The success of a construction project depends on the successful design. The approach in building design considers to create more sustainable designs. However, designers face several factors that reduce the success rate of the design, that are the design model and the method used. One of the ways to manage this problem is combining all information and systems for the best design. This study analyzes the influence of communication among stakeholder in design process, to the successful design of building design. Data was collected by distributing questionnaires to 37 respondents from design consultants in Surabaya who involved in several building design. Furthermore, a correlation analysis is conducted to analyze the effect of communication on a successful design. The result is verified by interview. The results of the analysis found that communication does not significantly affect to the successful design. The findings of this study are expected to give more benefits to design actors, so the successful design will be increased.
