Removing Ceiling with Radiant Heat

Hello,

I am going to be remodeling my bathroom this weekend and I am planning on removing the ceiling. However, there is radiant heat installed in the ceiling.

I went to the attic and looked at it from above and it is copper pipe embedded in cement of some sort.

My question is whether the ceiling is one or two pieces - the ceiling board and then the radiant heat? Or one piece that will not allow me to remove the ceiling without the radiant heat?

EDIT: This is not a new installation it is original to the house ~60yrs.

Thanks.

The copper pipe is most likely embedded in the light weight concrete. You could cut the supply/return lines to the area and cap them off. You could then remove the ceiling - copper and all, or you could just sheet rock over the old ceiling and leave it in place.
