The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) is the statutory organisation and national training provider responsible for the training and development of the UK’s engineering construction workforce.

They act on behalf of the industry and work closely with the Government to attract, develop and qualify engineering construction personnel in the UK.

In providing this service, it is key for the ECITB to make the sector appealing to all ages and to make the subject as interesting as possible.

They also wanted more people to understand the objectives and requirements to be successful in this sector and for people to discuss and share literature to increase brand awareness of ECITB.

Wirebox were instructed to develop an App which can be used on both Android and also Iphone devices.  It wanted people to “be a part of engineering construction”.

Animations were created to represent the different roles within engineering and a game was built so that users of the App could travel through different life cycles of different construction careers. As part of the game users have to collect industry grade qualifications to increase their earning potential – just like in the real World.

With the App developed for the ECITB there were four different games users could select from – each of which were taken to represent the different sectors, including:

  • Oil and Gas Pipefitting
  • Nuclear Decommissioning
  • Renewable Energy
  • Steel Infrastructure

The game is now live and available to be downloaded from the App store, it can be shared by ECITB for users to download for free.
