    Best option is a slab a cm or two larger each direction but with a step down so the walls sit in the recess.

    Exact size depends on the construction and thickness of the wall panels, is there any specs for the particular model ?


    Edit:
    If it’s one of the Absco brand you can download the instructions that usually include slab dimensions.
