Apollo's outstanding track record in the design and construction of industry-leading cold storage facilities has given our team a strong appreciation of the ever-evolving nature of bulk storage and inventory control. You will get a well-planned building design solution that integrates the storage requirements of any specified product, from dairy to produce.
From concept design to building consent documentation to construction, our highly skilled team will develop a facility that best encompasses your product lifecycle requirements. Our project delivery expertise includes:
- Resource and building consent application and management
- Structural and thermal building design
- Post-tensioned slab technology
- Selection and flow design of storage and racking systems
- Inward and outward product logistics
- Refrigeration and HVAC
- Electrical engineering
- Fire protection
- Health & Safety both in the project delivery and the workplace
Apollo's design approach is strongly data driven; our experience shows it is critical that the concept developed is based on the nature of the product in storage, the client's business model and inventory control mechanisms.
Careful consideration is given to selecting appropriate insulated paneling for the application, meeting the requirements of a cost-effective solution to fire safety, ease and speed of construction, high thermal R-values and zero water retention.
This 7,000m2 purpose built Cheese Maturation Facility was negotiated with Fonterra and developed from preliminary concept design to an operational handover in less than 12 months.
The design and build project incorporates six temperature controlled stores with a capacity of 14,500 pallet spaces
This project involved the complete design and delivery of a 12,000m2 distribution centre in Palmerston North. The facility supplies frozen and chilled products to Foodstuffs supermarkets from Wellington to Waiouru.
Fonterra Cooperative Group Limited operates milk processing facilities across New Zealand and sought to consolidate distribution systems in its southern New Zealand operations by constructing a new distribution centre in Mosgiel.
The project involved the construction of a new coldstore, chiller, dry goods and produce/ELA area within an existing building using various thicknesses of Kingspan coldstore wall and ceiling panel. In addition a new single storey office block which extends inside the facility.

Apollo were engaged on a negotiated basis to provide the design and project delivery for this 2,800m2 temperature-controlled food service distribution centre in Hastings, which was completed in February 2013.
What our clients are saying
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.
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.
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.
