We have worked with Apollo for over four years to create the new centre. Throughout, their attention to detail and ability to listen and interpret our requirements has been outstanding.
Kim Came, practice manager

Apollo and Rob James have been thoroughly professional throught the scheme and have created an excellent facility for the staff and visitors to Rumney.
Eleri Crudgington, Cardiff & Vale University Health Board lead

I really enjoyed the visits to both Rumney and Cloughmore, very different schemes in terms of size and location, both with very different challenges. However, the one common theme was the quality and attention to detail. Very well done on another two quality schemes.
