Jim Hadfield – Managing Director
As the Managing Director of A J Field Developments Ltd, Jim uses his 20 plus years of experience and knowledge of the construction industry to give the best service possible. He is always on hand to offer support and advice throughout the whole project, from planning to completion.
Following successful completion of his Construction Management degree course at the University of the West of England, Jim went on to work for and with many highly regarded multi-national companies in the United Kingdom on several multi million pound projects.
This naturally led him into setting up AJ Field Developments Ltd where he could use his expertise and skills best. Jim takes a fierce pride in his work and sets high standards for himself and the company. This enables AJ Field Developments Ltd to offer an unrivalled service to clients and give the best customer focus possible.
Jim is perhaps most proud of the word of mouth reputation the company has which results from working with our fantastic clients in the past and present to give their project the desired outcome. He hopes to build on this and continue to lead AJ Field Developments Ltd into even higher levels of excellence in the future.
Ailis Hadfield – Company Secretary/ Co-Director
Ailis plays a pivotal role in the running of AJ Field Developments Ltd as Co-Director and Company Secretary. With extensive knowledge and experience within the industry, she plays a vital role in dealing with customer queries and managing the day to day running of the office.
After completing her degree course in Construction Management at the University of the West of England, Ailis spent many years working within the Building and Civil Engineering sector of the industry.
Eventually this led her to deciding to set up AJ Field Developments with husband Jim where they could both use their specific skills to maximum effect. Ailis has a determination to offer the very best to clients in terms of service and outcome which shows in her customer focused approach to work. Ailis’s many years of experience make her best placed to manage the business side of the company and provide technical back-up.
Along with Managing Director Jim, she plans to continue to offer a superb customer experience to help AJ Field Developments Ltd grow further into the future.
Here’s what some of our satisfied customers have to say about us and the service we offer:
Dave Wood - Architectural Technologist, Tarpey Woodfine Architects
"As an Architects practice, we are always seeking good building contractors. It is rare to find such a personable building contractor who is also highly professional. Our project involved the refurbishment and alteration of a residential property, which was a Grade 2 listed building. Our aim was to provide a luxurious open plan living space with crisp, modern finishes set within the traditional Victorian Gothic style former school house. This aim was definitely achieved and was made much easier by working with a building contractor such as AJ Field Developments."
"It was clear that attention to detail and the clients' best interests where always at the forefront. Any site issues were brought to our attention promptly and dealt with professionally, which lead to a highly successful project and an extremely satisfied client. We look forward to working with AJ Field Developments again in the near future."
Mr and Mrs Tranter, Cheshire:
“I think it’s more than fair to say that Jim exceeded our expectations and this is one of the highest accolades we could pay him”
“Throughout the project Jim demonstrated a positive, can-do attitude to the many demanding aspects of this build and this made dealing with him a pleasure throughout.”
Matthew Lanham, Chief Executive – The Neuromuscular Centre, Winsford
“The quality of the design and the workmanship has been outstanding, giving us a much larger building that is constantly exceeding our hopes and expectations.”
“I would, without hesitation, recommend AJ Field to another organisation”
