Who Is Hadley?

Every HOME is built with a strong connection to our heritage, forged over half a century through advanced cold rolled steel technology. This is because HOME is part of the Hadley Group, responsible for innovative applications across sectors as diverse as construction, automotive, industrial and agriculture. It means the same traditional values and philosophies that has driven world class manufacturing and construction for over 50 years also drive us.

We are a sister company of Hadley Steel Framing, world leader in cold rolled section profiles and an internationally renowned in house design, detailing and installation community.

As HOME, our aim is to set the standard once again, this time with Advanced Methods of Construction. We are proud to represent the values of professional and social improvement that firmly establish the Hadley family as world leaders in construction.

Meet The HOME Team


Paul Nicol

Director of AMC, Hadley Group

Paul’s role at Hadley is to direct and lead on all Advanced Methods of Construction (AMC) activities. He was responsible for the creation of HOME’s dedicated production facility where our modular homes are designed, manufactured and assembled. With over 25 years’ of experience in construction and manufacturing, Paul’s skills lie in both project management and delivery management, and he has significant structural and facades expertise. The requirement for the construction industry to change the way houses are built is what drives Paul. He has a passion for delivering modular houses which reduce in-living costs and the impact on the environment, but which also exceed the mandate for time, cost and quality.
