Dricore question

Guys, I'm planning on laying down dricore panels in my basement, I have a few questions. I have two steel support columns that I plan on boxing out with stone vener lowers and trim molding for the uppers, do I frame these columns in first and anchor them to the concrete floor and then cut the dricore to fit around or do I install all the dricore first and then frame these in and have them sit atop the dricore?

I will also be doing the same stone veners on the end of a bar which will require me to make a pony wall, again I have the same question will it be better to anchor the 2x6 I plan on using for a bottom plate to the concrete with tapcons, frame the pony wall, and then cut the dricore to fit around or place the wall atop the dricore?

I am thinking the wall and the base would be much more stable and move less is attached to the concrete. Attached is a pic of my basement project with the two columns I speak of. Thanks in advance for any help

I'd frame the items to the floor. and "float" the dricore around it.

it would be much more of a pain to affix to the dricore since you would need to secure the dricore the floor if you affixed the wall and column cladding to the dricore.

It would be much more of a discomfort to adhere to the dricore since you would need to protected the dricore the ground if you fitted the walls and line cladding to the dricore.
