Temple Celebrate 25 years of Collaboration with Digital Storybook

19.04.2023 2 min read

To celebrate 25 years of collaboration at Temple, we have created a digital storybook, that looks back at our past achievements, honouring our incredible team, projects, and remarkable collaborations.  

The book has given us a chance to reflect on 25 years of excellence working in the built and natural environment and highlights the timeline of how Temple has become the organisation it is today.  Including the coming together of The Ecology Consultancy, Arbeco, and SRA Associates and showcasing their many achievements. Among those highlighted are  CTRL (High Speed 1), the Shard, London 2012 Olympic Park, Barking Riverside, DLR extensions, Windfarms (various), Meridian Water, DP World, The Elizabeth Line, Thameslink Programme, and HS2, as well as policy work with Defra and Government agencies. We also celebrate all the people that we have worked and collaborated with over the past 25 years.

In October 2022, we hosted an event at the British Library where over 180 of our clients, partners, and staff helped to celebrate this milestone.

Temple started life in January 1997 when founder Mark Southwood and a group of like-minded individuals, came together to discuss the existing limitations in our marketplace and what could be done to meet the challenges. The aim was to create an environmental, planning, and sustainability consultancy service that was authentic and could make a difference. Temple acted as an umbrella organisation for widely respected and trusted consultants, which allied with strong project management credentials, was at the time a unique way of operating.  Temple has now become one of the UK’s leading independent infrastructure and property consultancies, specializing in environment, ecology, planning, and sustainability.

“This is an important milestone for Temple. The marketplace has confronted many challenges and seen many changes over 25 years. Throughout this time, Temple has remained true to its purpose and values and is rightly very proud of its many varied achievements. We look forward to the next 25 years and the part we can play in building more sustainable communities and a sustainable future for all.” Mark Southwood Temple’s Founder and Chair
