Small Concrete Bench in shower


I've been given the mission of remodeling a bathroom on a concrete slab. It had a walk in shower with an acrylic base. Now I have to tile the floor with a bench seat. I have read about the cinder block seat but that one goes wall to wall and this one won't. Not sure how stable it would be without support on both sides. Also causes me some concern on installing a liner now based on the shape of the floor. I was thinking about glueing down the liner, drilling 2 holes for rebar and then pouring a small concrete block. Your thoughts? Thanks

+1

The structural part of it isn't the concern. It is the waterproofing and tie in details that are the critical part.
