Foxconn Technology Group's factory in Mount Pleasant, Wis., will be constructed with exterior walls of precast concrete and metal paneling, according to documents made public in advance of a meeting Wednesday of the village Plan Commission, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Architectural drawings show a 993,000-square-foot building with a footprint of about 860,000 square feet. The space occupied by a mezzanine in parts of the one-story structure appears to account for the difference.
The campus was originally billed as a manufacturer of Gen 10.5 LCD display screens, the largest in the world. The company later scaled back to a Gen 6 facility that would make a variety of screen sizes. Last week company executives said the products made at the Foxconn facility would be extended to include servers, networking products and automotive central controls.
