Advice for radiator pipework first fix

Hi all,

I'm hoping for a little advice regarding my self build.

I am planning on fitting all of the radiator pipework myself but have not yet decided on whether I am having a combi boiler or a solar heated water tank for my hot water or even a combination of them both or something else.
However I have reserved an area in my utility room that is large enough to accommodate anything I decide upon, this will include an area for zone valves, manifolds etc.
Hence I think I only need to have a flow and return pipe for each zone entering this area?
Will the pipework plan below (but with more radiators) work no matter what I eventually decide?


Any help would be much appreciated.
