Rockin’ a wall

We Rock, Stone Masonry rock finisher Sam Luuloa heaves a chunk of salvaged concrete slab into place while building the inner portion of a retaining wall below Makawao town Tuesday afternoon. The wall is part of an access project to provide pathways and stairs from a parking lot along Brewer Road to Makawao Avenue, emerging by Sherri Reeve Gallery & Gifts. Luuloa said that the recycled concrete made good backfill and would be covered by a rock face. When asked the key to building a solid wall, the 35-year veteran with the Maui company said it came down to two things, “a strong foundation and a good boss.” Later, business owner William Maskell could be heard commending Luuloa for his succinct response.
