The "VROOM" virtual-reality room makes construction projects easy to understand

Aarsleff Ground Engineering used the technology to create their proprietary "VROOM" virtual-reality room to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills of its estimators and engineers.
As virtual reality tech continues to mature, the construction industry is adopting and adapting it to reduce rework, improve safety, lower labor costs, meet timelines, resolve issues faster, and increase quality.

Aarsleff Ground Engineering, a provider of ground engineering, sheet piling, and geotechnical solutions, used the technology to create their proprietary "VROOM" virtual-reality room to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills of its estimators and engineers. Currently, the room allows "staff to visit project sites, observe site access points to determine appropriate rig type and see the surrounding environment before ever having to step foot on site."
According to Aarsleff, "the customer's confidence in the product should increase, as should they feel part of its production process, new employees can benefit from an engaging induction and existing staff members can be inspired by exemplary experiences within the workplace."

The company also wants to roll out the virtual application at careers fairs and university shows, to increase interest in construction. "Students and aspiring engineers will be able to walk around on an Aarsleff site," Aarsleff's Managing Director Kevin Hague said, "helping them to understand several ground engineering disciplines and learn about the machinery operated on site – all whilst in a safe and engaging way."

Right now, Aarsleff is focusing on using the technology to bring a new dimension into its estimating process, but will also look into using it for company marketing, health and safety inductions, site training and other applications in the near future.
