From AdvantageWest:

As of late February, more than 290 workers – most from Rutherford Co and the surrounding area – were clocking in at Facebook’s data center construction site, pouring concrete, erecting the steel frame for the main building, installing a power substation, and more. Over 60 local companies are or have been involved in the project. Subcontractors interested in work at the site should email relevant information to the project’s general contractor, DPR/Fortis. Individuals seeking work at the Facebook Data Center Construction site should regularly check HERE for subcontractor updates. Subcontractors will hire staff in their respective fields, and are planning meetings to explain their needs.
