ISG and DeLeers Construction to partner with Foxconn on the Downtown WaterMark Building Project
Mount Pleasant, WI – ISG and DeLeers Construction, Inc., together with Foxconn Technology Group (Foxconn), today announced that work will begin for the design and construction of Foxconn Place Green Bay's 4,800 square-foot second floor located at the WaterMark Building in downtown Green Bay. After a stringent review of competitive bid submissions, Foxconn awarded ISG, a nationally recognized architecture, engineering, environmental and planning firm, and DeLeers Construction, Inc., the contracts. Both firms were chosen for their wealth of experience and understanding of the local Green Bay area.
ISG, who expanded its Green Bay office presence to the WaterMark building in early 2019, understands first-hand the benefits associated with being located within this thriving area.
"ISG is no stranger to the Green Bay community given its local presence for more than 25 years through a previous acquisition. However, to be successful in this sort of project, it takes more than history; it requires a deep commitment to contextual design principles and we are eager to incorporate Foxconn's strategic vision, surroundings, and overall user experience to create an impactful space," explains Mark Chambers, AIA, CDT, LEED AP, ISG Principal and Green Bay office leader. "Through a partnership with DeLeers, our teams will help take the already thriving WaterMark Building and bring it to the next level," notes Mark.
"The timing of this partnership is impeccable; 2020 will mark the 75th anniversary of DeLeers Construction, Inc., servicing the greater Green Bay community. In tandem with moving into our 75th year, we are excited and ready to service the needs of Foxconn," said Jim DeLeers, President of DeLeers Constriction, Inc.
Both firms will start with the conceptualization of the design for Foxconn, followed by a submission to the City of Green Bay for their approvals. Foxconn will then begin construction on the interior build upon approval. The building will house Foxconn events, including upcoming Foxconn Tech Talks and recruitment drives, and be a space for community engagement.
"From the start, the establishment of Foxconn Place Green Bay has been a key part of Foxconn's long-term strategic initiatives, underscoring our continued commitment to the local communities in Wisconsin," said Dr. Alan Yeung, Director of U.S. Strategic Initiatives, Foxconn. "It is important that Foxconn's partners be not only from Wisconsin but situated in the Green Bay area. Both ISG and DeLeers Construction, Inc. stood out in both aspects, and we are looking forward to working with them for the design-build of the Foxconn Place Green Bay."
