Basement Bathroom Shower Addition Advice

Hello everyone.

I've used this site for a long time because of all the amazing information, but I'm tackling a new project and decided to sign up for a more direct question. I've attached a picture of the bathroom area in the basement of my house, built in 2000. I just got around to taking down the embarassingly poor quality "walls" the original owners installed. On the bottom right corner of the picture, you can see what I assume is a drain in the floor. There is a cap glued on, so I haven't opened it yet. I would like to add a simple shower stall to the corner and I am hoping I can do it with what I have here. I have no idea if there is a P trap under the floor or if the venting is already taken care of. I won't be doing the plumbing job myself (as this is one area I have zero knowledge) but I wanted to at least get a plan together. Does anyone have any advice on this setup?

Also, the first vertical PVC pipe was connected to a pedestal sink, which I removed.

Thanks in advance!

I'm guessing at this but what I see in the picture is a WC, a ped lav rough in, a 1.5" vent for shower and capped pipe(2"?) for a shower drain. I don't see any reason why a qualified plumber shouldn't be able to plumb a bathroom there for you.
