Track record in the construction industry
A track record is a history of past performance or accomplishment – or lack of it – the totality of which may give a third party a good idea of the future performance potential of the subject in question. The term derives from the racetrack, an athlete who has won many races is said to have a ‘good track record’ and converse will be the case if they have lost more races than they have won. Also, an athlete may have the ‘track record’ for the 400m hurdles, meaning they hold the record for the fastest time to complete that event.
