Showers in NY State have to be a minimum of 900 sq. in. (30 x 30). If the shower is on a base you can measure the center. If a shower base is going to be made of tile you can put the drain anywhere as long as the tile base pitches to the drain. I've put them inches from walls. At least center it in the other direction so it looks nice.

Is it safe to have electrical wiring behind a shower wall?

On wiring a house it is common practice to have other circuits in the wall cavity passing by the built in shower stall. Electrical outlets that face outward from the shower stall wall that service another room is also common practice. There is no danger from electrical shock as the shower is isolated from the wires by wall board and usually ceramic tiles that make up the shower stall or in some cases a fiberglass shower enclosure.
