Materials for a new bouldering gym?

Hello, I'm a newbie here and I'm looking for information on building an indoor bouldering gym. (I swear I've looked through tons of post to find my answer...)

I'm working with 2 partners who are much more avid rock climbers than I am, but I am the brains of the operation and so I'm trying to find a distributor and a vendor. I think we have decided on steel frames, but I've seen lots of different types of walls.

Do you have any suggestions as to where I could purchase the wood and flooring for this operation? I wish there was some sort of complete bouldering gym package! haha..
thanks in advance! Smile

For anyone with experience opening a bouldering gym, if you could tell me what your approximate cost of material was, that would be awesome.
