How Bluebeam's Construction Takeoff Software Revolutionises the Way You Estimate and Build?

Accurate quantity takeoffs and estimations are critical for competitive bidding and successful project management. Sticking to mainstream and outdated practices and tools brings forth several issues that negatively impact the overall construction budget and bid-winning ratio, including:

  • Frequent errors and rework due to inaccurate measurements.
  • Inefficient communication and sharing of critical measurement data.
  • Difficulty in capturing the full scope of a project efficiently.

Revolutionise Traditional Workflows with Bluebeam Revu

Bluebeam Revu, the industry-leading construction takeoff software, is specifically designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of quantity takeoffs and estimations. These capabilities help contractors and estimators craft more winning bids. It enables:

  • Capturing a project's true scope with precision, purpose-built measurement tools for accurate and dynamic measurements.
  • Use the Dynamic Fill feature to measure the area and volume of irregular regions or shapes in your construction drawings.
  • Use Visual Search to count similar objects on construction drawings without manually going through comprehensive documents.
  • Ensuring quick, precise measurements and accumulating totals directly on the construction PDFs
  • Creating customisable and shareable tool sets to mark up and measure, standardising the estimation process.

Seamless Collaboration, Measurements, & Annotation

Bluebeam's construction takeoff software, Bluebeam Revu, is not only known for revolutionising measurements and estimates but also changed the way data is managed and shared among AEC teams. The exceptional features that lead to better outcomes in the bidding and estimation process include:
