Default Installing in-floor hot water heat for new garage/shop.

I am almost ready to pull the trigger on having a boat/RV garage built. It would be 36x48, and have a concrete floor. I would like to know what's involved in installing the (plastic) pipe, for a hot water circulating heat system.

Does anyone here know how it's done; what dia pipe; spacing; is it layed before the welded steel re-enforcing wire is put down, or on top of it? How many zones?

The idea would be to have a building where the boat/RV would be stored without being winterized. So just keeping the floor warm, without trying to heat the entire building, should be enough.

Appreciate any help.
