Bluebeam Software Invests in the Advancement of Design and Construction Education at the Associated Schools of Construction 27th Annual Student Competition

This week, Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF-based markup, measurement and collaboration solutions for design, construction and other technical professionals, is exhibiting at the 27th Annual Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Student Competition and Construction Management Conference in Sparks, NV. ASC, an association dedicated to promoting excellence in construction education, is becoming an increasingly important resource contributing to the development of Bluebeam’s academic outreach program.

While Bluebeam is attending the conference to show students and educational professionals how the company’s flagship solution, Revu®, streamlines project communication, company representatives will also be looking to learn more about the challenges that construction management students and academic professionals face. Bluebeam attributes a sharp increase in students and professors inquiring about Revu licenses for school labs and competitions to a renewed commitment by institutions to engage with the industry, define the essential skills graduates will need to be competitive and to provide the critical tools that will enhance those skills.

The ASC Competition provides university students with the unique and highly competitive opportunity to partner with top design and construction firms. Student teams apply their skills in solving the types of problems that they would face during the bidding and procurement phases of real-world construction projects.

“During the 2013 Associated Schools of Construction competition, my team was able to simultaneously and in real time work on marking up the construction drawings with all of the amazing features in Bluebeam Revu,” says Boris Morales, a San Diego State University student. “In this competition, time is very limited; therefore, Bluebeam Revu was an integral part of our team securing 2nd place.”

“More and more students are requesting Revu to gain a competitive edge in competitions like ASC’s,” says Sasha Reed, Director of Strategic Alliances at Bluebeam, “and we’re inspired when we hear from educators who want to incorporate Revu into their curriculum so that their students can push the limits of project communication when they graduate into the workforce.”

In addition to providing Revu licenses for student competitions, Bluebeam is investing in the future of the industry by furnishing university labs with Revu licenses, offering hands-on training and providing opportunities for Revu to be incorporated into the curriculum.

“I was blown away with what Bluebeam Revu could do when our group went through the training—so much more than Acrobat ever did!” says Clark Cory, Associate Professor of Computer Graphics Technology - BIM Specialty at Purdue University. “I am still experimenting with most of the features, but anticipate utilizing 3D PDFs soon in coursework! Revu is simply amazing!”

Bluebeam will be showing students and education professionals how Revu is enabling project teams to communicate better at booth #503 in the Rose Foyer of the John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino and Resort in Sparks, NV from Thursday, February 6 through Saturday, February 8.
