Screeding, underfloor heating pipes and wet room decisions approach...
Floor heating design shows pipes laid across the whole area which will need a bit of juggling to accommodate the shower waste.
The tile showrooms offer various sizes of pre-formed trays at moderately exorbitant prices. With dry screed I imagine a skilled screeder could create the falls within the tolerances needed for tiling.
My other surprise is that the *tanking membrane* is actually a cement based roll on mix rather than the expected plastic sheet.
I know Tim posted his experiences with setting out his wetroom but is there any other helpful experience in here?

Haven't read all the previous stuff, but we bought a pre-formed wet room tray which works well, but we forgot to put a slight slope on the rest of the floor so if water gets outside the tray it can go more or less anywhere.
We had a wood floor with the tray, then a waterproof flooring material (tanking membrane) over everything and up the walls to skirting height. This was a plastic (or similar) sheet.
Apart from the lack of slope on the main floor everything seems good.

I have looked at those. I'd like to put slopes on the entire room which is only 2.25x1.6m. Pre-formed trays don't seem to go that big.
Also the tile showroom kit had a very low quality waste trap which frightened me a bit. Might be OK for a boarded 2nd floor job where you have some chance of future access.

Would also suggest using a straight down type shower head, a handholdable type in a wetroom is asking for trouble. DAMHIKTs.
