Abstract: The purpose of this review article is to address the existing knowledge gap by presenting an extensive overview of the diverse uses of digital technology (DT) in the fields of construction and civil engineering. Additionally, it seeks to demonstrate how DT can effectively mitigate the challenges faced by the sector. A comprehensive review is conducted by collating insights from recent research papers across the globe and providing a holistic, time-efficient, and tailored understanding of the Digital Twin Technology in Civil Engineering and Construction. The review spanned critical areas including infrastructure construction, structural health monitoring, energy efficiency in buildings, seismic evaluation of buildings, safety of heritage buildings, and the diverse applications of digital twins in construction design, monitoring and management. This study acts as a thorough guide for experts, providing them with a consolidated source of knowledge. With the construction industry’s complicated difficulties, understanding how digital twins might provide solutions is crucial. Professionals can use this technology to assure not only efficiency but also sustainability, which is becoming increasingly important in today’s environment.
