BESI Holds Its First Annual Conference, Training Seminar & Exhibition on
Defective “Chinese” Drywall
The Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI) has held training seminars on Defective Drywall
throughout Florida and in New Orleans. The institute reached a milestone, just nine months after
being launched, it surpassed 100 certified members with nearly half being dual certified - the
institute is experiencing remarkable growth.
Gainesville, FL, September 04, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI) is
hosting its First Annual Conference, Training Seminar & Exhibition for Defective “Chinese” Drywall
Inspection and Remediation. This special event will be held on October 24-27, 2010 at the Hilton Fort
Lauderdale Marina located at 1881 SE 17th Street Causeway in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
The institute recognizes the importance of providing proper training and education for those performing
inspections and remediation on structures with defective drywall; and to this cause has held conferences
throughout Florida since October 2009 providing excellent training to qualified individuals to convey the
knowledge and skills necessary for performing inspections and remediation on homes and commercial
buildings that were constructed with defective drywall.
The protocol offered through BESI provides (to-date) the most comprehensive remediation process that
was developed based on proven science and considers the following major factors: corrosion,
cross-contamination of other building materials, personal belongings, IAQ monitoring program, a
national warranty, and removal of the stigma from having defective drywall. It's good to know that if your
home is remediated under this protocol it would not require additional work in order to meet the CPSC's
interim guidance or to be aligned with Judge Fallon's Finding of Fact & Conclusions of Law (Case No.
09-6687). The Institute has a document that helps explain the protocol called, “The BESI System:
Understanding the Protocols for Defective Drywall” which is
