How about sewer lines? They clog up and you run a snake. If for some
reason this clogs up, which "shouldn't" happen, could he run a snake?
Otherwise, I'd want the boards covering the pipe to be removable. That's
how I'd do it.
On my system, nothing but fine powder gets to my large pipes and fan,
and they will never, ever clog up. I pre-filter everything and coming
from the ceiling works fine.

Lots of joist / floor sheeting expense. Once the equipment is in place
you're not going to lift the floor sheeting for repairs. Why not cut paths
in the concrete. Grout over. Add cleanouts where a snake with suction and /
or pressure to move the clog can be used for maintenance.
That's great if your shop setup never changes. I've been meaning to
rearrange mine for over a year, but part of the problem I've got is I
have to make room for the stuff I'm moving first. Life intervenes and
suddenly I'm busy with work.
We all get new equipment from time to time, or have a shelf that
rearranges the work shop*. If you're determined to not have stuff
hanging from the ceiling, might as well make it so you can change it
without too much hassle when the time comes.
