What is an ADA Contractor?

What is an ADA Contractor?

16 June 2021 By Admin

Since the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law in 1990, building owners and business operators have struggled to make sure their properties are compliant. As an ADA contractor, 54% of our work is helping people who have already lost an ADA non-compliance lawsuit. But what do we mean when we use the term ADA contractor? The answer is simple. ADA construction work is the only work we do! We know this field inside and out and are committed to constant training to ensure we are up to date with all of the latest requirements for ADA compliance.

Why Can't I Hire a General Contractor?

Many people wonder why they need to go to the effort of seeking out an ADA contractor instead of just having any general contractor or construction company carry out their ADA construction project. You can, of course, go down this route if you choose but let us share some of the reasons why it can be a wiser decision to look for an experienced ADA contractor instead!

Let's start with an eye-opening statistic. At Protrk Construction, approximately 25% of the work we undertake is redoing work completed by other contractors that will not pass a CASp inspection. When you choose Protrk as your ADA contractor, you are getting the job done right - the first time around! Commercial building owners and business operators across the Bay Area trust us to help them avoid an ADA lawsuit.

We are by no means saying that other contractors are setting out to do non-compliant work intentionally, but the thing that is important to remember is that when it comes to ADA guidelines, there is very little margin for error. Even 1/16 of an inch of a difference in your materials can be the difference between compliance and non-compliance. At Protrk, we are up to date with every change dictated by ADA law and the California State Building Code.

Will I Need Another Contractor Too?

At Protrk Construction, we aim to provide our clients with a full-service one-stop shop for ADA construction work. Our design-build process covers every aspect of your ADA Compliant project, from a Third Party CASp report to As-Built Drawings and construction documents. We believe that one call should do it all. As a self-performing contractor, our directly employed team will work on your project with minimal subcontractors. This gives you direct access to one specialized team with extensive knowledge of ADA construction. You only have to deal with one company for the duration of the project. There is no passing the buck from architect to contractor and back again. We take full accountability for all aspects of the project, ensuring less stress and more accuracy.
