Top General Contractor Swinerton Leverages the Flexibility of Bluebeam® Revu® to Digitize Communication Across Multiple Regions and Projects

The construction industry has traditionally relied on paper-based processes to collect, manage and organize project documents including plans, shop drawings, RFIs, and punchlists. Managing these documents is extremely time-consuming. Documents must be constantly updated with changes and filed properly to ensure they can be easily accessed on a moment's notice to clarify jobsite questions. Additionally, documents are frequently viewed and commented on by multiple project team members, often complicating project tracking and accountability.

Typically, two or three project team members were responsible for managing these printed document sets. When plans required revision, they would be redlined by hand. Revised documents would be printed and then slip-sheeted into the current set of plan documents, with notes transcribed onto duplicates to be distributed to project partners. Finally, additional documents such as RFIs would be placed in binders for storage.
