Bits of the building are missing. Conducting a wireless survey at this point in time would be useless.
If budget allows, have a look at the (J9146A) HP ProCurve 2910al-24G-PoE+ Switch which gives extra power.
Either way, watch out for the PoE. If you are going N standard wireless, on alot of vendors kit you will need a PoE+ port to run the AP's (new standard 802.3at as appose to the older 802af), as they draw more power, therfore you may need a PoE+ switch.
Again, I can only comment on the HP stuff. If you buy a dual radio AP, you only need a PoE+ port if you are running both radio's at N standard. If you are running your b/g laptops through one radio, and you N's through another, you are still fine with normal PoE.
Seriously....go N though....300Mbps to each laptop!....it's magical!
Not my problem(tm).
See as the building hasn't been handed over to the school yet, it's up to the contracters to sort it out. If it's not up to the agreed building specifications (i.e. they fit kit that isn't suitable or it doesn't work) they are in trouble.
As it is I'm doing more work than i should by sending them what I think will work. But obviously it's in my best interests for them not to cock it up.
