good/bad points of structured cabling

well it all depends on what your issue is since unfortanately there are a lot of "IT BUTCHERS" around but lets leave this alone. You might nedd to highlight potential problems because your company might be a small sized business and a correct evalaution of the current and future needs of the company will be of definite great importance.
So ensuring that you will be geared for at least 100mbps full duplex and all the stuructered cableing being up to CAT 5 standards with shuttled network points and ideally also STP (shielded twisted pairs) cabelling, that would be a good start of.

Having said that then you start knocking down from the list of possible situations well you should also get to know whether power is going to pass through the same trunking is yes you should allow atleast a gap of 2" between network and electricty.

soory but I think just quit enough to give you an idea if you need something else just contact me

I think you are right as you mention in your second para, there is also restriction applied by the TIA/EIA 586/587 cabling standard as well, for examples; restrictions on horizontal and vertical runs, IDF's and MDF's, etc.

thanks
