Specialists in deconstruction, Octiscapes are keynote speakers for building conferences and are recommended by the City of Vancouver as a point of contact for media and those interested in the deconstruction process.

Pre-1940's homes in Vancouver,  as well as any buildings along the Cambie corridor, or in First Shaughnessy, must be deconstructed. At minimum, 75% of the material must be diverted from landfill through recycling, reuse/salvaging, etc. This increased to 90% for homes deemed "character". According to the City of Vasncouver, "a home is most likely a character building is it was constructed before 1940 and has character features such as: the authentic or period massing, roof  form, front porch, exterior wall materials, window openings and frames and details."

Waste diversion targets for mandatory deconstructions range from 75% to 95%. Whether it's through recycling, reuse, salvage or other diversion, Octiscapes always exceeds targets.
