No matter the size, every construction project has their own unique characteristics and logistics that come with it. But one thing is certain, every project has a specific set of construction documents that include; contracts, drawings, specifications and other important information. To guarantee the overall success of the project, companies must find ways to be the most effective and efficient to reach their specific goals. Using a technological software such as Bluebeam allows companies to excel in what they do best. Using Bluebeam as their primary PDF viewer on construction projects allows them to approach their project with a positive mindset. By going paperless, it not only saves space on the jobsite but allows the company to be more organized. Especially in commercial construction where projects are much larger, the use of Bluebeam allows all documents to be kept on one software. In this case study, we will focus on a specific company that once did not implement the use of Bluebeam technology but now currently does. From taking advantage of this software we learn that it allows for effective project management within the company as well as gives everyone on the project team access to important documents at the touch of a button.
