How Swiss civil engineers saved money and time with Bluebeam Revu

Ribuna, a civil engineering firm in Switzerland’s Interlaken, has rationalised its document management by decentralising and digitising planning and project collaborations with Bluebeam Revu.

Andreas Blatter, managing director at Ribuna, said that with Bluebeam Revu, the company not only achieved a digital way of enabling fast, structured planning and coordination but saves paper and money.

“Now we print out plans only if we really need to. Depending on the project’s complexity, I estimate we have reduced the amount of paper we use by between 20% and 50%,” Blatter said in the Bluebeam case study.

For instance, Ribuna was tasked with refurbishing the Oberried am Brienzersee village rail station mid-2020 during Covid-19, connecting Interlaken, Lucerne and Engelberg, with the CHF10 million (£8.1m) construction set to conclude in 2022.

Moving to Revu meant that the project could continue via enhanced digital collaboration both on and off site despite the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in spring 2020.

“Our project partners send us so many sheet sets and they all use their own computer-aided design (CAD) or building information modelling (BIM) software. Using Revu means we can use a standardised PDF data set to check the plans and, for example, draw up service specifications for construction service tenders,” Blatter said.

Ribuna managed to save time reviewing and coordinating designs while maintaining flexibility when processing PDF data sets. Additionally, minimal error rates were experienced as a result of adopting more efficient digital workflows and document management.

With Revu, the company can create routines for planning approvals from the client or specialist planners, track comments, annotate documents, and complete design reviews, according to Bluebeam.
