Framing for laundry chute

When someone is wanting to have a laundry chute facility in a 2 story home what is needed at the framing stage to allow for this? I am currently working with a new home owner and the general contractor has told them that the laundry chute is added AFTER the house is near completion. I find this hard to swallow but would like more information before I tackle the contractor

This depends on where the laundry chute is going to be and how big.

Assuming that the chute will fit between the floor joists and that the joists are properly placed, it is fairly simple to cut a hole in the floor and ceiling directly below and install a sheet metal chute. The entry and exit can be in cabinets so it really can be done at a fairly late stage in the construction.
