new drain line under slab?

I'm only asking this here because I don't know if I need to do some of this as DIY or not...

I am putting in a bar in the basement, it's about 4 ft from where an existing soil stack comes out of the slab.

I already have a general idea of where it is running, it goes diagonal directly infront of where I need the drain at about 5ft in front of where the PVC drain stub needs to come out of the slab

so in a triangle I have at one point to the right the soil stack 4 ft away (3" PVC) then 5ft directly infront of that we have where it is running under the slab to the outside line.

obviously, the slab needs cut and dug out. Is this something I have to do myself? I am getting a plumber to do the actual plumbing work since there are some code issues that need fixed with the original consturction at the same time. Or is this something that the plumbers generally take care of? I haven't called anyone out let to look at the job, just wanted to get an idea of what you guys usually do or expect to be done before hand. thanks!
