I have water and sewer, but they come in through the basement wall. 
Those built on a slab most likely come in under the foundation as the 
foundation, water, and sewer must go below the frost line. I don't know 
what they do where frost isn't a problem, but that foundation supports a 
fraction of the load a self supporting tower base and I'd think a 
discontinuity, or penetration shouldn't be the problem it would be in a 
tower base.
