Building Envelope Science Institute Holds Training Conference for Defective
Drywall in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
The “BESI System” offers the most comprehensive remediation; the protocol was developed based
on proven science and considers the following major factors: corrosion, cross-contamination of
other building materials, personal belongings, IAQ monitoring program, and a proposed national
warranty (not an insurance policy).
Gainesville, FL, February 17, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI) will
host another certification seminar for Defective Drywall Inspection and Remediation. The certification
class will be held on March 2-3, 2010 at the Embassy Suites Hotel located at 1100 Southeast 17th Street
in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
The institute has understood from its conception that standardization of inspection and remediation
protocols are essential to provide a viable solution for those owners suffering the effects of defective
“corrosive” drywall. The Institute's protocols were developed to help owners, insurance companies,
investors, financial institutes, and builders recover from the stigma of having defective “corrosive”
Charlie Jones, board member for BESI, stated that “the institute has developed a cost effective protocol
that can certify the remediation of defective “corrosive” drywall.” The Institute, the Defective Drywall In
America workgroup and active members of the institute have been working diligently with the protocols
referred to as the “BESI System” since there completion in October 2009 and the first training conference
held in Orlando, Florida that same month.
The “BESI System” has been fine-tuned over the past few months, and as a result of the constant review
process the cost of completing a remediation with the institute's protocol for remediation of defective
drywall has been reduced without compromising the integrity or effectiveness of the system.
