Part of the area of concern is 24' x 48'. In this area is an apartment and an office on the 2nd floor. The next area is 24' x 48' and has one floor open to the peak of the roof. The roof is insulationed with fiberblass between the purlins. IN the 2nd floor I also have a drop ceiling. There is also a ridge vent along the peak of the roof. Will cellulose blown in tightly in place of the fiberglass stop the condensation problem. The contractor says he can install a netting material below the purlins to hold the blown in insulation? In the open bay the humidity runs around 68% and in the apartment area the humidity runs about 40% with a humidifier.

This sounds like a stack affect issue, leaky building, HVAC leakage or poor insulation practices. Without seeing the location. My advice would be for you to call a certified RESNET...
