Hard Flooring

Wooden floor on the concrete base

i'm looking to replace the current concrete floor as it doesn't have damp proof.
Then I want to install engineered wood floor. What layers would have to be installed and in what order? Looking to estimate ate how much mess and cost all that would involve.
