Celebrating 15 years of Apollo Projects
This month Apollo Projects is celebrating its 15th anniversary! Over the past 15 years Apollo Projects has evolved and grown, but the core principle has stayed the same; a client’s trust is everything. Maybe that’s why we continue to work with our first ever client; Wairau River Wines. In 2001 Apollo was commissioned for the design and build of a 1,600m² winery with associated plant services in Marlborough. Fast forward to 2016 and Apollo will complete their ninth project with Wairau River Wines. This is common with many of our clients – but don’t take our word for it, see what our clients have to say.
The culture at Apollo revolves around fun. The fun we have working together is mirrored in the way we work with our clients, contractors and consultants to deliver the best possible solution. It is this approach of working closely with our project partners and challenging industry paradigms that stirred directors Paul Lloyd and Craig Waghorn to create Apollo Projects. From concept to completion our philosophy is to work with the client to develop fit for purpose solutions. The outcomes of these projects and the relationships formed along the way goes reflects the essence of our main objective; to have fun and build unique stories.

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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
