777 Aviation

Originally designed in 1968 by famed Los Angeles modernist architect Craig Ellwood,

777 Aviation is a newly reimagined and renovated 318,182 square-foot, 3-story, glass and steel structure.

Before it became a true classic reborn, it needed significant rehabilitation. The Campbell team was invited to be a consultant on the window portion of the scope.

03. What We Did

Window Film Retrofit

Case Studies: 777 Aviation

Our Challenges

The existing single pane glass needed to be brought up to today’s standards in terms of energy efficiency and safety.

California energy efficiency legislation requires that the stringent Title 24 standards be met, and safety codes required the annealed glass be turned into safety glass.

Project Details

777 South Aviation Blvd., El Segundo CA 90245

Type of Film:
3M Ultra Prestige S70

Square Feet of Glass Covered:

Installation Time:
37 days (including removal of 21,860 sq. ft. of very old existing film)

Payback Period:
2.8 years

3M Dealer:
Campbell Window Film

Case Studies: 777 Aviation

Our Solution

Both concerns were addressed using 3M’s Ultra Prestige Series solar security window film, which allowed the owners to keep the original glass. The high-performance film is thicker than a normal window film yet contains the same heat blocking technology 3M is known for.

The two technologies are combined into a single layer that helped with LEED points by eliminating the need to put all of the original glass in a landfill. The best part, however, is the significant cost savings. Window film is approximately seven times less expensive than a full re-glazing scope.
