Eigg lays off all staff as debtors crack the group

Interiors and architecture consultancy Eigg has gone into voluntary liquidation with the loss of five jobs after the non-payment of bills by two clients.

Co-founder Daniel Lister, who had a 20 per cent holding in the company, is considering his options, one of which is starting up an interiors consultancy. He is in discussions with two former Eigg designers about the venture, he says. He also claims to have had offers from two architectural practices to ‘advise’ on interiors.

Eigg, which has worked for Liverpool Football Club, Compass Group and Yorkshire Television, was owed money by two clients.

It is understood to have been in dispute with one client over payment for completed work. Another had delayed payment for on-going work, Lister claims.’There was also a disagreement at board level on the future direction of the consultancy,’ he adds.

Lister says he will continue working with former Eigg clients, though he declines to disclose which companies. One is understood to be a Premier League football club.

Eigg, located in Manchester, was formed in 1998 and became a limited company in 1999.
