Electrical Estimators -  Responsible for management of document submittal standards and estimating practices within the company.

The estimator is an essential resource for the project manager in providing estimating services for difficult challenges such as changes of scope and price differences due to different construction practices or products.

This course teaches how to:

  • Set up and manage a standard set of tool set and document access privileges through the use of profiles for the company. (ie Fit out electrician versus base bldg electrician, versus commissioning specialist)
  • Use of Revu Extreme tools such as batch hyperlink and Document Bates numbering to quickly manage large document sets (link Single line to floorplan, shop drawings to lighting schedules, ect)
  • Set up an manage sophisticated Bluebeam document Sets that allowed efficient execution of changes through document revisions without an endless chain of email threads and attachments.


Electrical Project Managers - Responsible for preliminary budgets and initial discussions of project scope.

  • Create preliminary documents quickly before detailed floor plans may be available. Coordinate the use of existing older blueprints towards giving an engineering budget without excessive time developing AutoCAD generated floor plans where a budget is not already in place.
  • Create quick new layouts of lighting and T-bar grids, distribution equipment footprints, based on wither new or existing older blueprints
  • Creation of digital submittals through the development of smart dashboards.


Electrical Engineers - Responsible for additional deliverables in addition to design services such as field quality assurance quality check inspections, preliminary budgets and initial discussions of project scope.

This course teaches how to:

  • Set up and manage concurrent workflow practices that firewall sensitive information such as contract documents, engineering reports with legal consequences, and audit trails meeting stringent record keeping as defined by the financial and government institutions.
  • Carry out math models such as preliminary lumens/ft2 calculations, watt’s/ft2 using custom columns and Bluebeam/MS Excel integration.
  • Issue documents with digital signatures and authentication tools such as encryption and public private passwords.


WHO should attend


  • Electrical Engineers
