Jim Hadfield – Managing Director

As the Managing Director of A J Field Developments Ltd, since our website was first drafted time has raced on and Jim now has 30 plus years of experience to offer! 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.

He hopes to build on this and continue to lead AJ Field Developments Ltd into even higher levels of excellence in the future.

Large Renovation Project


“The resulting build is everything we could have hoped for – high quality construction on time and on budget – despite the pandemic, Suez canal blockage and Brexit! Happy to recommend!”

“We had worked before with A J Field Developments Ltd and were confident they would build the house we had designed.  A J Field Developments Ltd have developed a team of skilled tradesmen, and sub contractors to achieve the quality required from the entire building team. We came to know everyone working on site and developed an excellent working relationship with them.”

Johnstone and Julia Godfrey

Northwich, Cheshire

A J Field recently undertook renovation work on our home – a Grade Two Listed property built in 1862. Our experience of working with A J Field was extremely positive and we can’t recommend them highly enough. Projects of this nature involving listed buildings are notoriously fraught with issues and complications and whilst ours was no different, it was the way the issues were handled that made all the difference. Our contractor remained approachable and professional at all times. Jim’s positive and obliging attitude ensured the project ran smoothly and was as stress free as possible. We are very pleased with the quality of work and meticulous attention to detail. We now have a beautiful family home and a little piece of beautifully preserved English history of which we are extremely proud.

Please can I say on behalf of NMC and all the folk here, how pleased we are with Jim’s work and the work from all his incredible team.  The finished product is great and will enable many people with various mobility and strength challenges to enjoy a dignified and safe loo experience!

I very much appreciate all Jim’s efforts to keep costs low and his coordination of the specialist suppliers and fitters.

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.”

Mr and Mrs Tranter


“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.”
