Moving Plumbing in Concrete Slab Ceiling


I would like to move a toilet sewer service in a slab that is the ceiling to the garage, as well as the floor for the next level. The pipes are exposed in the garage.

Post a picture---do you know if this is a post tensioned slab?

In the old days we figured each core drill was going to cost $100 an inch to replace--
