New Associates at DLA

David Lock Associates is pleased to announce the promotion of two of our senior staff members to Associate. We would also like to extend a welcome to our most recent employee.

Brodie Blades commenced with David Lock Associates in 2015 as a Senior Urban Designer and Town Planner, and has been an integral team member in providing urban design expert evidence, urban design advice and town planning assessments on behalf of both public and private clients. As a new Associate, Brodie is looking forward to continuing to apply his detailed understanding of urban design and planning to assist clients whilst also furthering his passion for visual communication and all things design.

Julia Bell has also been with David Lock Associates since early 2015 as Senior Urban Designer. Julia has been an essential contributor to DLA’s urban design team and successes. Her work has demonstrated a commitment to providing a range of strategic planning and urban design outcomes, ranging from structure and framework planning and master planning, to also providing expert evidence at Planning Panels Victoria. In her new role as an associate, Julia looks forward to working with existing and future clients to deliver exciting and innovative projects in 2017.


Both Brodie and Julia will continue to evoke the exceptional and high quality work ethic for which DLA is recognised.

DLA wishes to congratulate both Brodie and Julia on their efforts over the last two years and we look forward to their contribution as Associates continuing into the future.


We are also pleased to welcome Vincent Pham, who has recently joined DLA as a permanent member of the team.
