Abstract: The construction industry in Singapore is facing a need to accelerate the use of new technologies amid the COVID-19 pandemic and respond to the new challenges emerging due to the market demand. One of the key enablers to this revolution towards boosting the construction efficiency, is adopting the digital twin (DT) framework. Digital twin are often referred to as the virtual creations of a building; where this virtual creation is an accurate reflection of a physical building or object. The ability of digital twin also includes incorporating real-time information to the model, allowing for a more accurate interpretation and draw better decisions. This paper aims to provide a picture of how the use of digital twin framework will be able to boost the construction efficiency in Singapore, especially during a pandemic such as the COVID-19. In addition, it aims at clearly tracing the ongoing research and technical challenges that the Singapore construction companies are facing when attempting to adopt some of the digital twin technologies. A set of questionnaires was developed based on the literature findings and was asked to the interviewees to understand their perceptions on the impact of digital twin on construction efficiency during a pandemic.
