Electric Outlets under wood flooring
unless you own the space below this floor, it most likely is not going to happen. To install floor receps, you would have to cut a hole into the concrete for a junction box to fit into. Then, you would need to drill completely through the floor and access the box from the floor below. That means, your wiring would be within the lower tenants space. Most likely not a possibility.
Now, depending on how thick the concrete is, you might be able to cut long trenches into the concrete and lay conduit in them to provide access to the junction box for the recep. Then, depending on how things are laid out, you might have to tear open a wall to be able to connect that conduit to an existing circuit.
so, if neither of those 2 actions sound like possibilities, an extension cord it is.
Now, if this is real new and the concrete hasn't been poured yet, it would not the that difficult to install the floor receps. Nothing money won't fix anyway.
