Pipes in kitchen - problem for designer or fitter?

Can someone help me with a daft question about fitting kitchens, please?

We're doing up the kitchen, which will involve replastering and laying a new floor, and may involve moving utility pipes.

We're currently finalising our kitchen design. The main contractor will be responsible for fitting as the kitchen company is 150 miles away.

My question: does the designer need to know the exact location of the utility pipes so they can cut holes in advance, or is cutting the holes something the fitter would do? What's the norm with these things?

What with the renovation work, I'm afraid that the pipes won't be in quite the same position relative to the floors and walls.

(I'm asking the designer the same question but thought I would canvas a wider audience just in case!)

Thanks all :)
