If you must have your utilities in the concrete floor, then have the
concrete guys form a utility gutter in the floor, say 6"-8" wide, 3"-4"
deep, covered by a removable steel grate.
Lay conduits, water lines, airlines, whatever in the gutter, then cover
You now have a way of servicing these utility feeds, if necessary.
Definitely a more costly type of construction.
