The team at Apollo are always on hand to offer help and advice when needed, especially Rob James, whose hard work and dedication to see this project to the end has been fantastic. The building is a representation of his hard work and a well-deserved pat on the back for him
Debbie Buss, practice manager, Harbourside Health Centre

It is nice to finally sit in our new facility and be satisfied not just that everything has been built to plan but also that it looks and feels even better than expected. Apollo, as a company and on an individual basis with all involved, deserves great credit for that. Always fair, honest and approachable, the team around Rob James was first and foremost very reliable.
