Cost estimating specialist, Innovator, Software developer

Since December 2021, I have developed more than a dozen of simpler programs that save time for the employees of STRABAG every day.

1. AutoFill – a program that quickly estimates the cost of projects within seconds from data collected from previously finished or estimated projects.

2. Translathor – tool to quickly and precisely translate large quantities of data in excel files. Its capacity is up to 2 million characters per minute or 600 pages per minute. It may translate between 26 languages depending on the user’s needs.

3. AList Complete solution – designed as an Excel Add-in using C# and VBA languages to convert data structures between predefined Excel files and XML files. Quickening the transfer of data between Arriba iTWO XML data structure and STRABAG’s Excel file price lists for the Czech and Slovak republics, which I had negotiated and designed with STRABAG’s group companies representatives. Furthermore, the tool is capable of converting national-wise used construction price catalogues (URS, OTSKP) within a couple of minutes to make the files ready to import as bills of quantities or price estimations or other XML structure files recognized by Arriba iTWO importers for modules.

4. StockChecker – with the volatility of the price of electricity on a stock market, I have developed a tool that tracks the price of several commodities on the non-wide-public stock market by the largest Czech Energy company ČEZ.

5. Connector of billing modules for large-scale projects that removes the necessity to manually enter data into two separate programs, ASPE (required program to use by the Czech government) and then to Arriba iTWO (STRABAG’s mandatory project management program) Fastening the process to take just half an hour instead of a whole day.

6. Other algorithms to convert data from one format to another (XML, JSON, Excel Files, data scraping)
