build a floating vanity

We have a GC who will be starting on my Grandpa's bathroom. My Grandpa is 90 and we while he is not in a wheelchair, we are looking to the future and are trying to make it fairly accessible. Instead of going with my idea of taking a regular vanity cabinet, taking out the floor and installing a pocket door system to move the doors if he is in a wheelchair, my mom wants to install a floating vanity similar to what is pictured.

I will be hanging out to keep an eye on what is done during construction as I know a bit more than my mom, however I know nothing about building and supporting a vanity. She is planning on having a nice stained piece of wood around the bottom (until she changes her mind) instead of the tile.

Can anyone give me an idea of what the process will be so I will have an idea of what the GC will be doing so I will know if he is doing something wrong?

I will also see if I can draw up the basic floor plan as well. The vanity will have a wall on the left and the toilet will be on the right.

One really good thing is the wall behind the vanity will be unfinished so it can easily be accessed from the other side
I'm actually more worried about the trench drain he is going to put in, but I feel better that he told us he hasnt installed one before.
