 WESTON UNDERTAKES $7 MILLION CLOSURE OF HISTORIC LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT MANUFACTURING COMPLEX; TO SURVEY, LEVEL AND REMEDIATE COMPLEX IN BURBANK
 WEST CHESTER, Pa., July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Roy F. Weston, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTNA) (WESTON)(R) today announced it was awarded a two-year, $7 million contract by Lockheed Corporation (NYSE: LK) of Los Angeles, to manage the demolition and environmental cleanup of its former aircraft manufacturing facility in Burbank, Calif.
 Under the contract, WESTON, a nationwide environmental services firm, is responsible for field sampling and surveying the 75-acre, multi-building site for asbestos and residual chemicals. In addition, the team headed by WESTON will oversee the remediation of any contaminated structures and will serve as construction manager during demolition.
 Pioneering the aerospace industry, Lockheed began its Burbank operations in 1928 building wooden airframes, progressing to sophisticated military and commercial jet aircraft over the following decades. During the 1940's, more than 120,000 men and women, working three shifts a day, produced thousands of fighters, bombers and transports for the World War II effort.
 According to John A. Chicca, WESTON vice president, WESTON's assignment supports Lockheed's goal to make the property available for subsequent commercial redevelopment.
 WESTON is a full-service environmental engineering, design and consulting firm providing nationwide analytical services, consulting and engineering, remediation, facility construction and operations, technical information management and major program services. The company is headquartered in West Chester, and operates a national network of 45 offices including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Boston, Atlanta and Washington.
