Tubelite provides storefront, curtainwall, entrance and daylight control systems to commercial building teams.

All of Tubelite’s architectural products are manufactured using EcoLuminum™, a high recycled-content aluminum billet composition featuring environmentally-friendly finishes.

A part of Tubelite’s environmentally-responsible practices and customer support, it is a member of the USGBC, an exhibitor at the national Greenbuild conference, and an active participant in local USGBC chapters. The company encourages LEED education, certification and accreditation.

Schoeb shares his knowledge through presentations and articles. Recent opportunities have included groups and publications associated with the USGBC, the American Institute of Architects (AIA), and the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI).

An engineer in the composites materials field for 18 years, Schoeb’s experience includes quality assurance, product development, manufacturing engineering, and structural engineering. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Wayne State University in Detroit and continues to pursue professional development opportunities, such as the LEED Green Associate Certification.

The LEED Green Associate credential, introduced in 2009, demonstrates comprehensive knowledge in green building and the LEED building rating system. It distinguishes individuals who support, but may not directly participate in, green building in their regular professional work. This credential is also a prerequisite to pursue the next tier of accreditation, LEED Accredited Professional with Specialty.
