At Apollo, we've never been afraid to challenge the status quo.
When Craig Waghorn and Paul Lloyd started Apollo in 2001, they were determined to break away from the traditional management process and do things differently. They saw an opportunity to partner with clients from the very start, taking their ideas right from concept all the way through to completion – something that was poorly executed in the industry!
Today, Apollo is a leading New Zealand design and construction company with over 40 professional project delivery and support staff across the country. We regularly work with major national companies including Fonterra, Goodman Fielder, George Weston Foods, Ngai Tahu and Lion Co., as well as private owner-operated businesses, sports organisations and Government/Council entities.
Even though Apollo has grown over fourteen years, we’ve never lost our core value that a ‘client’s trust is everything’. Apollo is different simply because we operate as a partner with our clients – our goal from the very beginning has always been to build strong relationships from which we can deliver successful projects.
Whatever the project, our focus is simple – listen to you, our client, and deliver absolute trust and certainty from the start.

In all our dealings with Apollo they always acted with the upmost integrity and professionalism. From taking the project brief to consultation with all key stakeholders within our organisation Apollo certainly played a significant role in ensuring that the project was a complete success from every angle.
Apollo Projects were the most outstanding company to deal with. From the initial discussion to the completion of the project they were amazingly professional, very open, transparent and honest and prepared to go the extra yard to make sure all parties were fully informed. Not only that, we were finished a month early and under budget…
The professionalism that Apollo have shown throughout the Edendale Redline upgrade is to be commended. Their attention to detail ensured that the quality of workmanship from all trade staff involved met the food safety standards required as well as stepwise innovative improvement which met Fonterra’s strategy to be “The World’s most trusted source of dairy nutrition.” This project had a challenging time constraint window which Apollo managed extremely well, and now the site has one of the best redlines in the country.
The design team Apollo assembled was first rate and contributed significantly to what has proven to be a first class facility. Apollo’s performance in managing this design process was also to a very high standard. Apollo certainly excels in the incorporation of buildability and construction input into the design process. This ensured that the majority of the design issues were clarified prior to the construction phase on site.
This project has been completed in about a third of the time it normally takes to design, plan and build a major police station. It’s been an outstanding effort from everyone involved. This is a very different environment from the premises we’ve occupied in the past. It’s modern, spacious and high-tech – and having so many of our staff on one site is encouraging us all to work more collaboratively.
I am delighted to say that Apollo rose to the challenge and delivered a turnkey solution on time and within budget. They pulled out all the stops.
