777 Aviation

CRL as Manufacturers

El Segundo has evolved into a modern and diverse business community. In step with the city’s transformation, renowned architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) reimagined the 777 Aviation building to reflect the needs and culture of today’s workspaces.

SOM leveraged the benefits of glass throughout the building to optimize daylight diffusion, thermal performance, and aesthetics. Integrating a grand atrium with a series of large-scale skylights; removing concrete shear walls; and incorporating fenestration systems that satisfied thermal performance requirements without compromising the design intent, all played key roles.

C.R. Laurence manufactured custom glazing systems to help meet the project’s various needs. The first floor facade and upper level terrace areas incorporate the company’s Series 4500SG Structural Silicone Glazed Curtain Wall. The system utilizes polyurethane thermal breaks and injection-molded thermoplastic connectors that join interior and exterior members to achieve total thermal isolation.

The upgraded envelope also features C.R. Laurence’s Entice Entrance System. The system features ultra-narrow 1-1/8" vertical stiles that deliver a striking all-glass aesthetic while providing U–factors as low as 0.43. In addition, it has the unique ability to support handle hardware on 1" insulating glass using proprietary through-glass fittings.

Interior glass entrances incorporate DRS Door Rails with floating headers and low-profile sidelite channels that produce clean glass spans. DRS Door Rails are paired with Blumcraft Panic Handles, which offer an elegant tubular design.

The grand atrium at 777 Aviation’s core is flanked by walkways lined with CRL’s GRS TAPER-LOC Glass Railing System. The railing system is ICC-ES approved and complies with 2015 IBC updates to ensure codes are met.
