The Bechtel Room
At the far end of the Toll Room, a wall of sliding walnut panels separates it from the Bechtel Conference Room. When the panels are closed, the conference room is perfect for board meetings or as a breakout room, and is equipped with a conference phone. A 22-foot wood table, surrounded by blue leather conference chairs, dominates the space. A wall of glass offers natural light and a view of the patio while another wall enhances the room with a glass case of Cal memoribilia. The conference room is also well-suited to a buffet setup.
