A £212m project with London Borough of Camden to bring 14,000 council properties up to standard is just one of Apollo’s contracts from the government’s Decent Homes scheme. The group builds, maintains and renews social housing, schools and hospitals. Bank of Scotland Corporate backed a secondary buyout in August 2007, and led by chief executive Rob McGregor, the company grew sales to £301.6m in 2009. Last month it was one of the 103 companies fined by the Office of Fair Trading for bid-rigging.
