patching existing hole in floor from former toilet drain


I have converted a former bathroom into office space. The floor is 3/4 ply with basement below. What is the best method to close up the hold that is left behind from the toilet drain?

The floor is currently just the wood subfloor. I am going to be doing carpet tile over it.

cut a square 3/4 blank plywood square slightly larger than existing hole, lay this over hole and draw outline on floor. cut out new hole. make another square3/4 several inches larger than new hole, glue and screw to underside of hole. Take first square and glue and screw into hole. you can skim gaps in edges with adhesive or skim compound. for added strength if needed you can add blocking from basement under 3/4 support piece by nailing joist to joist
