You won't be able to have a single surface with multiple z values.  Triangulation shape is horizontal only, so this doesn't allow for a single over lapping surface.  I would stick with multiple surfaces and try to make that work.

You may find some guidance here but you will need to split the surface you have into two; upper and lower
