This decision was supported by the Court of Appeal and Baron Channell said, at page 852: ‘The contract was that the house should be completed and fit for occupation by the 1 August 1858, not that the works therein before mentioned should be completed by that day. I think that, looking at the terms of the contract, it would not be reasonable to read it as if it excluded all work not specifically mentioned. ’ The conclusion to be drawn from these decisions is that it was possible to contract to provide either a whole item, in this case a house complete, dry and fit for occupation, or work comprising a schedule of components.

Acceptance by conduct of the terms and conditions in a counter-offer can apply in situations other than by the subcontractor starting work, such as by the contractor admitting the subcontractor to site. Such a situation is likely when the negotiations between the parties have been lengthy and, while significant agreement has been reached, the contractor has yet to conclude an agreement. Such conditions are likely to arise where the contractor fails to integrate the planning of procurement with the on-site activities and progress.

There is an obligation on both parties on finding a discrepancy in the documents, or as a result of a change in statutory requirements, to notify the other party.
