Not very helpful, but yes it is standard practice to provide a floor system capable of accommodating the floor boxes, particularly for open area office spaces. On some projects we have had to accommodate electrical raceways (walker ducts), in fact this is common enough that some metal deck manufacturers produce decking with integral raceway systems.
Since it sounds like the steel joists are on site as well as the decking, the sump pan and deck reinforcement would be an option worth exploring. 2" plain concrete can span 24", so the reinforcement requirements should be fairly reasonable. The floor box you reference is available in a 2.5" depth model, is it possible the shallower box will work with an additional .0625" of concrete?
Look on the bright side, at least the concrete wasn't placed with all the boxes protruding an inch out of the slab :-)
