First thing I'd do is make sure the unit could be brought in without tearing out doors or tearing down walls. As far as the floor goes you need a firm level subfloor. If you have picked out a Brand go to manufactures website many have their instruction manuals in pdf. downloads.

Wouldn't hurt to use a layer of sand under the new tub. Place building paper on the floor first. After you get the unit in the room as mentioned. They are pretty big. I've put them in new installs but no remodels. You need a very large area (door and room) to get it in place.
