Vertical construction is underway on Foxconn Technology Group's 993,460 square-foot Gen6 Fab facility at the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park in the Village of Mount Pleasant. This major milestone comes after work began on the foundations and footings for the facility in June.
This phase of construction will include more than 400 precast panels, each averaging 40 feet in height and weighing more than 32 tons. Waukesha-based Spancrete is making the panels in Valders, Wisconsin.
