With a passion for exceptional craftsmanship, Dale began his career in construction in 1971 at the Carpenters Union 1622 in Hayward, California. Targets set high, he excelled quickly through the apprentice program finishing a year ahead of his class – the first of many accolades decorating a successful career in the trades. Next at the early age of 26, Dale continued his success by acquiring his State Contractor’s License and shortly after opened the doors to D.R.S. Stairs Inc. in San Jose, California. Today, with nearly 50 years of experience in construction and construction management Dale’s vast knowledge base has allowed him to stay competitive and thrive in the Bay Area’s ever-changing environment. He’s grown to believe in not only the art of construction, but also the art of building relationships and how they both can make the community where we live just a little bit better.
