EVstudio also provides construction observations in the Colorado market.

We have a great team that works together to cover the entire Front Range. The team is led by Senior Inspector
Alex Knuth who oversees our  field inspectors and technicians.  The observation team does not work on a Pass/Fail
philosophy; we will work with you to keep construction on schedule and moving forward. This means that we
will not fail your inspection and walk away. We work with contractors during our inspections to discuss and
recommend resolutions to issues as they are observed. Our goal is to keep all parties involved on our projects on
track and profitable.
