These cork floors really impress me considering not only have many been around for 70-80 years, but the benefits are there. Comfortable to walk/stand on, durable, can be refinished, sound absorbant and more.

They look fantastic! Not too much call for cork but who know? Maybe the next big thing like bamboo!

Never been in that building, or any UT, building to do work. I have only been inside the Texas Memorial Museum, on the UT campus.


It is a nightmare to work down there. You have to unload and carry all your tools and anything you don't want stollen, for at least a mile. Then you have to load it all back up at the end of the day. 1½ hours in the morning, & 1½ hours in the evening, just to unload and load tools and your debris.
