Apollo Kitchens is the leading manufacturer, supplier and installer of custom made kitchens, cabinetry and joinery items for contemporary interiors.
For The Orchards, Apollo Kitchens manufactured, supplied and installed cabinetry across all 121-apartments.
They fitted detailed joinery including kitchen cupboards, shelving for butler’s pantries, wine racks, TV units, book shelves, vanities for the bathrooms and laundry cabinets. Apollo Kitchens also supplied and fitted linen and storage cupboards as well as joinery to the studies. The large job had two installation teams working simultaneously over two buildings. The kitchen cabinets are finished with a bright, polyurethane, natural white gloss and have mirrored splashbacks. Benchtops have a neat shadow line and bench cupboards have conveniently inset kickboards with a metal finish.
Apollo Kitchens’ onsite team coordinated with all trades to ensure joinery was installed to high specifications. In particular, the bathroom vanities were installed in two segments to protect the mirrored doors from potential damage.
Apollo Kitchens provided a complete joinery solution for The Orchards including bi-folding doors for each apartment’s ‘Flexi Room’. Flexi Room is an additional room that can be easily utilised as a study, nursery, recreational room or even a guest bedroom. Apollo Kitchens had the capability to finish the specialty doors in polyurethane via their automated paint line.
The majority of the items were manufactured over three months, in keeping with the builders’ tight schedule, in Apollo Kitchens’ new Smart Factory. “We have recently commissioned a new high tech factory to meet industry demand for the future,” said Apollo Kitchens’ Managing Director, Peter Bader. “We intend to set a new benchmark for Australian manufacturing. The new Smart Factory and Head Office will allow us to continue our high quality offerings for larger volume projects.” The new facility will complement Apollo Kitchens’ stone, paint and other cabinet manufacturing plants in New South Wales, each with an inhouse paint line.
“The Smithfield Smart Factory and Head Office have increased our ability to offer highly customisable kitchen, laundry and bathroom joinery for any project, whether it is a residential property or a larger project,” said Peter. “In addition, we have showrooms at Smithfield as well as in Waterloo near Sydney’s city centre, in Beresfield and Erina on the Central Coast.” The transition to the Smart Factory has represented a substantial investment in research, leadership time and capital for Apollo Kitchens as they prepare for the future. “With a successful 50 years as an industry leader, we recognise that for the next 50 years we need to harness world leading technology and best business practice,” said Peter.
Apollo Kitchens provides pre-development consulting services to architects, surveyors and builders and has become the kitchen company of choice for countless interior designers, builders and commercial developers. Apollo Kitchens has a reputation built on innovative design and expert craftsmanship.
Apollo Kitchens is also rolling out a transformative new online management system to make all their projects run more smoothly. The automated system provides live status updates on all joinery milestones and streamlines the ordering, production and installation process.
Apollo Kitchens have previously worked with Sekisui House at Wentworth Point. Apollo Kitchens manufactured and installed cabinetry and joinery to over 700 apartments across the three tower blocks, Savannah, Taiga and The Address.
Other successful projects for Apollo Kitchens include large scale high rise residential kitchen and bathroom installations at the recently completed joinery for Billbergia’s Marina Square at Wentworth Point, Ceerose’s Arlington Grove for at Dulwich Hill and Deicorp’s GrandH in Hurstville. Apollo Kitchens also fabricated high end joinery for Platino Properties’ luxury development, Niche, in Cremorne and are appointed to deliver joinery for Stage 3 of Woolooware Bay Town Centre.
