The new facility houses two full-size MVP basketball courts, which is the most advanced floor system on the market.  The MVP is designed to specifically eliminate fatigue that can result in player injury.

Not only was Floors, Inc. chosen as a finalist for the size of the project and their dedication to selling & installing the best floor suited for the team, they were also chosen for customer satisfaction. In a letter of recommendation received from Karen S. Umlauf,  Senior Director, Basketball Administration for the Bulls, she writes about the excellent experience with the team at Floors, Inc. and the floor stating that “I am writing to you in regards to the high quality your workers and company  performed installing the wood athletic flooring in the basketball courts of our new Chicago Bulls Training Facility. The finished product proves that your workers and  management team are of the highest quality professionals in your industry.  The new wood athletic floor is certainly a center piece to the new facility, and the  expertise your firm showed throughout the entire project is appreciated. The Chicago Bulls are very happy with the new floor, and we look forward to a continued  professional relationship with Floors Incorporated.”

We congratulate Floors, Inc. on another fantastic job and wish them luck as a finalist in the Sports Surface of the Year contest which closes on March 1, 2016!
