Tech expansions: Wacom in Vancouver, Dexter+Chaney in Seattle

Not everyone’s slowing down spending.

Construction-management software company Dexter+Chaney today announced that it has doubled the size of its Lake City offices with a second building, adding 12,000 square feet of space. The company has 72 employees; the space won’t lead to a jump in headcount but will provide room for growth.

To the south, Wacom this month is moving into a new facility that nearly triples the size of its presence in Vancouver. Wash. The computer peripherals maker is based in Japan, but Vancouver serves as its headquarters for North and South America and a shipping hub.

Wacom added 24,000 square feet to its 13,000-square-foot facility. It employs 101, including 30 added over the past three years, spokeswoman Jennifer Fields said. They include administrative and customer support staff, distribution center workers and engineers who produce drive software for all of Wacom’s products.
