Jobs lost as Green Design Group in liquidation

A COCKERMOUTH architects firm has gone into liquidation, with the loss of 14 jobs.
Green Design Group, which operated from Dovenby Hall, was placed into liquidation last Friday by accountancy firm Rowlands.
Rowlands said the company had gone into liquidation because of difficult market conditions.
Green Design Group was established in 1978 in Cockermouth and expanded in 1989 when it set up a second practice in Brampton, near Carlisle.
Following the 2009 floods it was one of the first businesses on Cockermouth’s Main Street to become operational again, but due to structural damage to surrounding buildings it had to move to Dovenby Hall.
The company has worked on notable projects, including the production of plans for the redevelopment of Cockermouth’s Kirkgate Centre and Riversmeet buildings, and a new boathouse for Maryport’s Inshore Rescue team. It was also part of Cockermouth’s shopfront heritage scheme.
Tony Green, managing director, declined to comment.
