The second round of information sessions have been announced to provide companies with details on the bidding process for the next phase of construction on Foxconn’s advanced manufacturing campus in Racine County. The information sessions will include two sessions held in Racine on Aug. 1.

The information sessions are open to all businesses, though they are specifically aimed at companies providing goods and services in construction logistics, roadways, site utilities, foundations, structure, enclosure, mechanical, electrical, plumbing systems, materials and equipment. These sessions will also include:

  • An update on the construction schedule, with a focus on the next 12 months; and
  • A detailed timeline on the next anticipated round of bidding.

Foxconn site development started with excavation work in April, which was followed with construction of a Multipurpose Building starting in this month. Construction of the Advanced Display Manufacturing buildings is anticipated to start in early to middle 2019.

Procurement (bidding) for subcontractors, vendors, suppliers and professional services firms will continue to follow “a clear and detailed process with good faith efforts to place Wisconsin First while building significant capacity in both workforce and businesses,” according to the project website.  Bid opportunities will be emailed to all companies that have registered to receive such information on https://foxconn-construction.gilbaneco.com as well as through the Wisconn Valley News.

Representatives from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), Foxconn Technology Group, and M+W | Gilbane, the project manager, will be on hand to answer questions about the project.

Advanced registration is required. For more information and to RSVP, click here.
