Managed switch in a serviced office setup

Hi all one of my customers is moving into a shared office (many companies in the same building) and has been told they will need a managed switch in the common comms room that all of their floor sockets go back to.

I have a TL-SG2424 managed switch that we can use, I assume that there will be one connection from the building services company supplying broadband into the switch and then I will have to configure the switch to pass the connection onto the other ports that the floor sockets are connected to. (I hope that makes sense)

My question is does anyone know of an example that I can follow to get this up and running.

You'd want to use a switch for the data outlets in the office, then use a router and firewall to keep the network separate from the building internet service (if there is one).

I took the buildings main feed into the router then sent a feed from the router back to the comms room switch (that way you dont need a managed switch)
