Specialist Facade Inspections Ltd is proud to partner with Dragons Rugby for the 2020/21 season.

External cladding system specialists, Specialist Façade Inspections (SFI), have partnered with Dragons Rugby again for the 2020/2021 season.

The Newbridge-based company, which provides full cladding fire testing and inspection services including external wall fire reviews to determine compliance with building safety regulations, have become a Gold Partner of the regional rugby club.

SFI also provide design and tendering contracts for the installation of new and refit cladding systems and, through the partnership, will use their expertise to make a significant contribution to the home of the Dragons. The company will design, project manage and install the reclad of the main grandstand at Rodney Parade.

Josh Tedstone, Director of Specialist Façade Inspections (SFI), said: “We are excited to partner with Dragons Rugby this season. As a local business with strong family values and community ties, we feel it is increasingly important to support the community as we continue to live through unprecedented times.

“We are proud to assist our local sporting team who bring inspiring, new developments from the grassroots game, the academy and age grade system to the professional level and are fortunate to be able to create something special through the reclad project at Rodney Parade. Everyone at SFI is both humbled and excited to be a part of this journey.”

Jonathan Westwood, Commercial Director at Dragons Rugby, said: “It’s great news that Josh and the SFI team have committed to extending their partnership with Dragons Rugby especially during such challenging times. Josh and his family have been involved with Dragons Rugby for many years and their willingness to collaborate with us is hugely warming.

“SFI are integral in assisting us with major improvements at Rodney Parade to further improve the consumer and match day experience.”
