We have a secured pdf that opens in 10 or less seconds on our local machines, but takes 1-2 minutes to open on the server.  The size is not the issue, as larger ones open much faster.

From my experiences, I'd guess that a slow PDF is usually to do with page formatting issues e.g. images that are so big that they go over the page border.  I notice that the Master Bedroom has no border at the end of the line, so maybe something is stretching there.  Also, in geberal, all of the borders are very close to the edges and may be pushing the boundaries.  Have you created the PDF or is someone else's that you're just viewing?  Could you try squishing everything, at least just to see if it's still slow?

Someone else created it.  They also had the same file on another server and it worked fine there.  It seems to only be an issue on our server, which constantly runs at just around 10%.
