Hello Mavshot,
You'll need to float that bench with "fat mud". Any mechanical fasteners will compromise the waterproofing. Make sure to line the bench with expanded metal lath (diamond lath). I will cut and fold a piece to hug all of the contours of the bench and extend up above the hot mop so that I can staple it (or use roofing nails) to the frame and studs.
Best of luck,
