This free gaming application enables players to explore a career in highway construction and provides organizations with skilled talent for professional opportunities in the skilled trades.

Simcoach Games describes Future Road Builders as a pre-learning experience where players interact with each phase of a virtual highway construction project while learning the skills necessary to be a construction professional. Future Road Builders was built in partnership with the Constructors Association of Western Pennsylvania.

Players learn about the skills needed to be a carpenter, concrete finisher, skilled laborer, heavy equipment operator, and inspector. In addition to exploring the trades, users also take practice tests and complete interactive activities. Players are rewarded for reaching certain benchmarks and milestones.

Future Road Builders is part of Simcoach Skill Arcade, which is a workforce development training platform that uses video games to expose the next generation to career paths while connecting them to training, apprenticeships and employment in their region.

For employers, Future Road Builders offers a dashboard that connects actors and companies. The dashboard provides organizations with data to better understand potential employees, including regional players, their interests and abilities. Organizations may also allow the ability to target messages to specific audiences based on postal codes registered by players.
