Bluebeam to Show ‘Greenbuild Nation’ how Global Teams are Digitizing Project Communication to Work Paperlessly
PASADENA, Calif. & PHILADELPHIA — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 20, 2013 — Design and construction professionals attending the 2013 Greenbuild Conference and Expo will have the opportunity to see how project teams throughout the US and abroad are leveraging Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF-based markup, measurement and collaboration solutions, to take project communication digital. Bluebeam will be demonstrating how the power of flagship solution, Revu®, combined with integrated cloud collaboration solution, Bluebeam Studio™, speeds up communication, increases productivity and reduces the risk of costly miscommunication.
“Bluebeam’s innovative collaboration solutions are enabling design and construction teams to access, manage and share the information they need anywhere, anytime,” said Bluebeam’s Director of Account Services, Kristine Hopkins. “Revu is being used by the industry’s top building teams to increase productivity by over 60%, to open the doors of the world’s largest buildings faster and to further the ‘Greenbuild Nation’ cause by using green technologies.”
Firms such as Skanska, one of the world’s largest international construction and project development groups, are deploying Bluebeam’s document-centric collaboration technologies to go paperless and streamline workflows. Skanska’s largest project to date, the New Karolinska Solna Hospital (NKS) in Stockholm, Sweden, is a $2 billion massive build that will be the size of twenty-four skyscrapers. The project is expected to generate 40,000 drawings by the 2017 completion date. Using Revu, the almost 2,000 member project team is able to quickly access and manage up-to-date information digitally, electronically annotate drawings, receive real-time feedback and bring information to the field, without needing to print.
“Over the years Skanska has seen Revu deliver impressive results on projects worldwide, but what we are seeing on NKS is that Revu is easily scaled to take even the largest, most document-intensive projects digital,” said Swaroop Kadur, Senior Project Engineer on the NKS Project. “Given that this project has tens of thousands of drawings and documents, Revu has accomplished an impressive feat by consistently enabling our contractors to find the information they need in just minutes.”
The 2013 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo is taking place November 20th and November 21st at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Bluebeam will be exhibiting in booth #2337 to demonstrate how Revu is streamlining workflows and enabling project teams to design better, faster and paperlessly.
