hed goes here and here

LOCKPORT – D.R. Chamberlain, a Lockport contracting firm, may start work as soon as next week on interior renovations in Building 4 at Harrison Place, which is expected to become the new home of Trek Inc.

Lockport Corporation Counsel John J. Ottaviano said Tuesday that Chamberlain is to be paid $3,052,000 for asbestos and lead testing, demolition of some interior walls and removal of unused pipes, heating and ventilation equipment and sprinklers.

He said he is confident a final agreement will be reached shortly on a lease for Trek, a Medina electronic instrument maker, to move to the former auto parts plant in downtown Lockport. The tentative deal calls for a 10-year release with a five-year renewal option as well as a purchase option on the 96,000-square-foot building.

Trek, whose research and development branch has been located in Lockport since last year, is expected to bring 72 existing jobs to Lockport while adding 24 more within three years.
