Fond du Lac's C.D. Smith receives additional contracts for Foxconn project | Streetwise
MOUNT PLEASANT – Fond du Lac’s role in the Foxconn project has grown, with two more contracts awarded to C.D. Smith Construction.
On Wednesday, Foxconn Technology Group announced it awarded eight businesses contracts worth $15 million in total for the Mount Pleasant project. C.D. Smith received two contracts — one for concrete work and another for interior and building enclosures work, according to a news release from Foxconn.
Founded in 1934 by Charles D. Smith, the construction management and general contracting company works in multiple construction sectors, including: corporate, correctional facility, food-processing, healthcare, higher education, hospitality, housing, industrial, K-12 education, municipal, multipurpose and recreational, parking structure, senior housing, spiritual building and water treatment, according to its website.
These are not the first contracts C.D. Smith has received. In May, Foxconn awarded the Fond du Lac-based company a contract for work on concrete foundation and excavation. It received one of the first contracts given for “vertical construction” on the Gen 6 factory, which will replace the “Generation 10.5” flat-screen plant originally planned for the site. The Gen 6 factory will have a lower cost, according to USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin archives.
Other local businesses have received contracts for work on the Foxconn project, including Brownsville’s Michels Corp. and Eden’s Guelig’s Waste Removal and Demolition LLC.
