Creating Smart PDFs to resolve complex site conditions

The goal of the session is to provide an insightful experience that is both educational and inspirational. Through the lens of a large, complex project, the talk will focus on the use of various technologies, including software such as Bluebeam, to explore their ability to shape a new industry standard. Taking a basic PDF, today’s most commonly used drawing format, and manipulating through technology, architects can create smart tools that vastly improve workflows, better connect and enhance quality & productivity and are much more responsive to site conditions.
The session will consist of one-hour presentation showing examples for each item described in the Program Outline. The positive aspects of each approach will be highlighted. Upon leaving the room, each participant will be ready to apply some of the techniques presented with tools already available to them.
