Best Practices for Switch Placement

We are auditing our current infrastructure and determine how best to consolidate wiring closets.
We currently have a existing building and a new building with a “physical firewall” between them.
Pending building infrastructure, we would like to consolidate each building to one main closet.
Also, we have a fiber trunk between the buildings.
In the old building we have a upper floor and basement.
Besides the obvious consideration for 100m limit, any other suggestions on how to lay out switches?

Most layouts are determined by cable length limits and or budgets.


Thank you for the reply.

I also found your video on YouTube explaining different wiring types and it helped a lot!
