As global construction projects continue to grow and evolve, the need for better collaboration in construction has never been more crucial. In building design and construction projects, you’re likely to bring together a large number of diverse disciplines, many of whom haven’t worked together before, emphasising a necessity to integrate complex information, procedures and systems.
Despite this, stakeholders within the UK construction and AEC industry often note an element of fragmentation and inefficiency, leading to poor and inconsistent procurement practices and an overall loss of time, money and effort.
This post aims to highlight how Bluebeam Revu 2019 can improve collaboration in construction for your project managers and their teams. 

With Bluebeam, You Can Streamline Processes

Bluebeam Revu 2019 prides itself on its ability to help project teams achieve a 90% completion rate on first back check, thanks to its streamlining process.
For example, it’s common for contractors to use paper drawings and handwritten notes on a site inspection. With Revu 2019, contractors working on site inspections can indicate issues by adding markups to a PDF drawing, along with photos and videos for further visual clarity.
This can then be shared amongst relevant stakeholders, who will update markup statuses once they have been fixed.
That’s just one example of how processes can be streamlined for your project managers’ teams, improving cross-team collaboration.

Save Time With Bluebeam’s Deployment Tool

The Revu 2019 software has various features that help project teams to save valuable time.
The enterprise-ready configuration tool will enable project managers to take control of deployment across their team. This tool allows users to clearly see who is doing what, improving overall collaboration.
Historically, finding the most efficient deployment method can be a challenge for large organisations and the deployment tool will aid this.
Bluebeam’s cloud-based document management facilities also allow your project managers’ teams to access relevant materials, no matter where they’re based-with or without an internet connection. Not only is this highly economical, but it ensures that collaboration can be carried out efficiently, regardless of individuals’ location.

Changing The Meaning of ‘Collaboration’ In Construction

The most preferred method for communication within construction and AEC is via email and a file-sharing platform, where necessary. However, one of the main reasons why errors are made, and schedules get snagged is because of ‘less than perfect’ communication.
We’re all aware of how easy it is to lose track of documents through email. With Revu, project manager’s teams can work from the most recent version of the document, with the ability to track whether an issue has been resolved or not. Users can collaborate in real time on the same document, no matter where they are in the world, and all stakeholders can access the same plans from a tablet, mobile or a computer.
By changing the definition of ‘collaboration’, Bluebeam has the ability to minimise instances of confusion, error, and in some cases, rework.

The Digital Workplace In Construction

There’s never been a better time to promote a digital workplace within the construction and AEC industry. Your project managers use technology in their personal lives, from ordering groceries to booking holidays.
People have come to expect intuitive navigation and ease of customisation in the applications and software that they use on a daily basis, which makes it the perfect time to consider the digital software that’s built to make your work-life easier.
