Building Berkeley

If you love all things architecture, our upcoming Arts & Culture Talk may interest you!

Building Berkeley:  Bernard Maybeck, John Galen Howard, Julia Morgan & the UC Berkeley Campus

Join us to welcome Professor Margaretta Lovell, Professor of the History of Art, as a speaker in our Arts and Culture series.

How many times have we walked the UC Berkeley campus, usually without even thinking about the history of the buildings that surround us?

Here are a few great things Margaretta will be speaking about with all of us.

In what ways was the campus determined by the geography of Berkeley?

How many architects submitted plans for the UC campus?

What are the UC buildings that Julia Morgan designed?

What was the original plan for all of the floors of the Campanile?

Get the answers to all of these questions and many more at our Arts & Culture Talk on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 6pm.  Tickets available on Eventbrite.

BCC Members:  $5 | Non-Members: $10

Here is a peek into a typical Wednesday.

9am

Arrive at work and grab a cup of coffee to get ready for a busy day.

9:15am

Begin checking voicemail and email from the night before.  It could be anything from a client booking a site tour to checking dates for a wedding or special event.

11am

Compile the list of clients needing parking in the BCC lot that week and correspond with the Front Desk to ensure places are reserved accordingly.

11:30am

It’s time for Lunch!  Chef Alaun and his Team prepare delicious and unique lunches for all of the BCC Team Members.

12pm

Voicemail and email check-in.  It is always great to hear from prospective new clients.

1pm

Prepare for the BEO (Banquet Event Order) meeting.  Various departments come together and all get on the same page for upcoming meetings & events.

2pm

BEO Meeting.  It is great to have input from everyone – Events, Banquets, Kitchen & Maintenance share important details and action items.

3pm

Walk down to the bake shop to get a yummy treat to serenade a Team Member for their birthday.  It is always fun to gather a group and track down the birthday girl or guy.
