ABS encased in concrete

Hello, and Thanks in advance.

We are still remodeling a barn into a house, before pouring the slab, we have this question, abs per code say's not to be encased in concrete, well all drain lines are covered with dirt and crushed rock ok, now the closet flange that comes up from the ground and laundry dwv will be verticle and will be encased in concrete, how do we get around that? or can a "wrap" of some type of material be used as to not being directly in contact with concrete.? Will concrete hurt abs? There are no inspections here but want to do this by UPC. and be good

The codes in my area......which follow upc very closely, state that piping cannot be encased in concrete with the exception of where piping passes through it vertically.

This will apply in your area also if you call your plumbing inpector regarding this.
