Step onto the Virtual Rooftop

VR Learning for Roofers with Plåt&Ventbyrån

Immersive VR for future roofers

Roofers have a unique job. They stand high above the city, seeing views most of us never do. But it’s hard to get young people excited about this job if they can’t experience that view for themselves.

Plåt & Ventbyråns wanted to show young people what it’s like to be a roofer. They tried using fairs and expos, but it just wasn’t the same as actually being on a roof. So, we had an idea: if we can’t take them to the rooftops, why not bring the rooftops to them? We thought of using Virtual Reality to give them a real feel for the job, making it fun and engaging at the same time.

The Challenges We Encountered

The VR experience was designed to be as close to reality as possible. Further, we knew that many users would be unfamiliar with virtual reality. As part of the design process, we took a user-centric approach. The experience begins with a user-friendly tutorial intended to help users become familiar with virtual reality. It is now possible for every user, whether they are a VR novice or an experienced roofer, to easily grasp the environment, interact seamlessly, and truly immerse themselves in the world of a roofer.

The experience was also designed to make users feel as if they were on a roof during the experience. Mixing 3D and real world photography we managed to create an environment that really allows the user to feel immersed. When you are atop the building at the construction site and look out at the view, you see a real 360-photo of the Stockholm skyline. Another way we ensured realism throughout the experience was that we 3D-scanned real-life roofing tools to get accurate models.

A Gamified Experience

Our VR training solutions were not simply intended to educate them about tools, but also to provide them with insight into the occupation. Our goal was to incorporate a competitive element into the experience, so we set up a small competition at the end of the experience. 

The VR application isn’t merely a tool—it’s a narrative giving you insights into the life of a roofer. As users strap on their headsets and begin their virtual journey, they aren’t just watching—they are participating and understanding what it means to be a sheet metal worker in roofing.
