Simply Build It

You can sink the trap into the floor - this is done for level access/disabled access showers. You can also buy shallow shower traps.

Also it would be best to get a waste grate that is accessible from the top - for cleaning. As once your shower tray and trap are fitted - you wont be able to get it back out to clean - and it will become blocked with hair and soap over time.
