Lloyds Register Foundation

Maritime Surveyor

VR experience

Lloyd’s Register Foundation wanted to inspire the next generation of maritime surveyors and engineers in an innovative and engaging way. Their vision was to allow visitors to learn about the importance of surveyor roles and how they’ve evolved over time as maritime engineering has progressed.

We created Maritime Surveyor; a gamified VR learning experience that immerses visitors in simulated environments and challenges them to take on the varied roles of a surveyor across key eras of maritime engineering. This involves undertaking key tasks surveyors would perform in three types of vessel construction: wood, composite and steel.

Lloyd’s Register Foundation Maritime Surveyor lets visitors:

  • Travel back in time through different eras of maritime vessel construction

  • Explore three unique, stunning ships in breathtaking VR

  • Learn how the role of surveyors has evolved as new ship-building methods were introduced

  • Complete key tasks, which surveyors would usually undertake, against the clock

  • Earn digital copies of blueprints for some of history’s most important vessels by completing missions


“In my five years at LR, Volume have been one of the easiest digital suppliers I have ever worked with. From concept to design and testing, communication and implementation has been very well organised.”
