The Building Envelope Science Institute’s Second Annual Expert Panel Discussion on Defective
Gainesville, FL, October 19, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI) is a specialized institute dedicated to the advancement of education, specifically designed for the construction industry. The Institute’s first major contribution to the industry is providing solutions to the Defective Drywall crisis that has affected owners in 39 States, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, and Puerto Rico. BESI has provided the most comprehensive instruction and training for inspection and remediation of structures with Defective (Chinese) Drywall since October 2009.

Tremendous progress has been made during the past year by several companies, organizations, and legal counsel regarding the inspection of structures that may or may not have defective drywall, and also the remediation of those structures confirmed as having defective drywall. The term “defective” drywall has many synonyms such as corrosive, tainted, reactive, or Chinese drywall; but all refer to gypsum board that appears to be the source of off-gassing which corrodes copper wiring and cross contaminates other building materials and personal belongings.

The institute is hosting a reception/networking program on Sunday evening from 6-9PM (food & beverages) and expert panel boards on Monday from 9-5PM (lunch is provided); both are open for public participation. The registration fee of $150 is required to ensure that appropriate amounts of food and beverages are available. These events take place on October 24-25, 2010 at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina located at 1881 SE 17th Street Causeway in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The defective drywall discussion consists of six different panels of experts that will cover the following topics: 1) inspections, tool (i.e. XRF), markings, & techniques; panelists are Howard Ersham, Chinese Drywall Screening; Jack Frost, Drywall Science; and Andrew Clements, Clemco Enterprises 2) chemical & scientific analysis of the problem and issues; panelists are Dennis Rose, Total Wall; Ed Light, CIH of Building Dynamics 3) health effects pertaining to defective drywall; panelists are Barbara Manis, M.D., Building Health Sciences; and Dr. Howard Weiner, Medical Assessment Institute 4) remediation, protocols, partial remediation, clearance testing; panelists are Doug Hoffman, NORMI; Scott “Spiderman” Mulholland, US Building Consultants; and Vito Ciaramitaro, Chinese Drywall Experts 5) resale, stigma, warranties, realtor’s concerns, buying & selling; panelists are Chris Burton, National Construction Warranty Corporation; other panelist are pending at this time; and 6) legal issues, preservation of evidence; panelist are Tim Zorc, Chinese Drywall Integrated Solutions; Brian Warwick, Varnell & Warwick, P.A.; Dennis Reich, Reich & Binstock; Jordan Torry, Reich & Binstock.
