Any wiring installed within a poured concrete, adobe, plaster or any other mixed type wall covering without a chase to run the wiring in must have some type of conduit to make the chase for removal or expansion of that wiring. In the scenerio that you describe you will have to use a type of conduit that is plastic. This type of conduit material is corrosion resistant and corrosion resistant would be required in the application you descibe.

You will need a flat style conduit such as pvc flat track conuit. This style of conduit will lay thin so that your plaster does not have to be too thick.

Hope this helps
