You can get a plastic tray that sets into the concrete and had a drop in wooden top panel to allow for access.  Depends what sort of flooring is going down as to whether you can use it or not.

Whilst I'm not a fan of burying pipes in floors or walls, it's not always easy to avoid.

Sounds like your plumber knows what he is doing and so I assume he has pressure tested the pipes before covering the them. In which case you should have no problems now or in the future.

Sounds pretty normal, and preferable if there are any joints.
