HVAC VR is a virtual reality design tool for designing the interior of a mechanical equipment room. In retrofit installations the current facilities are scanned and used as a basis in the design. Various equipment such as heat pumps, other pumps, heat exchangers and boilers are placed to correct locations and necessary piping introduced to create the desired system.

The immersive virtual reality enables the validation of the design in the correct environment. The design can be evaluated and tested in virtual reality for its installability and maintainability. The created design concretizes the planned system to the end user, eases the cost planning for the installation as well as the installation itself. Furthermore, the HVAC VR tool can be used in training the control and maintenance personnel already before the actual installation work has even started.

HVAC VR tool is being developed together with the Naavatar group in a pilot project supported by the KIRA-digi program.
