There is an urgent need to improve our understanding of the digital transformation of the construction in order to leverage the benefits of the wider adoption of the Industry 4.0 paradigm. However, there is a lack of systematic research on the digital transformation pathway of the construction industry. In view of this, this study uses the LDA theme model to explore the key influencing factors for the digital transformation of the construction industry and builds a digital comprehensive evaluation system of the construction industry with DEMATEL-ANP. The findings are as follows: Firstly, five elements of the construction industry, such as enterprise resources, enterprise capabilities, enterprise spirit, macro environment and industry environment, have an important impact on the digital transformation of the construction industry. Secondly, the ability of construction enterprises has the most significant influence on the digital transformation of the construction industry. This empirical study provides policy suggestions and an implementation framework for realizing high-quality development of the construction industry based on digital technological innovation. The study helps construction enterprises to understand the necessity of digital transformation and provides a theoretical basis and practical ideas for construction enterprises to formulate their own digital transformation strategies.
