SJ,
You don't need to worry about this, as your installer is giving himself a good amount of time for the floor to set up. I would still recommend that you stress to him that you don't want any chance of chipped or marred tiles. This should clue him into taking a few extra precautions on your behalf.
I'll disagree with Dean here though. I choose to set my walls first and provide a space at the bottom to slide my floor tile into. Same effect of diverting water from running directly into the pan, but it protects the floor tile from being damaged during the install of the walls. It takes confidence in your layout to do it this way but "floors first" is not an industry standard at the school I'm from.
Best of luck,
Shaughnn
