Pay It  Forward Project

 Concrete Steps
Solid Ground Concrete has been so blessed by great success and wonderful customers.  In 2016 we started a Pay -it-forward campaign.  We chose a customer in Lockport and surprised them by completing their project at no charge. The family we chose had put their project off for years due to financial reasons. They were finally told by the town that they had to fix their steps and sidewalk.  They called a couple concrete companies explaining their situation.  We were the only ones to return their call.  The home owner was frustrated and concerned about cost, time frame and what can be done to fix his stairs and sidewalk.   He had planned to pay us with his tax return and asked if we could wait to get paid until it came in.  It was that phone call that sprung us into knowing that it was time for us to pay it forward. He was speechless when I told him there was no charge. I only asked that he take his wife out to a nice dinner and a movie instead.  It was a wonderful feeling for both of us. We are truly blessed to be able to share our success.  We look forward to our yearly projects like this.

​Orleans Niagara BOCES

Concrete Construction BOCES
Recently students in Matt Anastasi’s Building Trades Program, at the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center, had some special guests in class. Representatives from Solid Ground Concrete in Lockport came in to show the students how they do stamped concrete and give the students an opportunity to try their hand at it.

A concrete truck came to the back entrance of the class and students took turns wheeling the concrete to several molds that the company set up for them. Owner Tony Fazzolari, along with several of his employees, worked with the students on how to finish the concrete and then stamp it with a pattern. The finished products will be used around the Orleans/Niagara BOCES center.

“This was invaluable for my students,” says Mr. Anastasi. “I can teach them how to do concrete, but these guys do this every day, so they are experts. I think we need more opportunities like this to let the students see what kinds of careers are available to them and what it would be like to follow this career path.”

Mr. Fazzolari says the students did a great job. “We are trying to give them a good idea of what is involved with pouring concrete. I want them to know that sometimes you fight the conditions and the elements can make the process a whole different ballgame. It is very important to make the concrete perfect from the base up. People are paying top dollars for this so there is no room for error.”

Student Jeremy Ribbeck Jr. said, “I found this demonstration very helpful. I haven’t learned any of this stuff yet, so it was very informational to be able to work with it and have them show us their techniques.”
