What would be damage to other property has been much debated. It would appear that an electrical sub-contractor whose defective work positively malfunctioned and caused a fire which damaged other parts of the building could be held liable in negligence for such damage. There are differing decisions on the application of the complexstructures theory. In Jacobs v Morton and Partners [I9941 72 BLR 92, it was decided that if the part: had been constructed by a separate contractor from the main contractor had retained its separate identity, for example a boiler, and had positively malfunctioned inflicting the damage, for example the boiler had exploded, then the theory could apply.

3 If under the terms of the contract, for example JCT 80 clause 26, as a result of the actions of the employer the contractor is prevented from utilizing his resources on other work, and can prove that he could have done so, then the anticipated loss of profit on such other work is recoverable for the period when he was so prevented (Peak Construction Iliverpool) Ltd v McKinney Foundations Ltd [I9701 1 BLR 111). Under the 6th and 7th editions of the ICE conditions the term 'costs' is defined as 'all expenditure properly incurred or to be incurred whether on or off the Site including overhead finance and other charges properly allocable thereto but does not include any allowance for profit'.

Sadly firms are only likely to believe this when they see it being done in practice.
