Flooring for workshop

A friend just had a Lestor bldg put up but the guys
that did the cement floor didn't do a very good job
leveling the floor.
He had planned to put down vinyl squares for flooring
but now is worried about the uneveness.
For examle - where the grooves are, the edges are
higher than the rest of the floor. I think the outside
corners are a different levels. It doesn't look bad but
say when you put up a ladder in different places you can tell.
So now he's thinking of some sort of prefabricated system
where you put the floor on a foam product so the squares
can float.
Has anyone had a similar experience they dealt with and
had a successful conclusion? Or tried something in a similar
situation that they have been unhappy with the results?
Thanks,
Mary
P.S. he's looking for something nice but workshopish and
not too expensive.

get some self leveling cement and pour it on the floor. it should level it out, as this is what the flooring folks use to even out floors before tiling.
