We present the construction of constraint HMC algorithms for gauge-Higgs models in order to measure the effective Higgs potential. In particular we focus on SU(2) Gauge-Higgs Unification models in five dimensions. Previous simulations have identified regions in the Higgs phase of these models which have properties of 4D adjoint or Abelian Higgs models. We want to test this relationship by comparing the effective potentials in five and four dimensions.
