The North East Hampshire town of Farnborough is a busy place. Its facilities have steadily and continually expanded, making it a popular destination for businesses as well as homeowners. It’s why Curchod & Co are delighted to offer so many commercial property options in and around the town.
Farnborough has long been associated with aviation, with the first powered flight in Britain taking place at Farnborough Airport in 1908 to hosting the internationally renowned biennial Farnborough airshow which has been held in the town since 1948. From its roots in aviation, this town has fostered strong links with the defence industry and aeronautical technology.
The rise of Farnborough is in a large part down to its location. It is easily accessed from two junctions of the M3, making travel by road extremely straightforward from both London and the South. By rail, the town is directly linked with London, Portsmouth, Reading and Gatwick. For those on private business flights, Farnborough airport enables direct access to the town. The ease and variety of accessibility that Farnborough offers to businesses and businesspeople make it a uniquely dynamic town outside of London. This is reflected in the high standard of office space that is offered through Curchod & Co.
Farnborough is well known for its out of town business park locations. Taking a model reminiscent of Silicon Valley, Cody Technology Park offers restaurant and gym facilities and a subsidised bus service to the town centre and rail station. This makes the location uniquely able to benefit from the connectivity of Farnborough’s location while making the most of the substantial floor areas that out of town locations can offer.
The businesses who have already made Cody Technology Park their home are a testament to how well this campus model works. Not only do the facilities benefit a workforce, but the structure of the park enables heightened security for businesses. With defence organisations such as QinetiQ, Boeing and Airbus rubbing shoulders with technology, data and utility firms, it is clear that security provision is an increasing priority across industries. For this reason, we at Curchod & Co expect these commercial locations to continue to prosper.
Similarly facilitated with shuttle transport, hotel, restaurants and an independently managed nursery provision, this campus structured business park connects social benefits to the inhabiting businesses. The park is situated in landscaped grounds and plays host to community events and even a heritage quarter which houses the FAST (Farnborough Air Sciences Trust) museum.
This business park is unique in its construction. It combines listed buildings with purpose-built Grade A offices, with public access. With healthcare, engineering, financial and media organisations choosing this location it is clear to us at Curchod & Co that the flexibility that the business park offers has a wide-reaching appeal.

Any time we start something new it is exciting and we are very motivated and committed. As time goes by, however, the burst of enthusiasm can wane as the reality of how much work is going to be involved kicks in. When you find yourself slacking a little and not being as enthused about the new change or goal you are working towards, that isn’t a sign to quit. It is a sign that it is time to re-commit.Meet the team
