It depends.  Renovation activities that are performed for free by committee volunteers are not covered under the Rule because they are not “renovations performed for compensation.”  Donations, such as donations of materials or of the time of volunteers, are not compensation.  Conversely, renovation activities that are performed by renovators or firms who are compensated for their services are subject to all requirements under the Rule.  This applies if the committee is compensating anyone for the work (ex. a paid supervisor), even if the committee has non-profit or not-for-profit status.
