The creation of digital twins will, with little doubt, impact construction sector suppliers (e.g. refurbishment specialists and trades contractors) in the services they render. It will place on such firms the responsibility to acquire technological capabilities to examine digital twins of assets they need to work on. Data from the ONS shows that a majority of firms that provide such services are SMEs. Research focusing on technology adoption emphasise how SMEs in the construction sector are particularly challenged on many fronts in trying to make technological transitions. Resource constraints, for instance, make the adoption of new technologies an impractical move despite being crucial for their survival.

As part of  the DTHub program:

How can SME firms be helped to acquire the relevant technological capabilities in order to make the transition into a 'new age' of service provision with digital twins at the centre?

What pathways for technological transition can be created for firms that are willing, but unable to expend resources to evolve?
