Your intention (run everything, have an electrician make the panel connections) is what I did with my shop.

What I did was ran 10/2 for my 220v outlets, but had them put in 20amp breakers for now. If I need larger I’ll swap out breakers and outlets. For now, I only have 1 outlet installed on the 220v circuits (I ran 2 circuits of 220v, for much the same reason many say, only running probably a pair of 220v machines at once). I didn’t run anything for a mini split, or any heat/air conditioning yet. Mainly, I’m not 100% sure what I’m going to do on that front, and it’s not terribly difficult to just have them run that when they install it either.

If you’ve got the space, might as well go separate circuits on the 220v. Regular breakers aren’t THAT expensive.
