Pioneer Plaza Aesthetics Regained
SituationWhen the local Vista by LLumar dealer passed the imposing Pioneer Plaza office building in downtown Honolulu, he was dismayed by the appearance of the buildings’ two highest floors. These floors housed the prestigious Plaza Club, a fashionable meeting place where the city’s business leaders got together for dining and meetings. The windows on the two top floors exhibited a worn, distorted and purple film covering which was clearly the worse for wear. Moreover, the appearance of these floors went a long way in destroying the otherwise neat, clean, clear-cut total look of the building.
SolutionAction was taken to remove this eyesore! The dealer made a cold call to the club manager with the proposal that Vista solar control window film would not only transform the whole building’s appearance but would bring remarkable improvements to the comfort and ambiance within the club. After a formal meeting, an analysis of the solar environment and a juxtaposed comparison of Vista and other competitors’ installed products was performed. It was decided that the most suitable film to install was Vista by LLumar Luminance V28, a film which improves and enhances the beautiful views that characterize the Plaza Club by cutting harsh glare. The Luminance film blocked more than 99 percent ultraviolet rays, helping protect against premature fading* and reduced the amount of the sun’s heat and glare which pass through untreated glass. When installed Vista Luminance lowers the sun’s heat by 58 percent and cuts down sun glare by 67 percent. The dealer installed 4,850 square feet of film without interfering with the normal daily activities of the Club.
The members are now able to enjoy the club facilities in a cool glare-free environment with expansive panoramic views of the city and the Pacific Ocean.
The building executives are so pleased with the exterior look of the Plaza Club floors and the comfort benefits brought by Vista Luminance that a decision was made to remove the existing film from all of the windows in the rest of the building (22 floors) and replace it with Vista V28, an additional 27,600 square feet of installation.
