When I've rigged to building structures in similar circumstances, I mostly use webbing loops in basket hitch configuration and clipped the rope in with a carabiner and figure 8 bight or whatever. Keep it simple, safe and efficient.

I'd probably use a double rope clove hitch on a bight thing or a double rope bowline of some sort... Depends on the shape of the anchor and how much I feel inclined to mess with rigging really...
