Barfield Prep School welcomed a visit by the mayor of Farnham, Cllr Alan Earwaker, to open its new dining hall on Monday, April 22.

Sustainable construction firm TG Escapes designed and built the new hall using modular construction methods in just four months, allowing children to continue their education.

The bespoke timber building offers panoramic views across the school’s grounds and plenty of natural light through its floor-to-ceiling windows.

It is a low energy ‘A’ rated building with solar panels on the roof, air source heat pumps, active ventilation and heat recovery, and LED lighting.

It boasts a commercial kitchen with cold and dry stores, pot wash area, office, toilet, plant room and a veranda overlooking the headteacher’s lawn.

Andy Boyle, Barfield headmaster, said: “Thanks to TG Escapes we now have a beautifully designed eco-friendly functional building for everyone at the school to enjoy and benefit from.”
