What: Walla Walla Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons expansion. Dr. Antonio Caso said it's actually going to be a new facility for them. "Kind of like a duplex." The new section will be a much larger space, about 3800-square-feet, an increase from the current 1800-square-foot location. After the office moves into the new facility, the plan is to lease out the former office space. Caso said it was just time to expand. The new office will better accommodate new equipment and a more efficient workflow. Dr. Caso said they will be going to an electronic records system, and the new building "will be better able to handle those capabilities."

Contractor: Opp & Seibold General Construction Inc.
Cost: About $950,000.
Timeline: "We broke ground in October and hopefully it will be move-in ready by the end of May," Caso said.
