Renovation + Home Improvement

We bought the house which was built on 2015 with waffle slab base. I think this is very common.
Can anyone have experience with this share me any advice please?
I have contacted 2 builders. One refused to do as they said the design of the waffle slab can not take up another weight on top. The other replied to me with ‘Yes’ as they have done a few houses with no issues but didn’t mention about restructure the base.
I will show some pictures of my house’s floor plan.
I am so nervous to go ahead with this process.
