"Benefiting from CAMS Asset Management experience"
As a developer and landlord, Magna has over the last 18 months benefitted from CAMS broad base of Asset Management experience from several sectors, helping us embed best practice Asset Management and whole life cycle cost principles into planning, building, and maintaining our housing stock.

"CAMS bring a wealth of operational experience"
We have worked since 2009 providing BIM services across the State of Qatar. One challenge we face is around how to seamlessly integrate BIM into our client organisations, and prevent overlaps, gaps and conflicts with existing client IT systems. CAMS bring a wealth of operational experience that we were able to take on board to enable us to present better BIM solutions for our clients in Qatar.

"Answering those really difficult questions"
We employed CAMS to help answer a key question, "which method of construction for our new programme offers the best value for money when considering all costs and risks over the life of the homes?” Using their DST, CAMS presented a robust business case in favour of the best method of construction that aligns with our strategy to provide long term sustainable homes at affordable prices. Not only has this helped guide our development programme, but the DST has also highlighted areas where we can improve in the management of our existing homes
