Extensions & Refurbishments

We are specialists in working within existing operational environments.

Apollo has considerable experience working within existing facility upgrades, extensions or strengthening programmes.

The ability to successfully undertake construction works while maintaining operations - and in the case of food processing facilities, food grade hygiene standards - is incredibly unique.

Over the years we have taken learnings from each project and implemented them on the next. The result is robust systems and processes which ensure safety, quality and costs are well-managed - which gives clients the trust and certainty they need.

Scoping work within existing facilities is often challenging, often resulting in programme and cost overruns. Apollo's systems and vast experience mitigates this risk for the client. Contrary to industry norms, trust and certainty is exactly what a client can expect from us - particularly when managing Health & Safety and ensuring minimal disruption to existing operations.

We have worked for some of New Zealand's largest corporate companies in some of the most challenging environments including Fonterra, George Weston Foods, Wither Hills, Meadowfresh, Kiwicare, Lion Co., Sanford, Tegel and more. All of these projects required a level of hygiene standard and the need to ensure existing operations were largely uninterrupted.


Fonterra Edendale

Apollo Projects managed the design and construction of a new Redline Facility for Fonterra, as part of ongoing works at the Edendale processing plant.

The project involved the demolition of the existing facility, establishment of a temporary critical hygiene redline facility for Fonterra staff to use in the interim, and the design and construction of the new building.

What our clients are saying

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.
