Potters Bar construction firm builds �2.5m college centre
A DISTINGUISHED college will be enjoying its new �2.5m eco-friendly building a little earlier than planned, thanks to a construction company from Potters Bar.
Staff and students at the prestigious Haileybury boarding college in Hertford Heath will be able to use their new modern language centre ahead of schedule, after hiring Newland Construction, based in St Vincent’s Way, to carry out the work.
In recent years, Newland Construction has began to concentrate on environmental technologies.
Previous projects have included the installation of wood pellet boilers, ground source heat pumps, solar panels, rainwater harvesting systems and materials with enhanced energy efficiency.
Some of these technologies, such as the ground source heat pump, which takes heat from the ground and converts it into usable energy, are present in the construction at Haileybury College.

Managing director Paul Newland called the building “a flagship project”.
“They wanted a building with ample natural daylight while complying with or exceeding the key standards that lower energy use, increase efficiency and ensure that daily use of the building maximises upon its self-sufficiency,” he said.

“The team involved hope to inspire others to approach their build projects, whether a public building, school or private home, with the same motivation, an eye on the future and a desire for change.”
