Basement Rough-In


I am looking at trying to move the rough-in that the builder did for the basement plumbing. I do not like where they roughed it in and am looking at possibly moving it all about 10-15ft. What are the main things I need to keep in mind when trying to do this? Thanks for the help.

A few things come to mind:
Assuming you're moving it further away- Do you have about 3.5" of pipe grade to spare?
Are there any interior footings below the floor?
How will you connect to the venting and water?

I am not sure what I will have below the floor until I get it opened up. I was wondering what kind of drop I would need for the toilet.
There shouldn't be any interior footings in this location.
They did rough-in a vent pipe that connects to the rest of the venting in the attic.
