The Tempo Group - luxury beyond the ordinary

In this issue of Frankly Frankston Magazine we introduce The Tempo Group – builders of one-of-a-kind custom homes, based on the Mornington Peninsula.

The Tempo Group was founded by Peninsula local and father-of-three Ben Comelli 10 years ago with a mission to create high-end homes for clients looking for something beyond the ordinary.

The Tempo Team build beautiful, sophisticated, livable homes through the seamless integration of design, project management and construction. The Tempo process is straightforward, flexible when clients need it to be and above all, transparent. Their fully integrated service incorporates careful planning, detailed client communication and solid advice, which is reflected in the quality of their work and final product.

The Group’s growth has been entirely organic, with a focus on procuring and developing their sites and projects. The Tempo Group is a fully licensed domestic and commercial building company with a client-focused team that takes a hands-on approach from initial design, right through to construction and delivery of a premium property. Today, The Group delivers more than 120 projects a year and employs 48 people. And, they focus on using local suppliers and contractors. You can see their projects across the Peninsula, from Mornington to Mount Martha, Mount Eliza, Balnarring and Sorrento and also in St Kilda, Clifton Hill and Geelong.


The Group has completed a superb three-level HQ and Innovation Centre in Mornington with multiple breakout areas, boardroom feature green wall, staff gym, Pilates and yoga studio, boardroom, team bar and more! They are also committed to “giving back” and in 2016, 11 members constructed and gifted houses to families in remote Cambodia. This September they plan to launch their largest house-gifting campaign yet. The goal? To raise enough funds to build and deliver more than 50 homes, including a school in flood affected areas of Cambodia.

Ben has a mantra “we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give”.
