Would this not depend on who the 3rd Party was under contract to?

If this “thrid party” was a Subcontractor to the Contractor they would not be an “Other” as defined in the ECC, but a “Subcontractor” and it would not be a comoensation event.

However, you have identified what I consider to be weakness in the definition of an “Other” as by the current definition it could be anybody who is not the Employer, Project Manager, Supervisor, Adjudicator, or employee, Subcontractor or supplier of the Contractor. Consequently, an “Other” does not need to be in contract with the Employer to deliver works or services associated with the contract / same project which I think is a deficiency of the contract.

So the answer to your question is “No”.
