TEMPO was established to fill a void, and ignite an opportunity.

The built environment sector and the policy making that shapes it, along with the practitioners who plan and design it, have at times struggled to keep pace with digital transformation.


And the challenge is real - the pace of change is eyewatering! 


The way digital and data is shaping the built environment, and the economy, is the challenge for the decade. A decade that is relying on deep action to achieve our climate commitments, productivity gains and enhance human prosperity and wellbeing.

The built environment (that we shape) is one of the most significant contributors to our wellbeing and prosperity, and at TEMPO we believe digital and data can play a critical role.

But we need to pick up the tempo, and now!

Who is TEMPO?

Two built environment leaders who have championed digital and data-led transformation make up TEMPO - Gavin Cotterill and Adam Beck.

Adam is Head of Digital Urbanism at ENE.HUB, a digital infrastructure company helping shape high quality public places and spaces. He is an urbanist who has worked for private sector consultancies and leading global non-government organisations for almost 30 years.


Adam established the Smart Cities Academy while in his role as Founding Executive Director at Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand. He created the training program for the EcoDistricts Accredited Practitioner program in the United States, and before that led the education business at the Green Building Council of Australia in his capacity as Executive Director.
