Conservatory tiling

I have a newly built conservatory which is going to be screeded next week. I would like to have tiles on the floor but my conservatory has a man hole in it which cannot be moved.

What do you recommend I do?

Get a double sealed, recessed manhole and frame.
Tile up to it and inside, so manhole is always accessible.
Make sure your floor screed has dried out before tiling.

you can buy manhole covers for this purpose, its a metal tray which you stick the tiles in so it sits flush. roy
