This study presents the assessment of the influence of stakeholder’s contribution on sustainable building construction, with a view to ascertaining the respective role of stakeholders on construction projects. Data obtained for the study were, through well-structured questionnaires distributed to professionals in construction industry. Out of the eighty-six (86) questionnaires that was administered, seventy-three (73) questionnaires were collected and analysed using Mean Item Score (MIS). The data were analysed and presented with tables, considering the influences of different stakeholders at different stages of construction stages, Mean Item Scores (MIS) was used to rank the divers’ influences that stakeholders can have on a project. The results show that Government authorities were highly ranked for the pre-construction stage. For the construction stage, stakeholders have the highest dominant role in the construction stage. It was therefore concluded that the general public ranked the highest influence in the post construction stage.
