Depending on whether it is sized appropriately or not, either tear down to studs and subfloor, or tear down to subfloor for the finish shower stall area and tear out walls as necessary (hopefully only the non-load bearing ones). Then build up from scratch like any other shower install - usual order is plumbing, replace any removed subfloor sheathing (or if like me put down treated sheathing instead under entire shower area), concrete backer board on walls with proper joint sealing, water barrier (some like me put visqueen under the backer board too), shower base and waterproof lining and pan, curb, then finish interior, then doors. (Some subfloor will probably need to come up at least locally to run water and drain lines).

An architect can do plans for the work - or if DIY'ing this be sure you get necessary permits, and make sure the plumbing and shower size meet local code requirements - would be a pity to get it all put in and then be told it has to come out because it can't pass inspection.
