Berry, which has deployed Bluebeam PDF Revu to 160 users, is using Bluebeam to implement a paperless process standardized on PDF for reviewing building designs. By reducing paper usage on building projects, Berry is increasing sustainable business practices and eligibility for LEED® points from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).
“Bluebeam has taken us a long way toward achieving a paperless environment,” said Kevin Healey P.E., project executive at William A. Berry & Son, Inc. “On our initial project launch, we reduced our paper usage enough to achieve an 80 percent savings on printing and courier expenses.”
Bluebeam helped Berry reduce paper consumption so significantly that the firm is applying for a LEED Innovation in Design point. The Innovation in Design point honors green builders for employing creative solutions on green building projects. LEED points are required for a building to attain LEED Certification, a prestigious designation granted by the USGBC to the nation’s most sustainable structures.
“We are excited that William A. Berry & Son, Inc. has standardized on Bluebeam PDF Revu,” said Richard Lee, President and CEO of Bluebeam Software. “Their impressive results – an 80 percent reduction in paper usage – demonstrates the value that Bluebeam PDF Revu provides to a project, both in terms of sustainability and cost reduction.”
