What Trade Installs Floor Drains??

Might seem a dumb question but what trade would one hire to install a floor drain in a basement? Plumber is the obvious guess, but it would involve concrete work too, no? Especially getting the slope right? What about a "wet basement guy"?
We have upper and lower basements. Lower has a floor drain, upper does not, but upper does have rough in for bathroom. Seems to me that any basement should have a floor drain.
Thanks.

The principal of the TV show Holmes on Homes uses specialist subcontractors for plumbing (and electrical work, gyproc, painting, etc.): but the principal claims to be himself expert in concrete for indoor use e.g. basements (while he contracts out outdoor drain and concrete work.)

I'd call the plumber. They all have occasion to do concrete work.

A note of caution: I grew up in an urban area with city sewers. Our house had a drain in the basement floor. My dad had a headstone nearby. I remember a helluva storm where all the power went out and the streets were flooding. Dad put a big stack of newspapers over the drain and set the headstone on top. We ended up getting a litle water near the drain but we had neighbors who had water all the way up to the basement ceiling. I remember dad saying later that he had been very concerned that the pressure on the pipe between the drain and the sewer could burst because of the increased pressure. BTW, the house was probably built in 1925-1930. All this verbage just to give you something to consider.

The way I heard it is the house would float away. To the topic, some plumbers won't do concrete, and some electricians won't patch plaster/drywall. But they'll get somebody to do it. I met the plumber I ended up working for when I hired him to clear a basement drain. He parked a towed compressor in the alley and dragged a 100 pound jackhammer and hose into the basement. When he lifted the jackhammer and set the tip on the floor it penetrated before he hit the trigger. That's where I first heard of "dry mix" concrete. He did an okay job of patching when he was finished. That was probably before they started using a saw to cut a clean line. I'd guess the plumbers who advertise they do sewer work can all handle concrete and cut clean lines in a basement.

Already have one in the lower basement. If the sewers back up all the way to the upper basement I'll probably be building an ark.
I wonder if Mr. Holmes would come over if I called him?
