Angela Ormerod-Lord - Design ConsultantHi, I’m Angela Ormerod-Lord, 

I don’t mind what style a house is, I love creating something beautiful for my clients. Whether it’s minimalist contemporary or a heritage-listed Victorian home, I have experience in all aspects of design. Future proofing is important to me too, so that you can be sure your newly improved home will suit future generations. Good design that flows well and has the whole family in mind is essential. I think it’s also important to get things right at the beginning. It means you need to outlay less money at prestart and you get a more seamless result. Before I came to Dale’s two years ago, I already had a few years experience in the home improvement industry under my belt. Before that, I had businesses in creative design, manufacturing and retail. I’ve also done my own home improvement project, so I know first-hand what it feels like!


Hi, I’m Dean Brunton,

I’m a firm believer that there are no problems, only solutions when it comes to home improvement. Whether it’s a dysfunctional floor plan, a question of aesthetics or a simple space issue, I like the challenge of taking a home and making it better. I’ve overseen many of the large home extension projects I’ve designed since I started as a junior draftsman with Dale’s in 1994, and my wife and I have built three times in the past 15 years, so you could say I’m pretty adept at marrying good design with the practicalities of construction and renovation. I think it’s also important to remember that architectural styles come and go, and each time they evolve into something new. As a designer you have to adapt to current trends while having a good understanding of the past. With 20 years design experience under my belt, I still get excited when a house throws up a challenge – it could be from the past, the present or the future – and it’s my job to find the solution.

Steve Kemp - Design ConsultantHi, I’m Steve Kemp, 

If you’d asked me when I was 16 what I wanted to do for work, I would have told you I wanted to be a residential designer. I got work experience when I was still at school and knew it was my dream career. I was good at technical drawing and at one stage wanted to be a carpenter, but my passion for residential design took over. My father was a keen artist, which also had a big influence on me. I’ve now been in the home improvement industry for 30 years. Of those, more than 20 years have been at Dale’s as I was there at the beginning, when the home improvement division started in 1996. Not only am I a qualified designer, but I also have a good understanding of separating ‘wants’ from ‘needs’, and the importance of detailed costing’s. Both can be so important when planning a home improvement project. My wife and I have two boys, two dogs and a cat, and have renovated three times, so I can honestly say I understand how to design for the future so you don’t outgrow your home. Drag me away from my drawing board and I love nothing better than spending time with my family, playing and coaching hockey, and following motorsport.


Wayne March - Design ConsultantHi, I’m Wayne March, 

I’ve lived through a renovation so I know just what my clients can expect. It was an older property – a Californian bungalow in Mount Hawthorn – and the project made such a difference to the way the house worked, not to mention the change to the way it looked. I’ve been a Dale’s design consultant for eight years after moving across from the new homes team. It just seemed to be a natural progression for someone who loves design and helping people. I love helping homeowners turn their ideas and vision into reality, making their home a great place to live in. As a family-oriented guy, I know what modern families demand of their homes these days. I also love all sports and keep physically active with mountain biking, running and swimming.
