Copper in basement floor

We are about to add a bathroom to the basement. I need to tear up the floor for the sewer line. I am hoping that there is a way I can also run my copper lines in the floor??
All of the walls and ceiling are finished off. I want to do as little damage as possible.
So, is there a way to safely run copper line under the concrete floor??

Copper will react adversely to the presence of concrete, so you don't want to bury it in the stuff. Have you considered cpvc?

In years past, we covered the copper water supplies in armorflex when burying in concrete. At today's prices for copper and with the availability of suitable alternatives, you might want to reconsider (unless it is required by code where you live).
