Adding a new shower


I need help with adding a new shower in high rise building.
I have two piece washroom and would like to change to three/four piece washroom.
How can I do that?

Ok we give up what a two, three or 4, piece bathroom. Is this the number of fixtures?
It's always best to add where you live in your profile. People here could be from all over the world, what works in one place may not work in others.
Your going to have to get a plumber in on this one.
There's going to need to be permits, and if there's a condo association or someone owns this building and your just leasing there going to have to know all about what's going on.

Thanks. I will have a plumber but I still want to know how to do reconnection when you have concrete slab. How the plumber will connect a new shower pumbing to existing piping. It is easy in hose but how it works in high rise?

ok what do you mean by 2 piece wash room "sink and toilet"
3 or 4 piece "toilet,bedit, sink, tub/shower
high rise condo or rental
single level or dual level floor plan
concrete floors if so do you have access to below where washroom is

In a high rise building I would tell you to call a local contractor.

Simply because of structural issues and tenants below you. Once you talk with a local contractor they decide if you can do the job yourself.

This definitely not a job for a DIY-er . Number one is the liability factor any type of problem with the plumbing and your downstairs neighbor finds out before you do. And most of the work would have to be done from the bottom up. As far as the rough drain work. Best leave this one to the pro’s.. license permitted and most importantly insured.
