Award-winning collaboration software developer Bluebeam has become the first to join GCR’s global content partnership network.
Bluebeam is the creator of Bluebeam Revu, a leading digital tool that connects projects and teams, helping design and construction professionals.
Over 1.3 million construction professionals throughout the world use Revu. In the US, Bluebeam is a critical partner for the majority of top AEC firms. Globally, it is rapidly expanding with customers in 130 countries.
In 2014, Bluebeam joined Nemetschek in a $100m acquisition, which allows the company to connect with even more AEC professionals around the world.
In November last year, the Pasadena, CA-headquartered firm formed a Munich subsidiary to serve customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.Â
In July it joined Aecom in helping to digitise the design review process of California’s Division of the State Architect.Â Â
The partnership lets GCR share insights from Bluebeam’s experience and expertise, and expands GCR’s editorial reach to new audiences. By invitation, GCR partners with global organisations helping construction teams and professionals excel worldwide.
Bluebeam’s UK manager James Chambers said: "We’re delighted to collaborate with GCR on global content this year because it complements our approach to encourage best practices throughout the construction industry.
"Through Bluebeam’s continuing international expansion, we want to bring digital transformation to the mainstream to improve collaboration and maximise productivity. It’s a pleasure to work with a publication that is connecting the built environment worldwide to digital solutions and innovations that will help drive it forward."
GCR editor Rod Sweet commented: "Bluebeam is going places and so are we. The future of construction is digital, so we’re excited to welcome Bluebeam to our global content partner network. It helps us expand our mission to deliver fresh and informative content to our growing readership around the world."
