- What is audio-video
Also known as electography, it is an
above-ground audio and visual record of the construction site.
Pre-construction video records conditions before any materials are delivered
and before any work begins. This record includes but is not limited to
interiors of homes and businesses, driveways, foundations, sidewalks,
landscaping, utilities, manholes, existing conditions in ditches, ponding in
crop fields, curbs and road surfaces. Progress electography records conditions
as a project is under way. Post-construction video provides a record of the
site after all work and restoration have been completed. Please note that
electography is not the same as "TV-ing", which is the internal
video-taping of sewer pipe. CVM does not do any work underground.
Often less than the cost of replacing a
single driveway (and certainly less than replacing several). Although CVM's
equipment is on the cutting edge of technology, our prices remain
competitively low. Just contact us and we'll be happy to send you a quote on
- Why should I use
Engineers can approach claims with total
confidence, knowing that an accurate record of the site exists. Contractors
can be more confident their liabilities will be minimized when they approach a
jobsite before or after other contractors have been there, and are more
responsive in correcting complaints when they are conclusively proven.
Property owners, aware that an accurate record is available, are restricted
from making fraudulent or exaggerated claims. Electography is a cost-effective
insurance that saves time and money for all parties, and can help preserve
your valuable reputation.

so that an exact read-out of coordinates appears on your audio-video record.
