AIB Webinar: Post COVID Business Models: How do you pivot?

Hindsight is 20/20… but instead of spending our time looking back on what we could have done differently, now is the time to look forward at what we can do. Which is why we have put together a panel of industry experts to speak on pivoting your business model for future success.

With the world changing rapidly around us, businesses have had to make decisions quickly to adapt and pivot their business models to stay relevant and continue providing value to their customers. Changing business models and adapting your value proposition is a tough formula to get right, especially in the high-pressure environments we’re experiencing now.

After such a positive response to our Crisis Leadership webinar, we’re pleased to have done another free one-hour webinar on ‘Post COVID business models – how to pivot?’

Facilitated by AIB academic Dr Alicia Stanway, with speakers Adelaide Festival Centre CEO Douglas Gautier, AUSPECC Vice-Chair Christopher Findlay, Healthcare Consultant Paul Richard, i4 Design owner Sarah Ryding and AIB CEO Paul Wappett.

Open BIM COVID-19: Creating a bill of quantities for the COVID-19 safety plan

The application allows us to obtain the cost of protection materials against COVID-19. In this video we will show an example of a bill of quantities of these items for a town council.
We click on the bill of quantities tab.

We establish the general data such as the currency or the percentage of contingencies and industrial profit. We create a database with the prices of the materials. In the example, we estimate that the cost of a box of masks is €45, gloves €16 and €160m² for a methacrylate separator.

We can save this database and use it for other projects. We create the mapping of the BIM model. The program will create the automatic quantities of all the materials of the job and to which we will assign the corresponding price from our database.

We update the quantities and the program calculates and completes the details of the bill of quantities. This allows us to obtain bill of quantities reports, as well as the total cost of all the materials in our COVID-19 safety plan.
