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

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.
