Buried
Explanation:
For example "buried conduit" if electrical or "buried pipework" if water / gas etc.

1 agg.inv., di tubazione, filo elettrico e sim., disposto in appositi solchi sotto la superficie esterna delle pareti in modo che restino visibili solo i comandi esterni
2 s.f.inv., canale ricavato nello spessore di una parete in cui sono inseriti i fili elettrici, le tubazioni, ecc. (De Mauro)

You could also say "chased in" or "buried in chases" particularly if you are describing the installation process rather than the nature / position of existing services.
