Regulations no state that pipes in floors must be in accessible ducts. This means that a plywood duct sould be made and a lid screwed to it. The pipe sits in the duct and need be no more than 30mm deep with the lid of the duct forming part of the floor surface.

heating pipes can be buried in concrete, make sure you wrap the pipes in denso tape or something similar to prevent corrosion. About 2"- 3" below surface will be adequate.
