractors are set to commence construction at its Gen6 advanced manufacturing facility campus located in the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in Racine County.

The contracts, which carry a combined total contract value of close to $34 million, will jumpstart the construction of vital utilities and roadways on the site.

“Foxconn is proud to announce these successful Wisconsin-based subcontractors who will help make the Gen6 facility a reality,” said Louis Woo, a Foxconn executive. “This investment will continue to provide new economic development to the local community and throughout the state.”

Prime subcontractors that were awarded contracts and will commence work on site utilities, roadways and associated storm drainage include Giles Engineering Associates Inc. and Payne & Dolan Inc., both of Waukesha; Staff Electric Co Inc., Menominee Falls; Hoffman Construction Co., Black River Falls; and A.W. Oakes & Sons Inc., Racine.

In addition to the announcement, Foxconn announced plans to issue initial bid packages for the construction of the Gen6 fabrication facility and ancillary buildings in May 2019.
