Ceiling thickness between floors in office building?

Hi! I am currenly working on a design for a building proposal. It is a 5 story office building. My Question is, how thick is it normally between the ceiling to the floor on the floor above? I have found tons of information about how thick the concrete slabs normally are, but i am interested in how much space is normally needed for the entire thing (everything between floor and the ceiling below). Partly i need to know when designing the facade, how much "dead space" needs to be accounted for between the floors.

I have currently set it to 70 cm, is that somewhat close to reasonable? or is it way too much/ to little? When looking at building facades around town, the distance between windows don't seem that far, but it could be deceiving.

I understand it can vary a lot, i just want to know average/ how reasonable 70 cm is (i just picked 70cm cause it is easy to draw and it seems plenty enough to me)

There is the thin floor on the floor above, and the concrete slab, but the big question that affects the thickness the most is the ceiling installations in the floor below, where i have no expertise whatsoever

Im not planning to go into high level of technical detail in terms of plumbing, electrical installations and such since it would make the project to massive, but i still want to account for and dedicate space to that kind of things to make the building realistic, which is why I'm asking
