DMS has primarily worked within the domestic market place delivering a high standard of workmanship since 1997.
We have worked with local architects , business owners and the general public who have a need for hassle free project management enabling them to go about their daily business with minimum fuss and disruption.
We are able to lead you through a project from inception through to completion. From a first initial visit to assess your requirements, to implementing the planning and drawing process inclusive of building regulations and finally the build process and the coordination of all trades. Carrying out regular meetings and phone calls with the client so as to make what can be a daunting prospect so much easier to deal with.
We cover all trades and have worked with many trusted sub-contractors over the years enabling us to meet all your needs and requirements.
We thrive on a challenge and always endeavour to find a solution to overcome any problems that we may meet along the way. This is important as renovation and re-furbishment projects are not an exact science so the ability to problem solve is important. We pride ourselves on this.
We offer a Full Project Management service which covers New Builds, Extensions, Conversions, Full Refurbishements and Renovations.

We were commissioned by J Hendry Architects to build a new chalet on the Humberstone fitties which is within a conservation area. We had many hoops to jump through to satisfy the local planners and conservation officer. Despite the hurdles we created an outstanding build. The project was recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architecture , winning an award for best small project in the East Midlands area and third nationally. The photographer who took the pictures for the riba magazine said to the client that the standard of finish was among the best he had seen. Extremely nice to be recognised as a contractor and many thanks to the architect for the opportunity .
This double storey extension was only extended to the side by 1.5m but made a massive difference to the property. The works incorporated a new en-suite bathroom , kitchen and utility . The single storey front extension created a nice entrance area before entering into the kitchen.
This is the job that took us to the next level in terms of size of contract. Until this point we were not much more than a one man band but we were put forward for this project on recommendation. The most technically difficult project we’ve undertaken, we carried it through with great success which led to a fantastic working relationship with a very prominent local businessman. A large proportion of the works shown on this website came off the back of this project and the clients friends and contacts. To date it’s safe to say that a million pounds worth of business can be traced back to this project.
When we say loft conversion we basically have doubled the size of the property. The finished flat roof area was 100m2. Technically difficult to do but by working within a scaffold canopy the works were carried out during the winter months, on time and on budget. To this day it’s still the biggest domestic contract that we’ve had.

Our joinery appprentice who has now started his second year.

Darren’s team did an absolutely fantastic job so much so that Josie then decided to have a door put through into her garage and her utility area upgrading with the same units. Josie would like to thank Darren and his team and cannot sing their praises enough.
I would also like to say a massive thank you for taking the worry away away and making having a new kitchen for Josie an exciting stress free time I will be recommending Darren and his team to anybody who is thinking of having Joinery Done.
