Does anyone know what the common required specs are for a concrete floor & 
electrical service for typical two post lifts (up to the 10k or 12k lb 

Are most powered by 220vac?

I'm rebuilding our attached garage into a workshop.  I don't have plans to 
get a lift immediately, but would like that option in the future.  If 
there's anything I should do now (I'm repouring the floor and redoing the 
electrical, among other stuff) to make adding a two post lift easier in 
the future, I'd like to do it!

I'm leaning towards putting a 220vac outlet in the ceiling, along with 
overbuilding the concrete floor.  The problem is that I'm not sure what 
"overbuilding" means for the floor...
