Network Design issues

I'm in the middle of designing a network with the following characteristic:

3 buildings - 700 nodes, 250 nodes & 100 nodes

My approach is based on the Cisco 3-Tier design architecture,

2950 switches for the access layer,

2550 L3 switch for top of the stack which provides ip routing on the edge right down to the core,

a pair of Cat6500 for the core, which then connects to the internet router.

100% Gigabit Backbone between switches.

Any design problems with this approach?

What other design issues should I tackle in this scenario? vlans?

Suggestions/comments appreciated, thanks in advance.

Regards,

Zeremy

Re: Network Design issues

Why not get a Cat6509 w/MSFC to take care of layer three. You can then fiber your 2900 series switches directly to the 6509.
