Bluebeam Software to Exhibit and Speak About PDF-Based, Paperless Workflows at Construct Canada® Conference

Pasadena, CA: Attendees at next week’s Construct Canada conference will have several opportunities to connect with Bluebeam Software, the leading developer of PDF solutions for the design and construction industry, and learn how PDF editor Bluebeam PDF Revu® takes construction projects paperless from design, through bid, to build. In addition to exhibiting on the expo floor in booth 1032, Bluebeam will be hosting daily presentations about paperless jobsites at the show’s “Green House Under Construction” and delivering an educational session on Thursday, December 2nd at 2:30pm titled “Taking Project Workflows Digital.”

“Bluebeam PDF Revu’s smart PDF creation, markup and editing tools can take the paper out of several project workflows including design reviews, bids and estimates, Requests for Information, submittals, punchlists, backchecks and more,” said Stephani Haynes, Bluebeam Software Director of Marketing. “Bluebeam’s incredible case study results include reducing paper usage and associated costs by 85%, increasing productivity by 60%, and creating punchlists so detailed that a 90% accuracy rate is achievable at first backcheck. We encourage Construct Canada attendees to visit Bluebeam booth in 1032, attend our educational session, or view one of our ‘Green House Under Construction’ demonstrations to learn how to put Revu to work for them on their next project.”

PDF editor Bluebeam PDF Revu helps project teams go paperless by stopping paper trails before they start. The software includes plugins to AutoCAD®, Revit® and MS® Office for high-quality PDF creation. Next, Bluebeam offers Revu, a robust PDF editor built for viewing and redlining large format PDF drawings. Several industry-standard markups are available, including text, highlights, shapes with hatch patterns, CAD symbols, clouds and measurements. Advanced features enable automatic drawing comparison or manual comparisons by overlaying PDF pages, an integrated Markups list for tracking all comments on a PDF, a Tool Chest for storing custom markups, integration with Bentley® ProjectWise® and Microsoft® SharePoint® and built-in formulas for performing cost calculations. Revu also includes Bluebeam Studio™, an online collaboration tool that enables project teams to post markups to the same PDF together in real time or separately at any time.
