That is most likely a concrete floated wall, that was the old school way of building showers a few years back. It's a very well constructed shower that can last 50 plus years.

Is there a vapor bearer behind the cbu and was the seat made out of cinder blocks? If yes on both you'll be fine, that is what we call a traditional shower and can and will last 30 plus years.
