Enhance your Quantity Takeoffs with Revu®
Precision is everything for estimators. Accurate Quantity Takeoffs are a crucial early step for any contract, and Bluebeam Revu has long been great for estimators performing Quantity Takeoffs.
Quantity Takeoffs Tips & Tricks:
1 – Calibrate the PDF
Don’t rely on the drawings to be in proper scale. This process ensures that your measurements are accurate.
2 – Create Custom Tool Sets
Align all project collaborators by creating and deploying a tool set for takeoffs that can be used and standardised throughout your company and on future projects.
3. Use Custom Columns
Why not have an immediate cost breakdown? Columns in the Markups List are highly customisable. With values plugged into your Custom Columns, users can instantly see the materials and price estimates.
4 – Use VisualSearch
Using this feature, you can find the total count of light fixtures or electrical outlets quickly within your entire bid package by using Revu to search for a visual cue or object.
