Are there tricks or is it something that's always tricky? I gotta be honest to say that some of the places require multiple height changes and joist orientation changes.

The original owner of our home did a decent job (I think) of hiding all the ductwork and pipes in the finished area of the basement using both false ceiling panels and lightweight drywall panels.

I never though about this until your post, but here are some pictures. Maybe you will get ideas to get your job done quickly.
