West Palm’s Whitney doing drywall test

July 08, 2009 12:33PM

The builder of the Whitney condominium in downtown West Palm Beach plans to test all 210 units in the complex following initial tests that found defective Chinese-made drywall in half of the samples. Residents were notified by e-mail by property manager Paul Wilkis, who also sent the initial results from Thonotosassa-based A2L Technologies, the environmental testing firm. Bovis Lend Lease, which built the project, plans to do its own tests over the next two weeks.
