Dynamic Lifecycle Innovations Facility Design + Renovation

Brice Prairie, WI | Food + Industrial

Overview

Dynamic Lifecycle Innovations, one of the fastest growing full-service electronics and materials life cycle management corporations in the nation, enlisted the full-service capabilities to ISG to efficiently design a new facility at its Wisconsin headquarters and supporting infrastructure to accommodate their growing operations.


Opportunity

Specializing in IT asset disposition, e-recycling, materials lifecycle solutions, legislative compliance, materials recovery, and product refurbishment, Dynamic Lifecyle Innovations needed a facility that would allow them to sort and automate more of its custom solutions in-house, and in a secure and environmentally responsible manner.

Solution

ISG assisted with several expansions and additions for the company over the last several years. The first involved renovation of a former 220,000 sq. ft. ammunitions facility. Creative storm water management features were developed to maximize site efficiency and truck circulation areas, and semi-truck loading and unloading facilities were improved, enhanced, and created. To support new internal processes and equipment, several building modifications were designed, and the existing office structure received a custom layout and updated exterior appearance.

In 2018, a new 140,020 sq. ft. materials processing and recovery facility was designed, which included a 12,766 sq. ft. two-story office building on 45 acres of undeveloped land. The new facility expands its processing capabilities for complex materials, such as electronic, precious metal, nonferrous and nonmetal materials. Hard-to-recycle items are ensured maximum recovery and increased risk management, ensuring materials are processed safely, securely, and sustainably.

Working with the company’s vendor and multiple regulatory agencies, ISG provided conceptual site planning around their specialized process and vision for future expansion. Services included site selection and review of alternative sites, local and state permitting for utilities and water infrastructure and also archaeological and threatened/endangered species. The project team also assisted in helping the company analyze the feasibility and return on investment (ROI) for a roof-mounted solar energy array for future installation.

ISG identified and helped secure a Wisconsin Department of Transportation grant for infrastructure and site development reimbursement assistance and ultimately the construction of 2,600 feet of paved highway (Dynamic Way).


“We are committed to safeguarding our customers and the environment, and this new facility allows us to deliver even greater processing capabilities with a vendor they know they can trust.”
