Spanish term or phrase: Piso: Material noble (Cemento hormigon)
The floors of the school in Peru are made from this material..... For material noble, I am finding "Hardwood"-I am wondering if part of the school might have hardwood over the concrete/cement slabs-Maybe office areas????? Any ideas or suggestions????

Flooring: durable (reinforced concrete)
Explanation:
I found lots of references to other materials as well as wood which can be termed noble. This extract (about bricks) makes me think the cemento hormigon IS the material referred to.

Si hablamos de calidad, sus productos de gres, son de un material noble, inalterable e idóneo para combinarlo con otros como la madera, la pizarra o el hormigón.
