Over the last 12 months, our working lives have changed in several important ways. One thing the pandemic has taken away from us all is the unique joy of working side by side with other people. Remote work has been made possible thanks to recent advances in technology, and it was certainly necessary during 2020 because of the pandemic, but now we’re starting to return to normality. We’re finally getting back to the office.
If your business has been displaced by COVID and you’re looking for new premises in which to set up shop, what do your options look like? Office space in a town or city centre is always an attractive prospect in theory, but it’s often overpriced and you also have to worry about sorting out everything from the electricity to the security yourself. That’s why Farnborough Business Park could be just the solution you’re looking for.
What is a business park?
Whereas many city centre office buildings were initially designed to be multipurpose spaces, the sole purpose of a business park is to house offices and businesses of all shapes. They are often located on main roads for optimal access and are furnished with everything you’ll need to hit the ground running with your enterprise, whatever its size.
Farnborough Business Park is set among stunning open landscaped spaces and pioneering architecture. Our park is strategically located minutes from the M3 and is integrated with the neighbouring heart centre. But what are the real-world benefits of setting up your business at Farnborough Business Park?
