What our customers say about The Hickman
Awards winning Whitechapel offices
Why choose The Hickman?
The Smartest Building in London
The Hickman is GPE’s smartest building yet. Sensors are incorporated through the workplace and data feeds back to our bespoke smartphone app, sesame. The app provides continuous, anonymous feedback on occupancy levels, temperature, light levels, air quality, noise and energy use. This data will allow us to work with customers to adapt and optimise the building as their business needs evolve. WiredScore ‘Platinum’ accreditation gestures to the fast and secure internet available.
The Hickman is also able to adapt according to use, meaning we are able to optimise the conditions for occupation reducing energy consumption and associated carbon emissions, whilst improving comfort levels for customers.
Sustainable from the outset
Sustainability, wellbeing and technology are core principals of The Hickman’s design. The refurbished fabric of the existing building has reduced total embodied carbon and our sustainable design has been acknowledged by BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC ‘A’. We avoided introducing too many new materials, preferring to use the inherent properties of the existing and new structural elements, which complement the building’s existing industrial aesthetic and heritage.
A short walk from Aldgate East station, The Hickman benefits from a wide range of amenity but also offers a café within the entrance lobby offering high quality, locally sourced food and drinks. In addition to the park, many of the office floors have an external terrace. A 5,100 sq ft courtyard is also available to all customers. Extensive planting in the courtyard has enhanced biodiversity and air quality, which is supplemented by the use of green roofs. We have provided 79 internal and 25 external cycle spaces, giving the opportunity for exercise during the working day and to commute by bicycle via the ‘cycle superhighway’, which passes the front door of the building.
