Bluebeam Invests in Associated Schools of Construction Student Competition
Bluebeam Software, a developer of PDF-based markup, measurement and collaboration solutions for design, construction and other technical professionals, exhibited at the 27th Annual Associated Schools of Construction (ASC) Student Competition and Construction Management Conference in Sparks, N.V.
ASC, an association dedicated to promoting excellence in construction education, is becoming an increasingly important resource contributing to the development of Bluebeam’s academic outreach program.
While Bluebeam attended the conference to show students and educational professionals how the company’s flagship solution, Revu, streamlines project communication, company representatives learned more about the challenges that construction management students and academic professionals face.
Bluebeam attributes a sharp increase in students and professors inquiring about Revu licenses for school labs and competitions to a renewed commitment by institutions to engage with the industry, define the essential skills graduates will need to be competitive and to provide the critical tools that will enhance those skills.
The ASC Competition provides university students with the unique and highly competitive opportunity to partner with top design and construction firms. Student teams apply their skills in solving the types of problems that they would face during the bidding and procurement phases of real-world construction projects.
In addition to providing Revu licenses for student competitions, Bluebeam is investing in the future of the industry by furnishing university labs with Revu licenses, offering hands-on training and providing opportunities for Revu to be incorporated into the curriculum.
