Hi Experts.  Our business is currently expanding and we will be obtaining additional space in our office building.  We're obtaining one suite above and an additional one across from the existing main office. We will have 2 separate networks.  One for data and another for voice (VoIP).

What are the best practices as far as running the cables in this situation ?   Although more expensive, is my best bet home runs from each new port/face plate to the patch panel ?  OR have a switch in each of the new suites and run one or two back to the switch.   This is an older building and the existing wiring looks sloppy.  Although not a major concern I have to keep in mind the possibility of interference.  Thanks for any tips and advice here.
