This past weekend, engineering, design and construction professionals from all over the U.S. joined Bluebeam for its second annual International Rally Conference (IRC) at the majestic Salish Lodge and Spa just outside of Seattle, Washington. As expected, this year’s conference offered a rare learning experience, where attendees learned best practices for using Bluebeam Revu while also finding some time for a little competitive racing.
Day one was all about Revu with educational sessions led by Bluebeam’s top engineers as well as a number of real-world case studies from Bluebeam power users and industry experts, including Turner Construction Company, McCarthy Building Companies, Mortenson Construction, Zachry Construction Corporation, and Foster Wheeler Energy Limited. On day two, we turned it up a notch by treating many of our guests to a rally car racing experience at the DirtFish Rally School. A number of racers went in, but only one would exit the 2012 Bluebeam Rally Champion.
Here’s a quick look at what went down:
Welcome to IRC 2012!
One of the many spectacular views from the Salish Lodge & Spa.
Attendees listen as Bluebeam’s CEO and President, Richard Lee, opens the conference with his keynote address where he announced unlimited file storage for Bluebeam Studio projects.
Terriann Nohilly shows attendees how Turner Construction Company combined the power of Bluebeam® Revu® and SharePoint to create a system that is making it faster and easier for team members to access project documents and information during the expansion of the San Diego Airport T2W.
Wow, can the Salish Lodge get any better. Just another spectacular view.
Bluebeam’s Andrew Gaer and Paul Boston demonstrate how attendees can prepare their next bid as much as 70% faster using Revu’s takeoff and estimation tools.
Lunch break! Time to mingle people.
Zachry Construction Corporation’s Todd Sutton discusses how to leverage the mobility of Revu iPad, Bluebeam Revu and Bluebeam Studio to track issues in the field and remotely monitor a project’s status in real time.
Omar Sheikh of Foster Wheeler demonstrates how Revu can easily be integrated into existing workflows and systems.
