Dover's wooden 'Family Stand' at their Crabble ground. Completed in 2017Dartford isn't an all wooden stadium. The terracing is concrete and the only wooden structure I recall seeing (not sure about the roof?) is the figure of a man opposite the main stand. I'm assuming that FGR mean that the terracing will be wooden.
Quote from the construction industry :-
Generally, timber construction spectator stands have been purposefully avoided over the last few decades, following the devastating fire at Bradford City’s grounds in 1985. Modern uses of timber in the form of glulaminated elements and prefabricated structural timber panels have meant fire resistance properties now exceed those of many steel alternatives which have been used for the past 30 years.
