The Getrag Ford Transmissions Project

At Wirral Cladding & Roofing Ltd we have established a long working relationship with Ford and we are proud to have been awarded the contract to refurbish one of the largest single roofs in Europe.

Wirral Cladding & Roofing Ltd has completed the entire roof of the Getrag Ford Building, Halewood, Merseyside with a contract cost in the region of £1.8 Million, and it has served as a launch pad for larger roofing project that the company is currently undertaking.

The project has been carried out in 3 phases totalling a roof area of 100,000 square meters of single skin mechanically fixed roofing felt.

The exacting specification of the project required us to specify mechanically fixed single layer felt which was sourced from Troelstra & de Vries in Holland.

The original contract required the works to be carried out over a 3 year period, which has been achieved despite adverse weather conditions during that time. The success of this project has been due to the vast experience and excellent project management skills of all the staff within Wirral Cladding & Roofing.
