In honor of Steel Day 2011, we wanted to highlight one of our newest cases studies from Rowecord Engineering, a major steel contractor in the UK that provides first-class design, engineering manufacture, treatment and erection services for steel structures.
Prior to finding Bluebeam, Rowecord had been using Adobe Distiller for high-volume PDF creation and Adobe Acrobat for end user PDF editing and markup. However, this solution was proving to be too costly to maintain, so Rowecord’s Project Leader decided to begin the search for a new PDF solution. His main search criteria included a solution that provided end users with easy-to-use PDF annotation and editing tools, the ability to covert high volumes of Windows files to PDF, and affordable pricing. Enter Bluebeam.
Rowecord now uses Bluebeam Q, Bluebeam’s server-based solution, to automatically create a high volume of PDFs from BIM applications, mainly Tekla Structures, and Bluebeam PDF Revu for marking up PDFs electronically with comments, highlights, shapes and symbols.

Happy Steel Day!
