How will your present become your future - by accident or by design? That’s what we like to ask clients who are taking a hard look at their facility needs.

QLEO (Quantified Learning Environment Outcomes) is a master plan modeling and analysis software, developed by BLDD, to help our clients answer these complex questions. The goal of the program is to provide objective information for what is typically a very subjective and emotional decision.

It works by projecting the costs and benefits of numerous scenarios. For each plan, we calculate the first costs of construction AND the life-cycle costs projected over a given lifespan, then we compare this information to how well your buildings perform, i.e. their educational adequacy. This cost/benefit review creates a logic based analysis identifying the plan that provides the best value: the best educational environment and the best use of funds; an analysis that stands up to rigorous public scrutiny.
