For a second time in 2 years, we are delighted to share very electrifying news: Godfrey Martin is back working at Electric Avenue, the iconic shopping area in Brixton referred to in Eddy Grant’s song ‘Electric Avenue’.

We have secured the Repairs and Improvements to the shop fronts and facades of two adjoining Victorian properties at 19-21 and 23, Electric Avenue London, SW9.

Project Type: Retail and Residential Refurbishment

Client: Shan Investments Ltd

Contract Administrators: Murray John Architects

Project Duration: 14 weeks

The works will commence in early August and will consist of roof repairs, brick repairs, new joinery, reforming of the shopfronts and new doors to flats. We are also carrying out basement remedial works, external façade restoration works and external decorations and repairs to the distinctive decorative features and granite-clad pilasters.

Electric Avenue is an iconic market street, and Lambeth Council is partly funding these works under the Brixton Heritage Townscape Initiative.

We will be working alongside Murray John Architects Ltd.
