Once you've gathered the requirements, you'll be able to propose a WLAN implementation, including a floor plan...
with device locations, predicted coverage areas, an equipment and parts list, and of course your estimate for the time and materials necessary to deploy the proposed network. You can create your floor plan by hand, or use a professional WLAN planning program (e.g., AirMagnet Surveyor, BVS Hive, Ekahau Site Survey, Airespace Control System, Trapeze RingMaster). For example, see this RingMaster demo for an illustration of the WLAN planning process, or visit the other vendor websites listed here for additional examples.
