Do you found it is tough to performing Quantity Takeoff on numerous PDF drawings?

And it is also not easy to measure the objects with shapes of curves and twists?

Here we have a case study from a Consultancy firm called KCI Management Consultancy Limited, sharing how Bluebeam Revu can help on their daily jobs on Quantity Takeoff.

Revu 2019 Prompt to Scale

Quantity Takeoff

With a complex drawing, performing quantity takeoffs requires high level of accuracy. KCL mentioned several tools provided by Bluebeam® Revu® that were particularly useful for their daily workflow, including calibration, snapping, multiple scale viewports, conversion of lines to arcs, counting, markup list and export function.

The calibrating function allowed KCI to determine the scale of the drawing in PDF, enabling accurate measurements. In addition, Revu® allowed KCI to store multiple scales in the same document, including storing X and Y scales separately, which reduced error in calculations and measurements.

Snapping is favorable to making precise and accurate measurements. The Grid and snap-to-grid functionality aided precise placement and calculation of markups.

With their project and large drawing sets, KCI was able to effectively use the counting tool to tally up different items within the drawings with ease, including windows, doors, lights, etc.

Benefits

30% time savings in Quantity Takeoff

Easy tracking locations of markups

Increase efficiency and accuracy with precise tools

Implementation

The implementation for Bluebeam® Revu® was relatively seamless for KCI. The simple installation allows KCI to get started right away after acquiring the licenses. They also mentioned that the learning curve for Revu® was relatively low, and the extensive resources provided online also assisted them in their early adoption.

Right now, all the new on-boarding members of KCI have started using Revu® from day 1 with ease. The new members of KCI were particularly impressed how easy it was to find all the functions that Revu® has to offer from their tool chest once they get used to the interface.

KCI has purchased licenses of Revu® over 2 years ago. Since then, they have continually used Revu® with no plans to seek out other solutions.
