Woodland DBM (Woodland Property Services Limited) was established in 1997 by Matt Fearn and remains a family owned, people centred, future focused organisation designing, building and maintaining the property assets of public and private clients across all industry sectors throughout the UK

At Woodland we believe that everyone, without exception, deserves to be treated as an individual.

Through our mission statement | In everything | start excellent | aim higher we hope to clearly communicate our key values, neatly defined into two very simple words 'WE CARE'

WE CARE to LISTEN | and by listening we understand
WE CARE to INNOVATE | and through innovation, we ensure quality
WE CARE to DELIVER | armed with a clear understanding and a drive towards innovation we aim to always deliver beyond expectations 


Matt, much like his father and his own son John James (JJ), started his working life as an apprentice in the family business.  Alongside his father on projects for Derby City Council and various Derby-based housing associations, Matt soon gained the experience and expertise to go it alone, and in an industry that had well and truly become his forte, Woodland was founded.

Woodlands initial focus was on the social housing sector in Derby specialising in repair & maintain contracts.  As confidence grew along with reputation, Woodland began to branch out into new home development for social and private clients along with one-off build projects and void management.

Presently Woodland continues to grow and expand its services across all private and public sectors.  With its Head Office still in Derby, and regional offices continuing to spring up across the Midlands and North East, from Louth in Lincolnshire through to Wellingborough and Birmingham, it's clear Woodlands is definitely a business to watch out for.
