Real World Estimating with Bluebeam  – Project Setup & Control

Bluebeam Revu is a takeoff & estimating package that should be in the toolkit of every AEC firm. No matter how powerful a software system is, unless your staff has a full understanding of how to set up and control your project files effectively, you’ll never see the increased efficiency and cost savings that you hope it brings. This course shows users in the design and construction world a practical and simple approach to structuring their projects in Bluebeam Revu for maximum estimating efficiency. If you, or your staff, use Bluebeam but don’t feel you’re getting the most out of your software investment, then this course is exactly what you need!

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses. 

NOTE: This class is for Bluebeam Revu for PC, not the iPad. Instructor will be using Bluebeam Revu eXtreme 2019 and some tools shown may not be available in Revu Standard or CAD. Looking for this class in Bluebeam Revu 2017 or 2018? Contact us to make arrangements.
