Walsh Receives Bluebeam eXtreme Award for Technology Innovation
Los Angeles, CA – Walsh Construction received a Bluebeam eXtreme (bXa) award for their use of Bluebeam technology during the construction of the VA Loma Linda Ambulatory Care Center. The Ambulatory Care Center is a new 345,000 SF facility that will provide primary care, dental, physical medicine and rehabilitation services to the Veteran Community.
The award was presented at the fourth annual Bluebeam eXtreme Awards in Los Angeles, California, in conjunction with Bluebeam® Software’s 2016 Bluebeam eXtreme® Conference. The eXtreme awards recognize innovative project teams from across the United States that are utilizing Bluebeam solutions to deliver project innovations.
“Bluebeam Revu was a critical tool for drawing management on the Ambulatory Care Center project,” says Tom Caplis, Walsh’s Vice President of Healthcare. “The combination of people, process, and this technology not only enabled us to overcome project challenges, but it also paved the way for significant time savings, clarity in communication, and client satisfaction.”
Nearly every aspect of Walsh’s Quality Program for the Ambulatory Care Center was built surrounding Bluebeam Revu. Walsh used page label, markups, and sets features, and also deployed a custom stamp that stored all drawing data required to keep team members properly updated. With each major milestone on the project, inspections were performed with custom toolchests resulting in clear communications and substantial time saved.
After developing this system on several smaller healthcare projects across the county, a project of this size and complexity has proven that a standard, flexible drawing management system can be deployed across the entire healthcare business group.
