Tubelite celebrates 75 years of business

With the dawn of the new decade, Tubelite Inc. celebrates its diamond anniversary.

For 75 years, glazing contractors have counted on Tubelite’s dependable service, fabrication and distribution of architectural aluminum products. Part of Apogee Enterprises, Inc., the company is an industry leader in eco-efficient storefront, curtainwall and entrance systems, and recognized for its fast, reliable and consistent delivery.

Steve Green, Tubelite's President“We’re proud to be known as one of the industry’s premier architectural aluminum manufacturers specializing in pre-engineered aluminum framing systems,” said Steve Green, Tubelite’s president. “Each of our products is manufactured to meet the project’s aesthetic, performance and environmental goals. They also are manufactured for easy fabrication and installation to meet timeline and budget constraints.”

Tubelite was founded in 1945 by James T. Miller. The name “Tubelite” was coined to represent the tubes of aluminum and lites of glass. After five successful years working from a 50-by-60-feet alley-front building, Miller moved the company’s operations to a new, small building in Reed City, Michigan. The building has been added to more than 20 times since 1949, and continues to serve as Tubelite’s aluminum extrusion operation.

In 2003, Tubelite opened an additional location in Walker, Michigan for assembly, warehouse and distribution operations. Three years later, this became the company’s corporate office with added fabrication capabilities. Tubelite’s Dallas location, opened in 2013, provides additional fabrication, warehouse and shipping operations. The company also has an office in Warwick, Rhode Island.

Legacy Plaza unites seven nonprofits in a three-building complex featuring renovated exteriors with Tubelite’s energy-efficient systems

The new home to seven nonprofit partner organizations, Legacy Plaza encompasses three, renovated buildings on West 31st Street in Tulsa. The transformative community-focused campus was developed and funded through a generous gift from The Anne & Henry Zarrow Foundation. Contributing to the modern appearance and energy-efficient performance of this reimagined building complex, the aging windows were replaced with Tubelite Inc.’s 900RW ribbon window, Series 200 curtainwall and Wide Stile entrance systems.

Designed by KKT Architects, the firm described Legacy Plaza as “a symbol of the active engagement and collaboration of Tulsa area nonprofits, philanthropy and family trusts. This formerly under-utilized, highly visible commercial property consists of two high-rise towers and a matching three-story building. … transformed into highly valued space for its new tenants.”

Formerly the headquarters of Dollar Thrifty, the property originally was constructed in 1975, prior to the advent of commercial window systems with high-performance, low-e, insulated glazing and thermally broken framing members. Along with its non-thermally broken frames and existing 0.25-inch clear, monolithic glass with a reflective bronze film, time and weather had caused the caulking and seals to deteriorate.

Using an energy modeling tool to compare performance data between the existing and proposed window systems, Apogee Renovation forecasted yearly energy savings of $0.56 per square foot. This estimate was based on numerous data points, including improved thermal performance and reduced air infiltration by using Tubelite’s products. The proposed Tubelite system also was confirmed to meet the applied wind loads, as well as the specified air, water and structural integrity required for the building.

Based on the forecast and calculations, Tubelite’s systems were the basis of design when the project went to bid. Glazing contractor APAX Glass managed the phased window system replacement project beginning in 2017 with the East Tower. which had Key Construction as the general contractor. This was followed by the West Tower, which had APAX Glass acting as general contractor and also performing the glazing. On the adjacent three-story property, APAX Glass once again performed the glazing subcontract and LDKerns acted as the general contractor.

For the lower levels, APAX installed Tubelite’s curtainwall and Wide Stile entrance systems. On the upper stories, Tubelite’s ribbon window was inside-glazed to save time and hassle on the job site. The window system’s 2.25-inch-wide by 4.5-inch-deep aluminum framing members were thermally broken and insulated to achieve the project’s specified thermal performance, sound mitigation and condensation resistance.

Chad Hubbanks, vice president/estimator at APAX Glass stated, “This was a very successful project for APAX Glass and opportunity to show the Tulsa community what we are capable of performing. We received tremendous support from Tubelite on all three phases.”

“Without updates, older window systems can create uncomfortable and unproductive interior spaces,” explained Tubelite’s client development manager in Oklahoma, John Wiemer, CDM, CSI, CDT. “Drafts, leaks, noise, glare and uncontrolled temperature fluctuations can cause people to avoid the windows rather than enjoy them. Optimizing window systems’ performance also can help maximize floorspace and tenant satisfaction, which is especially valuable based on the important work being done by these nonprofit organizations.”

In the East Tower, these tenants are Mental Health Association Oklahoma, CAP Tulsa, LIFE Senior Services and Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. The two in the West Tower are Family & Children’s Services and Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences. The on-campus, three-story building is home to the Assistance League of Tulsa, as well as its clothing distribution and thrift store operations.

According to Tulsa World, the Anne & Henry Zarrow Foundation purchased the three-building campus for $5.9 million in 2015 and provided underwriting for the $60 million renovation project, which included the window replacement.

Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum concluded, “Legacy Plaza is creating an unmatched synergy between our nonprofit sector and the residents served by the many valuable services in Tulsa.”

East Carolina University renovates, expands football stadium with Tubelite’s doors, windows, curtainwall and storefront

East Carolina University’s (ECU‘s) first 2019-20 home football game resulted in a win and ushered in the beginning of a new era for Pirates fans at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. The recently completed, $60 million, southside renovation added 1,000 premium seats in TowneBank Tower. Pirates Club premium seat holders now are welcomed through entrances and façade systems created with Tubelite Inc.’s doors, curtainwall, ribbon windows and storefront.

The 93,000-square-foot TowneBank Tower rises nine stories and spans the top of the south-side seats between the 15-yard lines. It encompasses five founders suites, 19 standard suites, 22 loge boxes and 550 club seats. The top level of the tower also houses a new press box and game-day operations center.

Along with the TowneBank Tower, renovation of the Wards Sports Medicine Building also was part of the project scope. Expansions and modernizations were made to the Ward building’s football locker room, team meeting areas, athletics training headquarters and equipment room. A football team lounge also was added to the existing structure.

Designed by architectural firm LS3P Associates Ltd. of Wilmington, North Carolina, the Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium southside renovation project team also involved AECOM and the joint venture general contractors of TA Loving Co. and Frank L. Blum Construction Co. Early in the project’s development, Apogee Renovation consulted on high-performance glass, aluminum framing and window system solutions that included Tubelite’s products.

Apogee Renovation‘s energy modeling tools, building analysis and specification assistance services allow building owners and project teams to better determine which window systems should be considered for replacement to gain the optimal appearance, performance, long-term value and savings,” said Mary Avery, Tubelite’s vice president of marketing. “Everyone benefits when aging buildings can be upgraded to be more effective, efficient and comfortable. This is a free service offered through any of the Apogee companies including Tubelite.”

LS3P specified Tubelite‘s extruded aluminum products both on the public façade that everyone sees, and on the interior glazing systems visible only to those inside stadium. These interior framing systems provide views from TowneBank Tower to the field, as well as transparency and separation between the premium suites, loge level, press level and the main concourses.

It was a challenging project from the earliest stages of the project, according to glazing contractor Jeffreys Aluminum Group, Inc. “Before the project began, we needed to find a system that would load structurally and withstand the stacking pressures at the top/press level of the tower on the field side,” said Cameron Jeffreys, Jr., vice president.

He added, “The biggest challenge on this project was erecting the curtainwall framing and setting the glass on the southside tower off of scaffolding. And of course, time was a big concern.”

Jeffreys continued, “This was a project that we were really excited to take on due to the complexity and challenges that it presented. Tubelite was a big help in choosing and pre-engineering an inside glazed system that would withstand the forces on the press level.”

On both the interior and exterior, Jeffreys Aluminum Group installed all of Tubelite’s products: Therml=Block® Wide Stile Entrances and 900RW Series Ribbon Window, 400CW Series Curtainwall, T14000 I/O Series Thermal storefront, and E14000 Series and E14000 I/O Series Multipane Storefront Framing systems.

All of Tubelite’s architectural aluminum products on the renovated and expanded tower were finished by Linetec. The exterior curtainwall, windows and entrance systems feature a Class I clear anodize. The interior storefront systems are finished using a 70% PVDF resin-based architectural coating in a Sea Wolf light beige color. These durable finishes protect the aluminum, contribute to its low-maintenance longevity, and meet the required performance and desired appearance.

The original stadium opened in 1963 and consisted of the permanent stands on the south side and a small press box. There had not been any additions on the southside of the facility since an updated press box was erected in 1978. The last significant construction project at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium was the 2010 completion of a 7,000-seat expansion in the east end zone that brought capacity to approximately 50,000.

Demolition work began in 2017 and a groundbreaking event for the new tower was held in Jan. 2018. “We had to tear down the old to welcome the new,” said Board Chairman Kieran Shanahan at a “topping out” construction milestone celebration in July 2018.

As noted, coordinated scheduling was also critical to the project’s success. “Jeffreys holds a reputation of delivering on time, and Tubelite has always been a good partner in making that a priority,” praised Jeffreys. “Along with the reliability, Tubelite is always competitive in pricing and with material lead times. And, members of the Tubelite team are always super-helpful and there for us when needed.”

J.J. McLamb, ECU senior associate athletic director, said the renovation and stadium expansion are a testament to the Pirate slogan, “All hands on deck,” as hundreds of workers – including many ECU alumni – have been involved in the planning, development and construction of the facility.

The stadium’s grand opening was celebrated in mid-August 2018 at the beginning of the school year and football season.

“The first thing is it passes the look test,” Jon Gilbert, ECU’s director of athletics, told the North State Journal at a media tour. “I think it’s a transformational structure for our athletic department, for our football program and for our community.

Gilbert continued, “It is state-of-the-art. It is a first-class facility. And I really look at it as a community asset because we will have a lot more things in this building other than football events.” He also noted that the new facility “should enhance our gameday atmosphere and enhance our recruiting as well.”

“The TowneBank Tower and other aspects of the Southside Renovation Project are really enhancing the experience for everyone associated with East Carolina football,” added Gilbert. “We are so appreciative to Bob Aston and TowneBank for their investment in ECU Athletics.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to make this investment, not just in East Carolina football, but in the vitality of the entire region,” said G. Robert Aston, executive chairman of TowneBank. “Nothing is bigger in eastern North Carolina than Pirate football, and we know how much this spectacular addition to the stadium means to the players, coaches and fans.”
