About this project

 ADA Directory: Why we need YOU: 

We are seeking financial support to cover the cost of production, programming & marketing for the American Disabilities Act (ADA) Directory website that will go live very soon. We want to dedicate full time to this project in order to create a professional, reliable and helpful resource for accessibility remediation in the US.
This ADA Directory will help individuals with disabilities achieve greater access across America.

Goal for this site:
ADA Directory will create a resource for all professional services, manufacturers and stores related to ADA Compliance throughout the U.S.
ADA Directory will help everyone in need of ADA Compliance resources with ADA Compliance sites, forums and blogs.

History and Background:
Franck Vialy has worked with and been associated professionally with architects and Certified Accessible Specialists (CASp) in the ADA construction field for the last 15 years.

Over ten years ago Franck Vialy independently created and designed a website www.ada-compliance.com that combined Title II and III of the American with Disability Act of 1990 to the present day (ADA) compliance code in a highly organized format, making it easy to search through. Franck Vialy has been involved with internet marketing for the last 25 years.

 This site is now receiving an average of 10,000 visitors per month.

This site also compiles business guidelines for small businesses, existing facilities and contains helpful articles, checklists, investigative agencies and much more…

To complete this site and to provide as much current ADA news as possible, Franck Vialy has dedicated himself for several years to start, design and research ADA news for his ADA blog www.ada-service.com, combining diverse ADA issues and ADA Compliance stories.

These sites became popular immediately and have assisted hundreds of thousands of people and businesses to date. When the website published a telephone number, our ADA compliance team immediately received hundreds of calls regarding demand for service and manufacturing problems related to ADA.

Not only were ADA compliant signs, door hardware, ramps, handrails, and many other items in demand, equally as important were callers looking for ADA Compliant Contractors and Specialists. The demand for information in these and so many other ADA related categories became absolutely overwhelming. This is when Franck Vialy decided to start a comprehensive online ADA Compliant Business Directory.
