Inspiring Business by Sharing Success



NATIONAL M&E consultancy Couch Perry Wilkes (CPW) has welcomed graduate Jorden Damji back to the team following his graduation from Nottingham Trent.

Jorden was based in the Leicester office during his placement year and has re-joined the firm after completing the final year of his architectural technology course.

Jorden said: “I’m really happy to be back at CPW full time. It’s unusual to go from an architectural technology course into M&E but I really enjoyed the more technical aspects of my degree, which goes hand in hand with engineering.

“During my placement I worked on some really interesting projects and was given far more responsibility than my peers, which was something I really appreciated. It’s been great coming back less than a year later as I was working on a couple of bids before I left and now, we’ve won the work and I’m working on the projects!”

The Leicester office, located at St Johns House, has worked on a number of high-profile projects including the new St Margaret’s Bus Station in the city and La Tour Hotel in Milton Keynes. The firm is also working on a number of Department for Education modern method of construction projects including a sustainability pilot project that will inform the future of government school designs by aiming to deliver carbon zero in operation.

Matt Wrate, director at Couch Perry Wilkes heads up the Leicester office. He said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Jorden back into the team.

“As a firm, we’ve always been committed to providing practical experiences, which is why we ensure our placement students and new trainees get stuck in from the very beginning. Jorden was a pleasure to work with during his year with us, which is why we knew we had to get him back once he graduated.

“It’s been slightly different this time around as we’re all working from home rather than being based in the office. However, Jorden has risen to the challenge and really stepped up to be a major support on the projects he’s working on.”

CPW is a national M&E consultancy with more than 200 staff based across ten regional offices around the country. The firm has a strong track record of supporting trainees and apprentices in further and higher education with more than 40% of its Leicester team coming through the training programme.
