How to elevate cased A coil on concrete floor

I am replacing the existing Heat & AC downflow system. And I need to elevate the new Cased coil 1" off the concrete floor. The new coil drain exit is 7/8" lower than the existing one and I need to raise the new one to have drainage fall. I don't want to change the existing drain. I have thought about poured 1" concrete or 3/4" sheet plywood.
I don't want to change out how it drains (perfect). How would you pros raise it?
Thanks ahead for any suggestions. I really appreciate it.

Without seeing a picture it's hard to comment but the pros usually modify the drain line.

If I had to raise it I'd try to use something the wouldn't rot from a damp floor.
If your floor was 100% dry then plywood would probably be ok.

Hard to tell with no pics but how about setting it up on some 1 5/8" Unistrut or the like.
