Trent DeWitt of Super Sky works atop the Maui Arts & Cultural Center's Yokouchi Family Pavilion and Courtyard concert pavilion Friday afternoon in Kahului with Jon Camplin.
DeWitt's grandfather, Super Sky owner Frank Lowry, said his grandson is unafraid of heights.
"All my grandsons work for me," Lowry said. "They've been walking on glass since they were 5 or 6 years old. They've grown up with the business."

Trent DeWitt of Super Sky reaches for a 150-pound piece of translucent glass as he and Jon Camplin work atop the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Yokouchi Family Pavilion and Courtyard concert pavilion Friday afternoon in Kahului.
A battery-powered suction cup device is used to hold the sections of glass as crane operator Ty Kunishige of Pacific Pile and Crane delivers them to the top of the structure.
The $12.8 million project is scheduled to be finished by this summer.
When completed, it will feature the concert pavilion, a dining area, seven built-in bars, two prep kitchens, restrooms and a second-floor, 3,000-foot gathering space with courtyard and harbor views.
The project provides employment for 155 workers.
