RE: Why most IT consultants should not run cabling
Absolutely correct. What also needs to be considered, as was touched on in the article, is not the can you physically but can you legally. In NM to run even low voltage cabling you have to be a licensed electrician. So while I physically can run and punch down cabling, even in a timely fashion, I can't run it because I am not a licensed electrician. This holds true for many other locations as well. Recently a client I work for had some cabling run and I spent some time talking to the cabling contractor about this exact issue. That's not to say that it doesn't happen but it shouldn't according to the way the law is written.
