Apollo Kitchens, based in the Sydney suburb of Smithfield were brought in to undertake an allocation of the residential kitchen joinery, which also included the installation of vanities and shaving cabinets.
The entire projects consists of 539 apartments, combined with 5 residential buildings and a retail plaza.
“Overall I’ve found little challenges but our only real challenge was installing the large shaving cabinets and vanities and ensuring that they were fixed and stable. The brief was to create a floating look, which we achieved.” said Peter Bader, Managing Director of Apollo Kitchens.
Using a textured timber veneer board on this project, it took about 3 months for Apollo Kitchens to fulfill their duties.
