Gainesville, FL, February 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI) will host its fourth certification seminar for Defective Drywall Inspection and Remediation. The Institute’s defective drywall program will certify inspectors, consultants, project managers, and remediators (contractors) through specialized instruction and hands-on training.
The certification seminar is being held on March 2-3, 2010 at the Embassy Suites Hotel located at 1100 Southeast 17th Street in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
The institute, from its conception, has understood that standardization of protocols for inspection and remediation of defective drywall are crucial to providing a viable solution for owners suffering the effects of defective “corrosive” drywall. The Institute’s program was developed to help owners, financial institutes, insurance companies, investors and builders recover from the stigma of defective drywall.
The Building Envelope Science Institute, the Defective Drywall In America workgroup and active members of the institute have diligently been working with the inspection and remediation protocols, simply referred to as the “BESI System,” since there completion in October 2009 to develop cost effective protocols with the highest standard of quality and effectiveness. Based on rigorous standards, the “BESI System” offers the most comprehensive protocol for remediation of defective drywall; the foundation is proven science. Furthermore, the BESI remediation protocol for defective drywall considers the following dynamics when addressing a building with defective drywall: corrosion issues, cross-contamination of other building materials, decontamination of personal belongings, an indoor air quality monitoring program, and a proposed national warranty (not an insurance policy). The institute has a pending patent on the BESI System’s remediation protocol.
This certification program being offered by the Institute (BESI) instructs and trains licensed and approved state contractors in the remediation of defective or corrosive drywall.

The Building Envelope Science Institute has a “Nationwide Directory of Members” that currently allows individuals to locate BESI certified defective drywall inspectors and remediators in their area and to compare the services offered by these companies before making the right choice.
