At the Foxconn Technology Group campus in Mount Pleasant on Aug. 19, project overseer Adam Jelen of Gilbane Exyte talks about the start of vertical construction at the future liquid-crystal-display screen manufacturing facility that day. On Wednesday, Foxconn announced the start of roof installation on the nearly 1 million-square-foot building.

MOUNT PLEASANT — Foxconn Technology Group and its construction manager, Gilbane Exyte, announced the start of roof installation of the company’s nearly 1 million-square-foot advanced-manufacturing plant on the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park campus.

The building is to become North America’s first and only thin-film-transistor, liquid-crystal-display fabrication plant or “fab.” Vertical construction started in August.

During roof installation, approximately 16,000 yards of concrete will be poured onto a metal deck. This work will be completed by three roofing crews in order to meet an aggressive construction schedule.

Foxconn has awarded more than $250 million to date in total contract value for work at the Wisconn Valley campus, including the recent announcement of awards totaling $83 million to more than one dozen Wisconsin businesses for roofing systems, building enclosure, civil and landscaping services.
