It’s huge!

Construction on Faurecia’s massive new 278,000 square foot, three-story building in the Oakland Technology Park is progressing on schedule.  It will be the North American Headquarters for the company, which is the fifth largest automotive supplier in the world.

The general contractor, General Development Company, broke ground on the $24 million project in early May.  The photos below show that most of the steel is now up.

The shell of the building is anticipated to be enclosed by October, with final completion by mid-March.  With just seven months to go, this project is moving forward in record time.
