Apollo Kitchens were contracted by the Urban apartments builder, Ceerose Pty Ltd, to manufacture and install over 200 kitchens, showers and linen cabinets in their five building, 4-storey apartment complex as well as the 15 terraces in between.
To maximise space, the kitchens are open plan and integrate with the apartment. For a bright, natural and elegant look they were built with warm wood and stone tiles. The appliances are incorporated; the stove, fridge and cabinets against one wall. One important feature is the oversized island bench complete with a sink and extra drawers. The bench has timber grain framing and a 32mm thick framing panel with two-tone colouring, giving a durable feel with a modern edge.
To install 30 kitchens a week, on a stringent deadline and in this peak construction boom period, Apollo Kitchens utilised its factory in Newcastle to support the Sydney team. Onsite, they allocated multiple installation teams to work in the separate towers and terraces to advance the project and meet the construction program. Their project managers were onsite daily to coordinate with other trades efficiently.
Family-owned and operated since 1968, Apollo Kitchens has a reputation for innovative and flexible design, expert craftsmanship and exceptional service. They are the kitchen company of choice for many commercial developers, builders, architects and interior designers.
Using state-of-the-art facilities and software, the kitchens are designed, manufactured and installed to the highest standards. Furthermore, their progressive in-house design team keep up with the very latest in trends from around the world. A quality product needs to be produced in first-rate facilities and using the best possible software and machinery. Apollo Kitchens take pride in their advanced quality control methods overlooking every kitchen that they design and build.
Apollo Kitchens belong to several industry bodies, including FIAA Australia, HIA Kitchens & Bathrooms, KBDI, Urban Development Institute of Australia and the NSW Business Chamber. Peter Bader, CEO and Managing Director of Apollo Kitchens is a member of HIA’s Kitchens and Bathroom Committee. This means they keep on top of the latest industry trends and developments and provide true value when it comes to their client and supplier relationships.
Apollo Kitchens take its environmental responsibilities seriously and as such, is acutely aware of the impact that building materials have on the environment. That’s why they work with suppliers, who are members of The Green Building Council of Australia, to ensure they apply these important green principles. The GBCA organisation is strongly supported by both the industry and Governments across Australia, and is vital in developing a sustainable property industry for the country.
Peter Bader, said, “Apollo Kitchens will launch its new state-of-the-art, high-tech factory early next year. This will increase our capacity by an additional 400 kitchens a week and will continue to handle large volume projects with a high level of detail and quality. The new head office and factory will complement our stone, paint and other cabinet manufacturing plants in New South Wales. This is an exciting new chapter for Apollo and the industry will benefit immensely from this project as the factory will be an Australian first and will set a new benchmark for the joinery manufacturing industry.”
Apollo Kitchens designed and manufactured the kitchens for the award winning DNA apartments at Camperdown, adjoining the Urban apartment and the award winning Harbour Mill in Pyrmont by Ceerose Pty Ltd developments. Ceerose Pty Ltd have appointed Apollo Kitchens for Lumina which incorporate 61 apartments with ground floor retail shops in Ashfield and the much anticipated ‛The Mint’ in Willoughby.
